President Obama's second term may include some cabinet reshuffling, and guess who might become Secretary of Defense.... Yes, Chuck Hagel.
Many believe that current Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is only going to stay on as long as he has to, and sources say candidates for replacing him are already being discussed.
Chuck Hagel, former Republican senator from Nebraska and good friend of the Presidents, is being mentioned as a top candidate according to Politico.
But the prospect of Hagel in such a high-level position would be a cause for concern for the state of Israel seeing as he has a history of castigating the Jewish state while also downplaying the threat of its enemies.
He is one of the most hostile critics of Israel that has ever been in the Senate, Morton Klein, President of the Zionist Organization of America told The Algemeiner.
There is only a handful of senators that have been openly hostile to Israel and Chuck Hagel is one of them, he added.

I’m predicting a world war.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
He may hate Israel but I don’t think he hates the military as much as Obama.
He was on PBS tonight. He looked like hell. I tuned him out but did wonder why he was on.
Good. Let the bad blood out instead of sharpening the knives at the dinner table.
He could appoint mayor Bloomberg as Sec Def for all I care. The sec def follows direction of the president ,
So it doesn’t really matter in the end .
Same here, and it’s not going to be a walk in the park like the last 2.
Glad Hagel is gone from my state, but worried what this douche-bag can do to the rest of the country!
Does anybody else besides me wish these scumbags would just disappear, go away, vanish or take a trip with Wylie Coyote?
Oh my God.
Yes, Chuck Hagel.
Then it should be “rhymes with F***”
It appears Deb Fischer was on to something...
OMAHA, Neb. Democrat Bob Kerrey got an atta-boy Thursday from former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel, who said the former senator would break the partisan nonsense thats literally strangling our country. Republicans supporting GOP hopeful Deb Fischer in Nebraskas tight Senate race scoffed and suggested Hagel was sniffing around for a cabinet seat under President Barack Obama.
Jews get what they voted for.
Hagel will be called the Marxist’s token Republican, when in fact, he’s just another traitor and Israel hater.
Pray more than ever for Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu.
Not a fair statement. That’s like saying all US citizens voted for Obama and that is why was elected.
If 70% of Americans voted for Obama, he would most definitely have a mandate for total socialism since "the people" overwhelmingly supported it. As it stands, half of America did not support him.
Let me know when half of American Jews start opposing the Democrat's agenda.
This Hagel guy REALLY is a troll LIB posing as a Repub.
Damn happy Deb Fischer defeated Hagel’s butboy, Bob Kerrey
That’s outrageous. Hagel is worse than a democrat. He’s a traitor to our military with an ugly agenda.
I can see it now: The lamestream applauding the Marxist for selecting a “republican.” Give us a break.
Sounds like BHusseinO’s choice for the job, if he hasn’t already promised it to Valerie Jarrett or “reverend” Wright, that is...
There are many Jewish Freepers, so Perhaps you should not speak for them.
It’ll be even worse than that. The msm will have the gall to call him a “Conservative Republican”. Bank on it!
“There are many Jewish Freepers, so Perhaps you should not speak for them.”
Pray for the peace for Jerusalem!
Yeah, well, didn’t most of the Jews go ahead and vote for BO anyway. Doesn’t seem like they give a rats a#$ about Israel to me.
I’m amazed he hasn’t picked Powell yet. He may be saving him for the VP slot once Jackass Joe ‘retires’ for health reasons.
He should just appoint Colin Powell if he wants a token Republican. After all they are both black-sort of.
Perhaps I am tired of hearing fellow freepers continually claim that Catholics are "wholly owned by the Democrat Party" when 50% of Catholics vote for RATs, but Jews are "in play for the GOP" when 70-80% vote Democrat in every election for at least the last 80 years.
We have black freepers too, but nobody pretends black Americans are a "swing vote"
I tend to agree with you. Support for Israel is not a priority for the majority of Jews in this country, let alone the rest of the electorate. Oh, and for those that bring the biblical doom to this country for not supporting Israel, I guess you missed the last two presidential elections. The doom is already here.
You could be right and Colin likely has to ask Alma...lol.
ROTFL @ “sort of”
And here I thought he’d choose WEASLEY CLARK the perfumed prince.
