Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s Secretary of Defense nominee, is in trouble. Why? Because he famously said: “The Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here… I’m not an Israeli senator. I’m a United States senator.”
On Friday, forty allegedly American Senators blocked Hagel’s nomination with a filibuster. Their message was loud and clear: “We are not United States Senators. We are Israeli Senators.”
Alan Hart, former lead BBC Mideast correspondent, expressed his disgust at the Israeli Senators’ vote on my radio show, Truth Jihad Radio, this Friday: “This is treason. Serving a foreign nation, rather than one’s own, is not just wrong - it is treasonous.”
One of the traitors, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Israel), mentioned Israel sixteen times while grilling Hagel. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Israel) mentioned Israel ten times. Altogether, Republican Senators mentioned Israel 64 times during their hostile cross-examination of Hagel. The war in Afghanistan - supposedly America’s most pressing military issue - was only mentioned four times.
Those forty Senators don’t care about US troops stuck in the Afghan quagmire, the place empires go to die. They don’t care about the US economy - which, like the US troops sent to Middle Eastern quagmires, is bleeding and dying in wars dictated by Israel, imposed on America by Israel… wars whose only purpose is to serve the interests of Israel, at the expense of the interests of the United States.
Chuck Hagel has pointed out that US interests and Israeli interests don’t always coincide. That is a massive understatement. The truth is that in today’s world, US interests and Israeli interests are in stark opposition to each other.
