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.

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.
