The third good reason is you are an anti-semite as well.

And calling everyone who RIGHTLY considers Israel a foreign country an "anti-semite" is the sort of dreck usually reserved for the American left. UTTERLY despicable.

Israel is a foreign country. If your allegiance is to Israel and not the the USA, how about leaving?
In the fortnight since Chuck Hagel's name was floated for secretary of defense, we have witnessed Washington at its worst.

Who is Chuck Hagel?

Born in North Platte, Neb., he was a squad leader in Vietnam, twice wounded, who came home to work in Ronald Reagan's 1980 campaign, was twice elected U.S. senator, and is chairman of the Atlantic Council and co-chair of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.

To The Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol, however, Hagel is a man "out on the fringes," who has a decade-long record of "hostility to Israel" and is "pro-appeasement-of-Iran."
