First, Chuck Hagel is a higly decorated Vietnam Vet and a retired US Senator, this guy did serve his countrey--USA not Israel. He is a Republican but more reasonable then the current core Republicans. Obama does not believe in "Litmus Tests" for his appointees. Outside organizations have no right to impose their litmus tests upon Obama's appointees either. Every appointee must endure a through background check by the American Jewish community is plain false. The private Jewish organizations might be doing it; but it's not US government sponsored. So zionists get your nose out of US buiness. Your zionism stops at the borders of June '67. Instead of being concerned about Obama's appointments, fix some of your own problems espcially, the confusion and lying about settlements freeze. America wants Israel to make Peace with Palestinians, Syrians, and the Lebanonese.
