Critiquing President Obama, House Republican Whip Eric Cantor told the annual Christians United for Israel summit yesterday that U.S. Middle East policy should reflect the Judeo-Christian tradition:

Reaching out to the Muslim world may help in creating an environment for peace in the Middle East, but we must insist as Americans that our policies be firmly grounded in the beliefs of the Judeo-Christian tradition upon which this country was founded.
