BREAKING: Top Jewish Leader Says Chuck Hagel Nomination on Monday is “Most Likely”
The Algemeiner Journal ^ | 12/3012 | staff

Posted on 12/29/2012 11:28:02 PM PST by Nachum

A top Jewish leader said that former senator Chuck Hagel is likely to be nominated by the White House for the position of Defense Secretary on Monday, according to audio of an interview with a Jewish radio show obtained by The Algemeiner.

“It’s most likely that on Monday they will announce that Hagel will be the choice,” said Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice President of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, an umbrella group that represents 50 of America’s largest Jewish organizations, to Jewish talk show host Zev Brenner. The interview took place on Saturday night.

While some outlets reported that the White House contacted Jewish leaders about the appointment, Hoenlein told The Algemeiner in an email that “the White House did not call anyone that I know of.”

U.S. Jews seem to dislike/hate Israel.

Hagel is a turncoat, period. He cannot be trusted to help anyone since he will be Obama’s buttboy on Defense issues.

He is also a waiverer. He swings from side-to-side on issues like a whorehouse door in a storm. You never know if you can trust him to cover your back.

He’s just like Kerry except he didn’t visit the enemy in Paris during a time of war.

All of what you said is why he fits in so well in this administration. Birds of a feather and all.

One more step toward the day when the US will be a coalition member supporting an attack on Israel

It makes no difference who holds any of these positions, it seems to me, for Obama is really the secretary of defense himself, etc. Whoever is there is merely a placeholder for Obama. That’s why most Cabinet nominations are confirmed with little opposition.

Yep as was seen with Panetta as SecO'D it's just a political favor with incompetent people like that in an important position of power such as SOD.

Obama proved who runs things when he had everyone just sit around and watch while Americans were being attacked and eventually killed.

And then lied about it.

And of course Hilliary took all the blame for it as a good little lackey, but won't talk about it.

Bumped her head I hear, so nothing would come out of her mouth except "I don't recall"

If I was Obama, I wouldn’t trust him either. Chuck is a loose cannon.

Why would Osama Obama see that as a problem? I mean,it's not as if he's ever hidden his contempt for our Armed Forces.

The US will never be a coalition member supporting an attack on Israel, or Taiwan for that matter. It will merely stand aside and allow it to happen.

"The US will never be a coalition member supporting an attack on Israel, or Taiwan for that matter. It will merely stand aside and allow it to happen."

Well, I guess it depends on the definition of coalition. We are providing money and military assistance to Egypt including licensed production of main battle tanks. We are providing delaying cover for Iran to perfect its nuclear weapons. We are shipping munitions and providing technical assistance to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists in Syria. We may not be providing troops and pilots to directly attack Israel, but we are sure helping the formation of the Greater Caliphate which will attack Israel.

I’m all for Hagel’s nomination - and confirmation.

Elections have consequences.

It’s time that Jews learned this important lesson in life, and I think this will be a good lesson.

He had two very promising pupils, Marx and Engels. I guess it’s just the zeitgeist.

We can’t complain. We knew this or worse would happen if O was re-elected. The country is basically over.
