|I am a Hagel supporter. I think he would make a fine secretary of defense -- precisely because some of his views are not 'mainstream.' I find the opposition to him falling into two baskets: the disgusting and the philosophical. The only thing standing between Israel and national suicide any more is America and its willingness to tell Israel the truth. But most U.S. senators, policy makers and Jews prefer to stick their heads in the sand, because confronting Israel is so unpleasant and politically dangerous. Hagel at least cares enough about Israel to be an exception.|
