ST. LOUIS, MO - U.S. Senator Kit Bond will meet with Jewish leaders in St. Louis this morning to discuss the latest crisis in the Middle East.

Bond will speak at a forum at the St. Louis Jewish Community Relations Council.  He'll be joined by Senator Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah.

Bond, a Republican, says he supports Israel's borders.  He says the Hezbollah attack from Lebanon last week was intended to destablize the region.

The roundtable starts at 11 a.m. at the Jewish Community Relations Council.
