I am still trying to understand why seventy six percent of Jews living in this country voted for obama, it make no sense to me.

Many vote for the Democrats because it is the anti-Christian party. Many Jews are taught to fear Christians because of the pogroms Jews have suffered in many countries. That is why so many of them are Democrat -- and why so many were Communists in the USSR.

Ditto. I'm a Jew who didn't and never would.
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."
