As Seraphic Secret indicated in yesterday’s post, Chuck Hagel, Obama’s pick for Sec. of Defense, tells us just as much about Barack Hussein Obama as it does about Chuck Hagel. At every stage in Obama’s political career he has embraced and made common cause with the Jew-haters of the left.
Of course, these Jew-haters usually use anti-Zionism as cover for their anti-Semitism. But not Hagel. He demonizes “the Jewish Lobby.” No wonder the Iranians love this guy. He’s voted against all Iranian sanctions. And stated that he is opposed to any military action against the Iranian nuclear program. This guy is perfect for Hussein Obama.
Hagel doesn’t even bother concealing his stage-one, vulgar Jew-hatred. He’s old school, man.
Now, Seraphic Secret has no doubt that Hagel will get confirmed. The Democrats have the votes. But when the J Street kapos and the Soros-funded court Jews inform us in their finest Orwellian rhetoric that Hagel is really Israel’s BFF, well, let’s go to the Jews who know him best, the Jews of Nebraska.
While former Nebraska Senator and likely Secretary of Defense nominee, Chuck Hagel, has drawn criticism in recent days over his foreign policy positions, and specifically his hostility to Israel, members of Nebraska’s Jewish community spoke to The Algemeiner about their experiences with him during his time in office.
Former editor of the Omaha Jewish Press, Carol Katzman, who was in that role while Hagel was in office, related her experiences with him in an interview with The Algemeiner.
“He was not the most responsive politician in Nebraska to me personally at the Jewish Press and to the Jewish community as a whole,” she said.
“Every other senator, Nelson, Mike Johanns, (congressman) Lee Terry and (congressman) Peter Hoagland they were all very responsive,” she explained, “it didn’t really matter what their party affiliation was, if we were soliciting them for an interview or a greeting ad for Rosh Hashonah or Passover.” However Katzman says that “Hagel’s office never even responded,” adding, “we would make repeated calls, (and received) no response it was pretty obvious that he and his staff were dismissive.”“The universal feeling in the Jewish community was don’t bother, don’t waste your time, Katzman said, “I think after a while people gave up and said, we were not going to get anywhere.”
“Hagel was the only one we have had in Nebraska, who basically showed the Jewish community that he didn’t give a damn about the Jewish community or any of our concerns,” Katzman concluded.
