Muslim Brotherhood and Iran find something they can agree on: Chuck Hagel for Defensethe Shi'a regime in Iran have found something - or rather someone - on whom they can agree: Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.
In 2006, the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah fired countless rockets from Lebanon into Israel, then attacked an Israeli patrol on the Israeli side of the Israel-Lebanon border. Three soldiers were killed and two others taken hostage. Five more Israelis were killed in a failed rescue attempt.
As Israel Defense Forces attempted to stop the rocket fire, search for its missing soldiers and remove the Hezbollah threat, then Senator Hagel demanded an immediate cease-fire. This won praise from CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad (see above), who once said "I am a supporter of the Hamas movement."
CAIR also endorsed Hagel as a possible 2008 Presidential candidate, issuing this statement on August 28, 2006:CAIR is the Muslim Brotherhood's US branch. And as you can see from the picture above, Hagel is also highly regarded by the Brotherhood's state patron, 'our friends the Saudis.'
Potential Presidential candidates for 2008, like Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Joe Biden and New Gingrich, were falling all over themselves to express their support for Israel. The only exception to that rule was Senator Chuck Hagel ....The above was reported by the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) on their website on March 12, 2007.
