I don't believe it... by Jay Knott (01/07/13)       ⇌ (Israel and the US)       

"The appointment of Chuck Hagel would be a slap in the face for every American who is concerned about the safety of Israel" -


This is even better: how the Washington Times sees it:

Hagel’s group sees Iran as a future ally

"The Washington think tank overseen by President Obama’s defense secretary-designate predicts that Iran one day will be a “natural partner” for the United States and could possess nuclear weapons.

It also puts the onus on Israel to make peace with Palestinians, many of whom are governed by Hamas, an Iran-backed terrorist group bent on the destruction of the Jewish state.

The views are contained in a major policy paper by the Atlantic Council, for which former Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska serves as chairman."

The Atlantic Council does also say “The U.S. will need to persuade its Israeli ally to recognize that the changing strategic calculus in the region will require Tel Aviv to make peace with its Arab neighbors to have a secure future as a democratic, Jewish state,” which is unfortunate, since Israel is not an ally, and 'a democratic, Jewish state' is an oxymoron, but it's pretty good for a US government minister.
