The Boston Globe reports that Warren, one of only four sitting senators yet to take a congressional overseas trip, will most likely join a delegation traveling to Israel after the November mid-term election.

How she handles such a trip will be an indication of her ability to play in the Major League of presidential politics. The Israeli-controlled congressional trip will, no doubt, go no further into Gaza than a ceremonial visit to the mouth of a tunnel that reached into southern Israel.

Senator Warren should demand a personal visit into Gaza, with unfettered conversations allowed with victims of the invasion.

She should also demand a visit to the area of the West Bank where Israel claims its "right" to steal more Palestinian land for an expanded settlement between Hebron and Bethlehem.

Anything less on Senator Warren's itinerary on her first senatorial trip to Israel/Palestine would be an ominous revelation that she has betrayed her progressive fan base.
