Hagel Claimed Israel Controls the State Department

Considering that the State Department tends to be the part of the United States government most hostile to Israel, that is about as realistic as those Islamist accusations that the Jews control Iran.
Speaking of Iran, the Hagel speaking event was sponsored by the Iran Lobby. So the Iran Lobby will now appoint its guy as the Secretary of Defense, with not a single Democrat daring to stand up and speak out against it (with the possibly exception of Barney Frank who is only against Hagel as a gay man).
But here’s one question if Hagel had spent the last decade denouncing the influence of the Saudi Lobby or the Iran Lobby or complaining that a lot of politicians are intimidated by Muslims… what are the odds that he would be up for this job?
I can tell you that now. Zero. Absolutely utterly zero.
A 2007 speech then-Sen. Hagel delivered at Rutgers University in New Jersey as he tested the waters for a presidential run is drawing fresh scrutiny.
Hagel said the U.S. Department of State was an adjunct of the Israeli foreign ministers office, according to a contemporaneous report of the event.
The event, which was cosponsored by the Rutgers University Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the American Iranian Council, was closed to the press.
Clearly Hagel’s nomination is proof that the Jews not only run the State Department, but the Obama Administration.
Hagel has long-standing ties with the pro-Tehran lobby in the United States. Since 2002, he has appeared as a keynote speaker at fund-raisers and conferences for the American-Iranian Council, a group whose founder, Housang Amirahmadi, has boasted that he is the Iranian lobby in the United States.
Housang boasted of his campaign to conquer Obamas heart.
Iranian leaders should pay attention to what is going on, and strengthen their friends. They [Iranian leaders] should have confidence in, energize, and trust their friends [in Washington] so they enter the arena. This is very important. Therefore the next two or three months are the time to conquer Obamas heart and mind and that of his teams.
I blame the Israeli lobby.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
The Obamedia is reporting that they have been assured by the GOP that Hagel will be approved next week, so this is all a show to fool Republican voters back home.
Every Republican who votes for this lousy nominee should be primaries when they stand for re-election.
I think you’re right, he will be comfirmed. And he’ll blame Israel and the Jews forthe problems almost entirely Christians caused him. Problems largely related to his positions on US foreign policy. And other than the ZOA, virtually no Jewish groups have opposed him, no Jewish Senators will. I’m right, he’ll have answered the question of whether he holds some antisemitic beliefs.
Obvious mistake - the Middle Easterners who control the State Department are all Moslems.
Those clever Joos...having the State Department being decidedly Arabist for the last 60 years was brilliant!/sarc
So Chuck isn’t just anti-Israel, he is delusional.
