Support Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) As He Speaks Out Against The Killing and Destruction In The Middle East


Hagel Floor Statement on the Current Situation in the Middle East

July 31st, 2006 - WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) delivered the following statement on the Senate floor today regarding the current situation in the Middle East:

"Mr. President, The Middle East is a region in crisis. After three weeks of escalating and continuing violence, the potential for wider regional conflict becomes more real each day. The hatred in the Middle East is being driven deeper and deeper into the fabric of the region ... which will make any lasting and sustained peace effort very difficult to achieve. How do we realistically believe that a continuation of the systematic destruction of an American friend, the country and people of Lebanon, is going to enhance America's image and give us the trust and credibility to lead a lasting and sustained peace effort in the Middle East? The sickening slaughter on both sides must end now. President Bush must call for an immediate cease fire. This madness must stop”.

SENATOR CHUCK HAGEL (R-NEBRASKA) HAS BECOME THE ONE LONE VOICE OF COURAGE IN THE UNITES STATES SENATE.

HE HAS DEFIED THE TREND OF DEFENDING ISRAELI AGRESSION WITHOUT CONDITIONS AND DEHUMANIZING ALL ARABS AND MUSLIMS.

PLEASE CONTACT SENATOR HAGEL AND OFFER WORDS OF THANKS AND ENCOURAGEMENT FOR HIS LONE BUT POWERFUL VOICE.

IF WE DO NOT SUPPORT THOSE VOICES LIKE SENATOR HAGEL'S COUNTLESS INNOCENT PEOPLE WILL CONTINUE TO SUFFER IN SILENCE WHILE THEIR HOMELANDS ARE SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROYED.

THANK HIM FOR HIS WORDS, THANK HIM FOR HIS WISDOM, THANK HIM FOR HIS COURAGE, THANK HIM FOR REMINDING US THAT THERE ARE POLITICIANS WHO WILL TAKE RISKS TO LOUDLY PROCLAIM WHAT IS RIGHT!
