Loony Chuck Hagel: Terrorists Attack Because They “Lack Hope” Just Like the “Chained Palestinians” (Video)

Hopeless terrorists flash their guns.

No wonder Obama likes this clown.
Loony former Senator Chuck Hagel told a Senate Committee in 2011 that terrorists attack because they “lack hope.” Then he went on to say the Palestinian people “have been chained down for many, many years.”

World Net Daily reported:

Terrorism is not a belief but instead is a response to despair and a lack of hope, argued Chuck Hagel in unreported remarks during a 2007 Senate hearing.

“But when people have no hope, when there’s despair, little else matters,” said Hagel.

He continued: “And this is not about terrorists don’t like freedom. Tell that to the Palestinian people who have been chained down for many, many years. Terrorism is not a strategy, it’s a tactic. Terrorism is not a plan. It’s not a belief like democracy or monarchy. It’s a tactic.”

Hagel was speaking at a Jan. 24, 2007, Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing on Iraq.

But, don’t worry. Hagel says he supports Israel today.

    Anyone who looks or has looked into the 700 or so years that Islam has been around…


    It’s more like 1400 years. Have a look at this:

    Chucky needs to strap on a Pallie rocket and take it for a test drive over the Mediterranean.

    Hope all the RINO’s in the Senate are reading this!

    What is seemingly bizarre about Hagel’s selection is that he is apparently a “paleo-conservative” of sorts, in the Buchanan mold. But it’s not really that strange. The extreme left (Obama) and the extreme right (Hagel, the late Jesse Helms, Buchanan) share some common beliefs that are anathema to a majority of Americans.

    He is no Conservative.

    Jefferson and the Barbary Pirates – Past is Present (2009)

    America’s first war on terror Thomas
    Jefferson and the Barbary Pirates …

    What Thomas Jefferson learned
    from the Muslim book of jihad ..

    Ayatollah Khomeini

    “Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels
    against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says:

    Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]…. Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Qur’anic] psalms and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

    You neoconservatives, obviously do not value; the individual-personality.

    This “terrorists attack because they have no hope” baloney was spewed around shortly after 911 by various Islamic apologists.

    Others have also used the same faulty excuse for the inner city violence found both in this country and around the world.

    This lame excuse is, of course, utter nonsense.

    The reality is that there will never be any “hope” for those who rarely, if ever, attempt to better their lives by learning how to work for a living rather than leading a life of crime and violence.

    This is how it should be.

    The bottom line is that certain people, such as terrorists and inner city thugs, are where they’re at in life because of the way they act.

    No wonder Obama feel so superior to everyone. He surrounds himself with bigger idiots than he is. He must be emulating that “baghdad bob” position we so much enjoyed watching when we took out his buddy Hussein in Iraq.

    And the saddest part in all of this is, HOW MANY MORE LOONS ARE LIKE HIM IN WASHINGTON, I typed it but from what I have seen in the past few years, we are being fooled, broke, hoodwinked and lied to by a punch of crazy people in Washington D.C.

    NOW, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT. Call Congress and tell them to stop? Well, it is puzzling that Congress has no spine and they have laid down in front of Obama like a bunch of Chickens. They have been made the fall guys by none other than Obama himself. Now, that is where I keep shaking my head. From a senator with ties to Rezko, Wright, Axelrod and so many others, it is no wonder Congress is being insulted every day. SPINELESS!

    Allowing Obama to walk all over them.

    bg : Video – arab slave market of the 1960’s

    “It starts with the open air market in a town on the Persian Gulf – black slaves, naked men and women for sale being examined. Then we are told the trade is not just of Africans. The film moves to Qatar where local girls (veiled) are enticed from their homes into the street to watch some entertainers. The slavers can then view the girls and decide who they will buy from their parents and who they will kidnap. Children are shown in an ‘orphanage’ run by a brothel keeper for his prostitute’s children. They are viewed by a party of Arabs and two small girls are taken off to be part of a harem or another brothel. On a flight to Jeddah children are being trafficked on one-way tickets. After a hard stint buying and selling the men of the trade relax watching a European strip-tease.

    One wonders where this documentary aired as the content is quite racy by the standards of the time.

    Paging Chuck Shummer; casting an aye vote for this Anti-semitic cretin will certainly be entertaining as you try to explain this choice to the Citizens of New York.

    Post 16 should be required reading for Mr. Shummer,if you can ply him from his “face time.”

    There is no such thing as Palestine. The land of Palestine has been a barren, abandoned goat pasture for the last 1800+ years under a Turkish dictatorship (Ottoman). The word “Palestine” was invented of course by none other than the Roman CAtholic churhc. The word Palestine comes from Philistines (North African Egyptian Hamites like the RCC was originally) and is not found in the Bible as referring to Israel. Israel owns this land with Jerusalem as its capital going back 4,000 years, and was bought and paid for by Abraham irregardless of what the news mafia and the RCC think. God could care less. Mess with that land RCC/UN and you will get it in the neck LITERALLY. Of course, this was AFTER God kicked out the North AFrican Egyptian Hamites from this land for living like the devil. Then again, this is BIble and people can’t stand the BIble.

    Obama Administration Stacking the Deck with Islamists

    [Abdul-Malik also makes no bones about discussing how the election of
    President Obama is a step forward in the project of Islamization and the
    long term goal of Islamist domination which falls right in lock-step with
    that of the Muslim Brotherhood as revealed in their manifesto.


    “…even under the pressures that you and I know about, the deen of
    Islam is growing because people see even within all of this struggle it is
    better to be a Muslim under these conditions than to be a kaffir under
    any conditions… before Allah closes our eyes for the last time you will
    see Islam move from being the second largest religion in America-that’s
    where we are now- to being the first religion in America.”

    Democrats Funded by Islamists

    [“While brave young Virginia men and women are risking their lives to fight
    terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan, Connolly, Moran and Kaine are yucking it
    up with them and slapping each other on the back over at the Marriott,”
    charged VAST Chairman James Lafferty.

    He noted that the three politicians’ campaign war chests are
    heavily funded by radical Islamists who support the mosque.
    “Look at their Federal Election Commission reports,” Lafferty said. “These
    spineless politicians are owned and operated by the radical Islamists and
    their sinister front groups.”

    Cluebat to Hagel: Why don’t Greek Cypriots indulge in serial terrorism?

    Since the Islamo-supremacist occupation and ethnic cleansing of Greek Cyprus began in 1974:

    * at least 55 Greek churches have been converted into mosques
    * another 50 Greek churches and monasteries have been converted into stables, stores, hostels, museums, or have been demolished
    * the cemeteries of at least 25 Greek villages have been desecrated and destroyed
    * innumerable icons, religious artifacts and all kinds of archaeological treasures have been stolen and smuggled abroad
    * illegal excavations and smuggling of antiquities is openly taking place all the time with the involvement of the occupying forces
    * all Greek place names contrary to all historical and cultural reason were converted into Turkish ones.

    VIDEO: Famagusta, The Hostage Ghost City of Europe

    Why doesn’t Hagel howl about the continuing cultural rape and occupation of northern Cyprus? Priceless antiquities have been pillaged; Greeks have been driven from their homes; ancient churches have been converted into mosques; and the thriving resort of Famagusta transformed into a ghost town. Nobody cares.

    Instead, Hagel obsesses over the trumped-up plight of the perpetually pampered Fakestinians– apartheid Islamo-supremacists committed to genocidal jihad.
