Chuck Hagel has fans! They don't like Israel.
This is rather typical of the kind of mail we get supporting Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense:
Subj: Hagel is a prophet...An Icon
Hagel is a fearless prophet like Isaiah, Hosea, Ezekiel, Micah and other Biblical prophets who warned the wicked Hebrews to repent from their ways. Jews today cannot see their blatant evil in supporting and condoning the vile and oppressive occupation regime against the Palestinians. Hagel is my hero. A truth teller. Fighting the lies of the Zionists.
We hear Democrats trying to explain away Hagel's record, but few willing to stand up to his zealous fans.
