Listed in: Other Foreign Policy, NJDC News, Press Releases

WASHINGTON, DC- The National Jewish Democratic Council today reacted to the news that former Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) will be nominated to be Secretary of Defense:

“President Barack Obama’s unprecedented pro-Israel credentials are unquestionable, and setting policy starts and stops with the President. While we have expressed concerns in the past, we trust that when confirmed, former Senator Chuck Hagel will follow the President’s lead of providing unrivaled support for Israel—on strategic cooperation, missile defense programs, and leading the world against Iran’s nuclear program.”
