What may be more troubling than Senator Chuck Hagel’s tepid attitude toward Islamic terror and annoyance with the “Jewish lobby” is the telegraphing a warning not to oppose who the President wants. The chorus of supporters who denounce what were termed as half cocked baseless arguments against Senator Hagel denouncing him as an Anti-Semite a allegation dismissed as being preposterous.
There are a few disturbing trends first apparently the sensibilities of the Jewish community at large are irrelevant to the administration. It is remarkable to declare that Jews who perceive Senator Hagel as an Anti Semite are making unfounded accusations. The Senator may truly think he does not harbor any anti Jewish sentiment and his opinions are consistent with being Philo-Semitic. However it should be up to the Jews themselves to decide who is or is not a hater.
Indeed it is troubling that despite repeated protestation of an unshakeable commitment between the
States and the selection of Senator
Hagel for Secretary of Defense and Mr. Brenan for the Central Intelligence
Agency contradict the President’s pronouncements. Israel
Further the subtle but clear warning to the pro
/Jewish community that if the President does not get his way there will be
consequences. There IS NO PLACE IN
AMERICIA’S POLITICAL DISCOURSE FOR THREATS or other rhetoric by those in power
to chill freedom of speech especially political speech. Israel
Aside from the United States distancing itself from a reliable ally these nominees seem to be too accommodating to entities hostile to America’s interests is this the attitude the United States needs at the helm of national security.
Clearly there is something about Senator Hagel’s and Mr. Brenan’s opinions and positions that are not in interest of the United States nor is the matter in how these fellows are being presented for nomination that just does not serve America’s best interests.
