That Chuck Hagel seemed confused and ill-prepared, if not dim-witted, at his confirmation hearings last week, is stating the obvious.
That he is a man of the radical left is also obvious, from his refusal to classify various terrorist organizations—Hizbullah, the Revolutionary Guard of Iran—as terrorists, to his dopey, kumbaya approach to the genocidal-yearning Iran, should be enough to convince any fair-minded person that Hagel is somewhat to the left of Fidel Castro.
It should also be obvious to anyone with a functioning cortex that Hagel despises Israel/Jews.
His comment about the Jewish lobby should have consigned him to political oblivion. But we are now living in Obama’s world where hatred of Israel/Jews is a badge of merit, a sign of “political courage.”
As I watched the confirmation hearings it come to me, once again, that Israel’s best friends are non-Jews and Republicans: Saxby Chambliss (R. Georgia), John McCain (R. Arizona), Lindsey Graham, (R. S.C.), Mike Lee, (R. Utah), Sen. David Vitter, (R. La.), Marco Rubio (R. Fl), and Ted Cruz, (R. Texas).
In contrast, Jewish Democrats who claim to support Israel have come out for Hagel: Chuck Schumer (D. N.Y.), Dianne Feinstein (D. Ca.), Barbara Boxer (D. Ca.).
My favorite quote comes from the Jewish Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, (D. Mich.), who said he thought Hagel “really advanced his own cause” at the hearing.
Levin’s comment tells us more about the Democrat party than about the Hagel. Modern Democrats, especially under Obama, follow the Communist model where party discipline, adherence to ideology, and obedience to the Dear Leader, comes before all else, especially before integrity.
How can Jews support Hagel, a man who clearly hates the Jewish state?
Most Jewish liberals are secular. They are not observant Jews.
But man yearns for a higher meaning. Man yearns for G-d. Jews who abandon Torah Judaism replace G-d’s eternal covenant with the Jewish people with a man-made religion: leftism.
And leftism is the fastest growing, most dynamic religion in Western democracies. Secular Jews are this religion’s most fanatic adherents.
Look, secular Jews were drawn to the siren song of Communism. Obama’s leftism is a fine replacement: another utopian, social-engineering scheme that promises heaven on earth, but invariably delivers hell.
Those liberal Jews who support Obama/Hagel—for they are one and the same—follow an old pattern. They are the Hellenized Jews of the Seleucid Empire, the court Jews of medieval times, and they are the Judenrat of World War II.
And those who exposed the Jew-hating, America-blaming core of Hagel, are righteous gentiles who should be blessed and honored.
