AIPAC doesn't support Obama now, and like I said he isn't running for jack. If the D's revolt on this nomination they are not going to suddenly have to not tow the line on other issues, AIPAC only controls ME policy.

The real question is what would the Senate do, since they are nutless and controlled by AIPAC, Hegel has no chance of confirmation.

I'd like to see the hearings, it would be illuminating.

Bibi being a jerk to Obama and openly supporting his enemies makes his nomination more likely. Add to that the continuing settlement building policies and the wide world condemnation mainly from European countries.
Payback time for bibi

Is the love for Israel a partisan thing? Last time I checked America's government as a whole is guilty of what you're alleging.

Israeli Firster chuck shummer said he would not support hagel for the defense post because he is not pro Israel enough

excellent post by Thomas Friedman in the nyt editorial on the hagel nomination

quote:

The disgusting is the fact that because Hagel once described the Israel lobby as the “Jewish lobby” (it also contains some Christians). And because he has rather bluntly stated that his job as a U.S. senator was not to take orders from the Israel lobby but to advance U.S. interests, he is smeared as an Israel-hater at best and an anti-Semite at worst. If ever Israel needed a U.S. defense secretary who was committed to Israel’s survival, as Hagel has repeatedly stated — but who was convinced that ensuring that survival didn’t mean having America go along with Israel’s self-destructive drift into settling the West Bank and obviating a two-state solution — it is now.

Here's an excerpt from a Scott McConnell article:
quote:

It’s really at this point about Obama more than Hagel, his backbone, his readiness to fight when he meets opposition. A replay of the Chas Freeman debacle of the last administration on a far larger scale would signal that Obama will likely capitulate to Netanyahu in his second term, much as he did in the first. The President is in danger of becoming known as a figure who won’t put up a fight when facing opposition, someone who hoards political capital–saving it up for what is not exactly clear.

Can't blame him for wagering
Aipac too powerful and will break his back
Eventually, like usual, he'll nominate someone who puts israeli interests first

I was really looking forward to the militant homosexuals, zionists, and evangelical christians uniting on something.

So you are anti-Semite like Hagel. Obama loves him some anti-Semites.

Hagel is awesome. Time to put Israel in their place and quit letting them dictate our foreign policy.

As someone who doesn't have to run for reelection again and who has Secret Service protection for life, what can AIPAC do to him?

Ruin his 2nd term and make him a lame duck president
by eliminating his senate support in the senate with prominent zionists like with like Fienstien and Shummer (already seeing some with shummer)

heck they can even come up with a lewinsky type scandal and get him out of office

You're talking about political capital which is meaningless to second-term presidents who are willing to spend it all. And sure, they can ruin his second term if they want to, but not without hurting the country, their party and destroying their own careers, and I don't see Feinstein and Schimer as the kamikaze types.

"Time to put Isreal in their place". So you side with the Arabs who have continuously used oil to rape the US economy & who have produced the overwhelming majority of terrorists around the world? When Iran finally produces its atomic bomb, I for one will be very glad to know Isreal has the ability to take it down, whereas Hagel will still be negotiating with the criminals who run that country. As the saying goes, the enemy of my enemies is my friend, and Isreal is the only friend the US has in that part of the world.That there are extremist on both sides goes without saying. But in the big picture, I'll take Mosad & its capabilities as one of the good guys out there.

If you think Israel gives a tiny rat's arse about anything but israel, and Mossad is a good guy or that Israel hasn't used terror, and disinformation as well as espionage and blackmail against the US you are deluded.

It isn't necessary to choose the lesser of two evils if such were the case. frick all the enemies of the US.
