In this article, the author reflects on nomination of former senator Chuck Hagel to be the next secretary of defense by the U.S. president Barack Obama. He mentions that the nomination of Hagel has been facing criticism especially from leaders of the Jewish community in the U.S., members of the U.S. political party, Grand Old Party (GOP) and from people of Israel. Hagel is being considered as anti-Semite as he was never an enthusiastic supporter of Israel.
