THE ISRAEL-JEWSISH LOBBY IN THE UNITED STATES ARE FIFTH-COLUMNISTS AND TRAITORS.
Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s Secretary of Defense nominee, is in trouble. Why? Because he famously said:“The Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here… I’m not an Israeli senator. I’m a United States senator.”
