It doesn't threaten Israel in the slightest. If Rahm goes down, that would be a very POSITIVE thing for Israel. Rahm Emanuel choreographed to handshake the Oslo accords, which emboldened the Muslim terrorists to do suicide bombings in Israel. Without him, there's no aura of "well they've got a pro-Israel guy in the cabinet!" and hopefull people will see the administration for what it is: completely and utterly anti-Israel.
