    Geez…has the lobby even intimidated people from commenting on this strip :-) I for one think we’d be a great choice instead of most in the past who have no combat experience. Obviously not a requirement for the job although certainly helpful when considering the ramifications of that department.

    Interesting that the latest election in Israel shows up as a “rebuke” for Netanyahu, and that many, if not actually most, ISRAELIS, can’t stand him, or the right wing extremism of Likud. However, other right-wingers do give him a slight margin of support.


    Hagel called it exactly right in addressing AIPAC and the evangelical Christians in this country who defend Israel no matter what. Interesting on the evangelical side, it’s only because they want all the Jews to either become Christians, or burn in Hell, ’cause you know, the “Rapture” is just around the corner, just like Paul, Mark, Luke, and James (brother of Jesus) taught some 2,000 years ago! They may still have a long wait, unless Netanyahu and the extreme right on the Zionist side, get their way.

    I believe that about 75% or MORE of the criticism of Hagel would not have been voiced if “President-Elect Romney” (Shudder) had nominated him for the exact same
    post!

    I like having a soldier up for the job.

    Something worth keeping in mind. Israel just proved they are a country with varying views rather than millions of people with a single mind.

    You and I tend to agree on things, but I’ll add my own spin to this. I think the evangelical Christians side with Israel because, while they don’t agree with the Jewish faith, they feel they can co-exist with it. They don’t have the same “comfort level” with the Muslim faith.

    When they get their way we will know. They will have pushed the Palestinians away from Jerusalem and nuked Iran.

    Not coexist with it so much as co-opt it into Jesus as god believing Christian rabbi! Messianic Judaism. Kill the faith not the person.

    “Not coexist with it so much as co-opt it…”

    I believe that as well. I always found it telling that “conservative” Christian teachings usually refer to the Jews of the Bible as Israelites rather than Jews.

    I have not heard him saay anything Against Israel. Our government does everything Israel wants. the thing that really bothers me, is the rise of anti-semite. More racial and cultural intolerance.
    anti-women, anti- black, anti-Latino, anti-Jew , anti- Muslim, This is out of control and stupid.

    Wabbit, I’m not looking to pick a fight here, I am truly curious as to where and why you feel this “anti” sentiment is emerging. I live in California and we’re pretty homogenous as a state and I don’t see a lot of discriminatory behavior. Sometimes with our welfare population and funding problems I wish the state would be a little more discriminating in their handouts, but it’s not a racial thing.

    Oh, Absolutely! The GOP said even before he took office the 1st time that they would NEVER vote for ANYTHING that Obama Wanted. even if it was a bill that they had proposed. So they have been against even Jobs! They rejected to jobs bills. The last thing they did before leaving in the fall was to say “NO” to the jobs for vets.
    We have to act against RED-MAPping!
