81 members of Congress will...

...have traveled to Israel this year before the summer comes to an end.

The Daily Mail notes that they are visiting Israel not on their dime, nor on that of the American taxpayer.
The American Israel Education Foundation is shelling out to take around eighty congressmen to Israel during the summer recess period.
The group is supporting organisation to the American Israel Public Affair Committee (AIPAC) which describes itself as 'America's leading pro-Israel lobby'.
The article also notes that many members of Congress are meeting with both Israeli and Palestinian leaders while they are in Israel.
