Iranian state press, Press TV, is praising President Barack Obama's likely defense nominee as "anti-Israel," according to a piece published on the propaganda outlet's website. The piece is titled, "Obama expected to nominate anti-Israel Hagel as secretary of defense."
The piece begins, "US President Barack Obama is expected to nominate former Senator Chuck Hagel, an outspoken critic of Israel, as the next Pentagon chief."
Hagel has not yet been officially nominated for the defense secretary position, but all indicators suggest he's at the top of President Obama's list.

Isn’t Hagel in the picture with Kerry, greeting the Chi Coms?
Ed Koch, former New York mayor and supposed friend of Israel, is expressing concern that Obama may appoint Hagel as Secretary of State.

The American Jewish community, which consistently votes for anti-Israel Democrats, suffers from collective stupidity.
I regret I do not know Hagel (my fault, my ignorance) but if he is anything like he’s described then he’s a real embarrassment to the R party and we should definitely try to get somebody else elected there!!!!
