    This morning Ashkelon was bombed by a grad rocket for the first time since the end of Pillar of Defense, the Israeli initiative to stop the rockets from the Gaza Strip last November. In addition, the PA has been inciting rioting in Judea and Samaria in the last few days. As Secretary of Defense, G-d forbid, Mr. Hagel would probably shrug his shoulders and nod in agreement with these violent activities against the civilian population in Israel. Israel needs the support of the United States at this very critical time in Israel’s continuing effort to sustain herself. Please do not let her down. Please vote down the nomination of Chuck Hagel today and select a nominee who is competent, insightful, caring, and knowledgeable about military affairs. Such a decision to vote down Mr. Hagel’s nomination might make Iran think twice about pursuing a nuclear weapon. It would make North Korea think twice about further provocations.
