Hagel Thumps ‘I Love Israel’ Litany, Visits Yad VaShem

Who cares whether Hagel loves or hates Israel? The US needs the Jews. He brought money and parroted the official line: ‘Israel has the right to defend itself.” Thank you. He even visited Yad VaShem.
Hagel pro-Israel?

Hagel pro-Israel?

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel toed the official Obama administration line Sunday in his first visit to Israel in his new post, repeating the mantra” Israel has the right to defend itself.”

If anyone wants to interpret that as just a banal and superfluous statement, he made it clear that he is not ignorant of the danger to Israel of an Iranian nuclear weapon. He told reporters en route to Israel that a multi-billion dollar arms deal with Israel sends “another very clear signal to Iran,” although he did not note that Iran so far has not understood “signals.”

As is de rigueur for a maiden official visit to Issue, Hagel dutifully visited the Yad VaShem Holocaust Memorial Museum and Center, where he not so profoundly declared of the Holocaust, “It is reality. It happened.”

The Washington Post on Sunday called his visit a “charm offensive” to dispel the unusually vocal and often acid criticism of him before the Senate agreed to accept his nomination as Secretary of Defense.

For a man who once said the “Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here,” Hagel so far has done a good job of showing how much he really loves the Tribe. If he doesn’t love Jews, at least he needs us.

Then again, the United States also needs the Arabs.

Whether that need is for security or for the military-industrial complex in the United States is another question. Whatever the answer, the fact is his trip is aimed at sealing multi-billion dollar agreement for buying weapons not only with Israel but also with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Click here to understand if Israel really needs or can afford the weapons.

Behind the words of love and money for a possible war, Hagel does not hide a basic disagreement between the United States and Israel – the timing of a military strike on Iran, if necessary.

He insist negotiations, which so far have been a bad act, sanctions can alter Iran’s nuclear plans. Sanctions have definitely had an impact on Iran’s economy but not on its race for a nuclear weapon, which, according to the Ahmadinejad regime, exists only in the wild imagination of the Zionist enemy.

By the time Hagel returns to Washington, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE are expected to have signed up for to buy enough F-16 fighter jets and advanced missiles that can be launched from the air to scare the dickens out of any normal country that threaten others.

The Obama administration is still trying to hope that Iran will be a normal country.

  1. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    BULL..the US State Department under obama's orders purposely released an openly fraudulent and erroneous "human rights" report to coincide with his visit. The report, obviously penned by the Arabists at State, and edited heavily by Kerry, obama and samantha powers is more indicative of the growing OFFICIAL Jew hatred now embedded within the Democratic Party. The 2012 convention was proof of that,

    obama and his cult are turning the US of today into an image of Nazi Germany of the 30s, with just as amny kapos telling Jews not to start trouble and "fall in line".

  2. Obaid Karki says:

    I am probably asking too much honesty from the dishonest. Tell me. How many thousands Israelis were killed by those 22,000 pen[i]s size Hamas, Hezbollah & Iran made rockets rain on Israel since 1990? One Thai farmer in Gosh Gatif. And How Many thousands Arab, elders, women and sleeping babies doled by of PLO, Hamas, Hezbollah & Iran Traitors to IDF, IAF, Mossad & police losers to kill? Over 50,000. If the blood money of each victim is $50,000 then Israel owe arabs $.2,500,000,000. Arabs as camels they neither forgive nor forget. Never mind we will be happier if you leave the holy land and go back home to your New Jerusalem Nigeria.
    I love Chuck Hagel when he snubs Israeli fools. Just seven weeks ago. Israelis armed to teeth to assassinate Hagel’s character as they did it to Charles Freeman. They used every Corrupt Republican Frugal and Deranged Teeebaagerzz hippie at the house and the senate to take away his Pentagon job and dole it an Israelifirster. They failed. Washington believes that’s its Arab Thugocracies’ fault that Israelis are the Endangered Species of the Middle East and Arab Thugocracies must pay for it. Arab Thugocracies must fund Arming Israel against its Pacifists enemies as Iran, Hezbollah & Hamas who never killed a single Israeli and allowed Israeli to kill thousands of them as sitting ducks. Israel uses their rocket rain as CRY-WOLF to capture headlines and to get American fools’ sympathies). In another word Israel is Arab Thugocracies liability. Have you noticed over the weekend – Two specimens of those Arab Thugocracies been extorted by Obama at the Oval office: “Arm Israel or I will have McCain Germs devastate the hell outta you”. Now I feel better. Saudi & UAE are paying Hagel for Israel’s order of missiles for its fighter aircraft, plus KC-135 refueling planes that could be used in long-range strike on country like Iran, as well as V-22 Osprey transport planes. Robert Burns TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) Reports: “Saudi Arabia and the UAE are part of $10 billion proposed US arms sale THAT INCLUDES ISRAEL. The UAE would get about 26 F-16 fighters and Saudi Arabia would get advanced air-launched missiles.” Chuck Hagel told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “you’re on your own now. Iran is yours and your butt is theirs”. But he added, "When you back down into the specifics of timing of when and if Iran decides to pursue a nuclear weapon, there may well be some differences."
