Israelis may have a laugh that American anti-Sermites and muslim immigrants are eager to support Obama's choice. Did not the same folks whined about that Jews control USA, Bush and Obama? Since 70% of American Jews voted for Obama, it means American Jews have made Hagel's nomination possible.
Israel is moving to political center-right. Netanyaho basically supports Rand Paul's idea of cutting foreign aid to all. Israel's most popular centrist parties do not give a hoot about Bush, Obama, Hagel, EU, Abbas or American Progressive/GOP Jews.
