Judicial hearing / Pressure on Israel

I would like to get a pledge from Judge Sotomayor that she will never refer to the role of International law in deciding a US Supreme Court case. Our constitution is pure Americana, and while there may be nice points of law in Europe,etc, she will be rquired to uphold our laws,
Surely she will be confirmed,however Repoublicans should give her a tough set of hearings ala Bork and Thomas.

The reports that the US has given Israel 6 months to toe the line or they will withdraw from their role in peace talks,is just a silly threat. I would love to hear the reports of today meeting between Obama and the Conf. of Presidents.We see much pressure from the EU and the WH on Israel-zero on Abbas and company.
