Smelling Chuck Hagel & Other Anti-Semites

My alarm bells went off when the President chose Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.

But that’s the business of our Senate, most of which unfortunately follows the President like a lapdog. As for me, I’m just a Zhid from a village in the Ukraine who knows when something, or someone, stinks.

About the Author: Vic Rosenthal created FresnoZionism.org to provide a forum for publishing and discussing issues about Israel and the Mideast conflict, especially where there is a local connection. Rosenthal believes that America’s interests are best served by supporting the democratic state of Israel, the front line in the struggle between Western civilization and radical Islam. The viewpoint is not intended to be liberal or conservative — just pro-Israel.

The author's opinion does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The Jewish Press.

  1. as a tea party independent, I can strongly support hagel (as well a kerry for state) as eminently qualified and balanced. this fight by the neocon israel first lobby to stop his appointment is simply one more glaring example of israeli interference in u.s. politics. it's wrong and won't succeed.

  2. Craig Dillon says:

    I see you do not deny any of the statements that Hagel made, you just don't like them. You don't deny the existence or power of the Israel lobby, you even contend it will deny Hagel's confirmation, you just don't like Hagel mentioning its existence. You want the US to unquestioningly back every Israeli action and policy, which the US has been doing. Does that not make the US subservient to Israeli foreign policy? Thus, isn't Hagel accurate?

    Odd how you equate even questioning a single policy of Israel as being anti-Israel, and then you equate that with being anti-semite. You maintain that anyone who thinks differently with you on any Israeli issue makes that person an enemy.

    Personally, I think that Netanyahu and the religious right that dominate Israel today are not interested in ANY solution that gives the Palestinians a state. They want to continue, and even expand, the policy of apartheid. Yet most analysts believe that that is not sustainable. But, you want to tie Amerca's hands to Netanyahu's tiller? We must not do that. We must have a president and state department who puts America's and the world's interests ahead of Israel.

  3. Dear Mr. Rosenthal, your suggestion that the President or his cabinet members are insufficiently supportive if Israel is not fair.

    I challenge you to name one other country in the whole world that treats Israel better than the United States.

    What smells is how one small religious group and one small country can be so high and mighty and be cowered to by our government. You and Bebe are not that important. Your not special. Your a problem.
    Sit down and shut up for a change.

  6. You are the typical gentile bigot who will always find a reason to bash Israel and its supporters. You and your ilk are jealous of Jews and of Israels great success in the world. You want the Jews to be dmimmies,as we were, under the foot of all gentiles in every country we lived. Sorry moron, we have are rightful country and you and your racist gentiles can kiss my tuchus !!!

  7. I come from the same background as the author describes and smelling anti semites is easy because their stench is that of a rank sewer. the world is becoming a sinkhole in which the highest human aspirations that are part and parcel of Jewish civilization are disregarded.

    "a shadowy Jewish conspiracy pulling the strings that control our government" – when the U.S. sends $2.4 million a year to Israel to buy weapons – it does make gentiles wonder a bit. Note that this amount is about a third more than is given to the next nation in line, Egypt, who receives around 1.7 billion a year.
