1. Well, what do you expect?
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.24.12)
The American people are overwhelmingly pro-Israel and equally overwhelmingly anti-Iran. The president works for the American people. It's high time he started paying attention to what the American people want.
2. Goodbye Charlie
bad Assed Jew   (12.24.12)
O needs some smoothing sailing, uncontested, non abrasive nominee.
3. Hagel's nomination
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Zion, Zion   (12.24.12)
the only reason hagel would be nominated for the position of secretary of defence is his virrulent anti-israel positions which are frankly antisemitic. hagel has no special qualificationns for the job. obama once again shows his true colours with this prospective nomination.
4. # 1
Double act ,   Dimona,Israel.   (12.24.12)
You are talking as an American of course.
5. Israel is not the issue
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (12.24.12)
Rethinking Hagel's nomination has nothing to do with his attitude to a foreign country like Israel. It has to do with Hagel's disgusting attitude to the blood of 241 USMC peacekeepers murdered by Hezbolla.
6. that's what is so ncie about democracy
Mira ,   Vienna   (12.24.12)
Even the "Man of the Year" has to bow to the will of the people and their representatives!
7. #6 mira, nice way to say it, chapeau.!!
miriam ,   eilat   (12.24.12)
8. Chuck should apply for Gaza Sec of Defense Job
Alan ,   SA   (12.24.12)
He would be a great candidate!
9. Americans overwhelmingly pro-Israel
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (12.24.12)
This is such a delusional statement no sane person would support; We have sympathy in many quarters, as well as an ever growing Muslim block, expertly easing itself into the sphere of influence The President as this one is surely seen to do , is working his own agenda, miles away from what
10. "Jewish Lobby" a dirty word?
Steven Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (12.24.12)
11. To: No. 4
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.24.12)
Duh. Did it take you a very long time to figure that one out?
12. #1 The American people want....
Robert ,   Australia   (12.25.12)
..... Obama. Evidenced by his landslide victory over your idol, Romney.
13. To: No. 12
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.25.12)
And the American people also overwhelmingly elected a very conservative Congress that is overwhelmingly pro-Israel. Oh -- by the way -- not sure if you know this, but the American Congress controls the purse strings, and they will thwart Obama at every turn. His victory in the presidential election will prove to be very frustrating.
