    I was correct-from the NY Times
    Conservative and Jewish groups reiterated their concerns on Monday that Mr. Hagel has opposed sanctions on Iran, failed to support Israel, and has advocated engaging with Hamas and Hezbollah. They want him to explain why he once referred to pro-Israel lobbying groups as “the Jewish lobby,” a phrase they said was hurtful to Jews.
