So who says Hagel is anti-Israel? The regime in Iran, that’s who.
On the Iranian government-run channel Press TV, the headline (from last week) was:
“All signs indicate that US President Barack Obama is poised to nominate anti-Israel ex-Senator Chuck Hagel as the next defense secretary soon, informed sources say…
“Hagel’s nomination is expected to spark a row in the Senate. Many pro-Israeli groups and neo-conservatives have spouted diatribe against Hagel over his criticism of Washington’s anti-Iran policies and Israel’s sway over the US political arena. “
I suppose Iran may be counted upon to recognize a fellow anti-Semite when they see one.
Please contact your senators today! It is easy to email them a brief “Reject Hagel” message by clicking on www.senate.gov and clicking on “Find Your Senators” in the upper right corner. If your senator is a Democrat and you voted for Obama, tell them this really is not the kind of foreign policy you hoped to see.
