I know Ron Paul was one of the only congressman that voted against condemning Israel, but does anyone know who ELSE voted the same way?

I can't seem to find any information on that roll call vote.

Thanks

Someone asked the same thing months ago and I spent a lot of time researching this and I could not find an actual Congressional vote. I searched through all the votes in the 80s and 90s for key words and couldn't find anything. All I found was a UN vote.

When Ron mentions this event, I don't ever remember him talking about an actual vote. He talks about Congress condemning Israel but he doesn't say it happened through a formal vote.

I searched, but I don't think the House voted. There was a UN vote, perhaps it was if we should vote yes or not there. Jack Hunter talks about this and I emailed him about Newt's postition but did not get a reply.
