Chuck Hagel
ReutersThe Emergency Committee for Israel (ECI) placed a full-page ad in The New York Times on Tuesday publicly impugning the nomination of Chuck Hagel as President Barack Obama’s top choice to fill the position of Secretary of Defense.

Hagel, the former Republican senator from Nebraska who is likely to succeed Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, has ignited fury from the mainstream Jewish community for his numerous anti-Israel remarks, including his statement regarding the intention of the “Jewish lobby” to intimidate U.S. lawmakers.

The long list of Hagel’s past anti-Israel policies and statements includes failing to sign onto a letter calling on the European Union to list Hizbullah as a terrorist organization, voting against a resolution calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization, and signing onto a 2009 letter urging President Barack Obama to begin peace talks with Hamas
