Colin Powell: It’s ‘disgraceful’ to play anti-Semitic card against Hagel | Capital J

January 14, 2013
(JTA) During his “Meet The Press” appearance over the weekend, Colin Powell ordered Chuck Hagel to write 100 times on a blackboard that there is no Jewish lobby, just an Israel lobby.
But Powell also gave Hagel’s critics the paddle for playing the anti-Semitism card:

They [hawks] can make all the criticisms they want. When they go over the edge and say because Chuck said Jewish lobby, he is anti-Semitic, that’s disgraceful. We shouldn’t have that kind of language in our dialogue but they’re fully entitled to their views and I didn’t ever think they would go away and not be heard from again.

Didn’t Hagel say Jewish Lobby? Did he apologize for it or dig in his heels? Powell is a supporter of Israel in name only… Just like he is a Republican in name only.

Compromise is how this country was founded,” he said, offering as an example the issue of slavery. “Can you imagine more difficult compromises today?” he asked. “We have a Congress now that can’t even pass an appropriations bill.”

Who does that sound like? Oh yeah… that is what Obama keeps on talking about. The compromise on slavery argument is completely out of context, unless we are talking about… a guy who is listening to what Obama believes.
