Pamela Geller: “The one-two punch of Brennan and Hagel is an insult to all free people”

Yet more evidence of the guiding principles of Obama’s consistent foreign policy. “Pro-jihadist John Brennan to head CIA?,” by Pamela Geller at WND, January 9:

…The one-two punch of Brennan and Hagel is an insult to all free people. In the Senate, Hagel amassed a significant track record as one of a hardline hater of Israel who would not affix his name even to the most innocuous pro-Israel initiative. When all but four senators signed a pro-Israel statement in 2000, Hagel was one of the holdouts. The next year, he was again among the few senators — 11 this time — who refused to add their names to a statement urging George W. Bush not to meet with Yasser Arafat as long as the Palestinian groups under his control continued to pursue violence against Israel. In 2005, Hagel, along with 26 other senators, opposed a call to the Palestinian Authority to disqualify terror groups from participating in elections. And when 12 senators wrote to the European Union in 2006 asking that the EU join the U.S. in classifying Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, Hagel was once again one of the few.

Hagel wasn’t intimidated, and Barack Hussein Obama wasn’t either. In late October 2009, Obama appointed Hagel co-chair of his Intelligence Advisory Board. And in a particularly piquant symbolic move, the appointment was announced at J Street’s first annual conference — by Steve Clemons of George Soros” New America Foundation. And now Hagel is getting a promotion from his grateful anti-Israel boss.

How is it possible in the 21st century that a Jew-hater like Chuck Hagel would be named secretary of defense and a jihad enthusiast like John Brennan would be tabbed to head up the CIA? One word: Obama.

Read it all.

    Perfect example of why RS should bud out of general political commentary and stick to his area of expertise.
    Anyone who labels Hagel a Jew hater is …an ISLAMOPHOBE. End of story. No further debate. (Many JW regulars will fail to grasp the sarcasm).

    Anyone who mindlessly reiterates such a stupid comment is obviously an Islamophobe and deserves no further consideration.

    “Bud” out.” Really?

    Guess who’s obviously an idiot, darmanad? Your evident lack of intellect disqualifies you from offering criticism about RS. You dirtbags are all the same.

  3. says

    Well, the Muslim Brotherhood global jihad plan included destroying us “from within.” Obama and Valerie Jarret are Muslim Trojan horses, now the CIA is going to be destroyed by a useful idiot.

  4. says

    Brennan’s sympathy for Islam should have been recognized during a routine security clearance update years ago. He’s been with CIA for 25 yrs, so he’s not entirely Obama’s creation.

    I saw him on CSPAN praising Islam to a group of muslims at some function. “Merciful and compassionate…” garbage as usual. Does he really believe that Islam is merciful and compassionate?

    With him at the top, and the CIA Dir of Counterintelligence an actual convert to Islam, I doubt FBI or NYPD will share anything of real value with them for years to come.

    Brava, Pamela!

    Master O is the second most interesting man in the world…He golfs overhanded and does everything else underhanded (Israel look out)…He commits acts of treason every day and never gets dirty…
    Nine people are employed full time just to dust him off, and keep him clean…
    Valerie Al-Jarrett, Abdbamah Hegal, Abdbamah Brennan,
    Al-Clinton, Al-Rice, Al-Carney, Abu Axlrod, cleaning specialists Kathy Griffin, and Regie Love, and a cast of hundreds of bit players, all armed with feather dusters and wash cloths…
    He is…The second most interesting man in the world…and the cleanest…

    AIPAC is neutral on Hagel, the Jew-hater.

    “Honestly, if Hagel were to go down, it would do more to focus attention on the unseemly influence of pro-Israel hawks on American foreign policy than anything in recent memory. That may be why, so far, AIPAC is officially neutral on his nomination. Neutral isn’t an endorsement, and certainly suggests their reservations, but if AIPAC isn’t ready to make this a fight, it’s hard to imagine a major Democrat bucking the president to do so.”

    “Known by this reporter for the past two decades, Hagel has always been supportive of Israel and the U.S. commitment to defend it. But he has been highly critical of Israel’s growing settlements in the West Bank, which he said is tantamount to annexation, making a Palestinian state impossible.”

    “Hagel is also firmly against any bombing of Iran by the Israeli air force. But there he is not alone as three former Israeli intelligence chiefs ” Mossad, Shin Bet and the military ” who retired in 2011 have said such an action would be a tragic mistake.”

    “When 66-year-old Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) bucked the Neocons during the George W. Bush administration he made many enemies in the Republicans Party. Hagel’s reluctance to rubber stamp Bush’s war policies especially on Iraq left him at odds with Vice President Dick Cheney and his Neocon cabal, including Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz and the whole pro-Israel gang at the Pentagon’s Office of Special Plans, especially Douglas J. Feith Jr. and Richard Perle.”…

    ” Senior Israeli diplomat Deputy Israeli Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon voiced no objections to Hagel’s nominataion. “I have met him [Hagel] many times, and he certainly regards Israel as a true and natural U.S. ally.”

    “”In the United States, policy is made by the president, not by the members of his Cabinet,” said former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens, downplaying any problem with Hagel’s nomination or any objections in the U.S. or abroad.———————————-

    National Jewish Defense council supports Hagel nomination. I guess they must be Jew haters, too.:

    The National Jewish Democratic Council said it was confident that Hagel would follow what it called Obama’s unprecedented pro-Israel record.

    The NJDC statement Monday morning came before Obama’s formal announcement nominating Hagel.

    “While we have expressed concerns in the past, we trust that when confirmed, former Senator Chuck Hagel will follow the President’s lead of providing unrivaled support for Israel — on strategic cooperation, missile defense programs, and leading the world against Iran’s nuclear program,” said the statement…

    What? Who is he and why don’t we already know this? (I Googled but came up with nothing.)

    You are entitled to your opinion, but not entitled to tell RS what he should, or should not do…If he wants your advice, he would ask for it…
