If Clinton wasn't willing enough to do Obama's dirty work when it comes to attacking Israel, we are now getting a glimpse at what Hagel as Secretary of State will be like as regards Israel. This man with his ludicrous comments about 'caged palestinians' and support for Iran has no sympathy whatsoever for the US only ally in the middle east. All this whilst Israel is faced with radical states around all its borders (Jordan is maintaining the coldest of peace with Israel whilst attacking it in international forums, all in a possibly vain attempt to appease and hold back the islamist tide there), and a raging civil war on its northern border with Syria.
Just last week Obama gave yet another hint as to his visceral hatred of Israel when saying that Israel's 'behaviour' will bring about its destruction. Obama is presently delivering 200 Abrams tanks and 20 F16's to Egypt to underline his 'goodwill' towards Israel. Obama is not on record criticising any other country in such terms as he's used against Israel and its leaders.
The next four years are going to be rocky for Israel (to some extent mitigated by ), as I forecast time and again before Obama's re-election by an ever naive US public, victim of a snake oil salesman. Like that great country the USA, Israel will still be there and thriving long after this administration and its president have become just a footnote in history.

In recently revealed comments, President Barack Obama’s nominee for secretary of defense Chuck Hagel made staggering accusations against Israel, alleging that the Jewish state is keeping the “Palestinians caged up like animals.”
Hagel was quoted as making the comments on January 12, 2003 by The Lincoln Journal Star, The Washington Free Beacon revealed on Tuesday.
The highly controversial nominee does not elaborate on the claim or explain how he believes Israel is keeping “Palestinians caged up like animals,” according to the Journal Star report. The comment is, however, consistent with his long anti-Israel and anti-Jewish record.
In 2007, he made a similar accusation, saying that Israel has kept the Palestinian people “chained down for many, many years.”
