From a speech Hagel made at Rutgers University (yeah, buddy! Jersey represents!) in April of 2010:
Secretary of defense nominee Chuck Hagel said Israel is on its way to becoming an apartheid state during an April 9, 2010, appearance at Rutgers University, according to a contemporaneous account by an attendee.
Hagel also accused Israel of violating U.N. resolutions, called for U.S.-designated terrorist organization Hamas to be included in any peace negotiations, and described Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “radical,” according to the source.
....He said that Hamas has to be brought in to any peace negotiation.
Sounds like some serious anti-semitism being covered there by anti-Zionism, Chuckie Boy...
But that's OK, apparently. John McCain and Lindsey Graham aren't bothered enough by it to block the nomination, and jeez - American Jews voted for Barack Obama in massive numbers, well aware of his, ahem, "proclivities".
So bring it. Seems like some people need to learn a serious lesson. And I for one think it is time to stop protect people (especially my people) from the consequences of their choices...
