1. This Was A Expected Move By b.H.o.
He is Anti-Israeli and pro-arab he is doing his Best To Stick It To Bibi. At Every turn b.H.o. will be a thorn in the side of the Jewish people until he leaves office. But before then get ready for the Worst Israeli/ U.S. relations in the two's history! b.H.o. will bring America to it's knee's with his Socialist Policy's and weaken the middle class Until No More! Defence Budget Cuts Sends A Message of weakness about U.S. Military to russia, china and arabs as well, b.H.o. is BAD for the U.S.A. and Israel. Bibi Stay The Coarse And Do Whats Right For The Stae Of Israel and it's people Your Constituents! Baruch Ha Shem
2. The signal
Mike Lumish ,   Oakland   (01.07.13)
that Obama is sending is that he has no intention whatsoever of actually preventing Iranian nukes. He is throwing Israel under the proverbial bus, but this should surprise no one.
Like I could give a damn.
4. True Nature
Zechariah   (01.07.13)
Obama has revealed he does not care much for the Jews and is in favour of universal humanitarianism.His big concern is an Israeli attack on Iran and wants someone to give the counter order.Nuclear proliferation action he welcomes it as long as the USA and Russia Are Supreme.The Holocaust means little to him and the Jews in the USA have miscalculated the Rich Democratic Liberals ought give most of their money to Israel to halve the Social Gap.
5. chuck hagel Said He Would'nt Eat Bagels
for his appointment is A Joke From b.H.o. To Bibi and you my Israeli Brother's and Sister's!
6. Boo Hoo We Don't Want You
chuck hagel!
7. No worries, Hagel will toe the line on Israel
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (01.07.13)
As they all inevitably do.
8. A calculated callous nominee Hagel
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (01.07.13)
just when you think obama might get the message, he reverts back to being that pro muslim a lot of Americans and our allies worry about. ( with good reason )
9. Finally we have a real PRESIDENT willing to engage the
Edithann ,   USA   (01.07.13)
enemy... Israel will be on the front pages for months now...Can't wait for the backlash when every American becomes an anti-Semite... TATA
10. Ynet, it's your responsibilty to make sure
Edithann ,   USA   (01.07.13)
your readers get all the feedback they can to make intelligent decisions...Are you up to it? TATA
11. A great day!
graczek ,   Maryland, USA   (01.07.13)
A great day! At last, in Sen. Hagel, we will have a member of the US Cabinet who will know how to strike the Zionist/Jewish Lobby a telling body blow, perhaps one from which it can never recover. It is the first step toward scraping "Israel" off America's back and reversing the political crime of May 1948. Congratulations, Chuck!
12. Should Israel Support the Taliban?
Noah Lev ,   LosAngelesUSA   (01.07.13)
Those in the know, can prove Hussein Obama was born in Mombasa, NOT Hawaii, a clever coverup. To see through a person, see his friends. He was raised by Rev Wright...nuf said. If McCain/Romney went 20 yrs to a David Duke would we think? Obama, from the Chicago school, had leftist Jews as his mentors...Emanual and Axelrod (check their qualifications and backgrounds). He picked a maverick Republvcian, sensing the weaknesses in the party. Why him? The man is an anti-Semite through and through from a state with few Jews...and would enjoy seeing Israel have its feathers plucked. Talk to Iran? Why not Al Qaeda or the Taliban? We drone them remember. Jewish leftists will, like sheep, come to his defense, while Jewish boys and girls in Israel duck Kassams and Fajrs. How would the USA feel if Israel supporterd theTaliban and No Korea? This is forcing Israel to prepare for the end game..using its500 nukes, first on Tehran.
13. If you're on Twitter
Chaya ,   Bat Yam   (01.07.13)
Use the hashtag #blockhagel - now the job begins to keep him from being confimed. And if you're in the U.S. contact your Senator and tell him/her to block his confirmation.
14. Obama is a dictator
Rabbi Yakov Lazaros ,   USA   (01.07.13)
The Republicans dont like Hagel Neither do the Democrats. Hagel was notorious for being the most anti-Israel in the US senate. Obama is itching for a fight to show his power and he will get one. I hope Obama gets impeached.
15. To all talk backers...
Sheik rattle & roll ,   USA   (01.07.13)
Hagel needs to be PRO-AMERICAN nothing more and nothing less. America needs to take care of America and only America. If you are a grateful friend you shouldn't care who we nominate, elect and or appoint. Americans don't care who is the secretary of defense of Israel or who the PM is and that's the way it should be. Israel currently has a PM in office that despises our current president and I and most other Americans don't care because at the end of the day life goes on.
16. 15. It is NOT good for us (Americans) to be weak with
American   (01.07.13)
our enemies and treat our friends like crap. It is a very small world today and our alliances and international smarts are of HUGE importance.
17. This is the wiost possible choice
Reuven   (01.07.13)
for Defense Secretary. Even high-ranking U.S. military officers realize this. Israsl is now on its own and should attack Iran's nuke program without delay. And Israel must bec ome self-sufficient in the manufacture of top quality weapons.
18. #15
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (01.07.13)
That would be fine if America would mind it's own business. Since we have a habit of telling other people how to run their countries that gives Israel and others good reason to question our leaders.
19. #14
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (01.07.13)
Unfortunately Obama is untouchable. There is video of him telling people he was born in Kenya and a Muslim. The proof is there but it is ignored. The Clintons had Janet Reno to protect them. I don't know who is protecting Obama but it is obvious by now that he can do anything with impunity and nothing will happen.
20. A moron nominates a moron...
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.07.13)
That was expected !
21. #15 Schmuck Rattle And Roll USA
SPEAK FOR YOURSELF! yella gochba
22. I'm happy
Walter ,   Germany   (01.07.13)
Hagel is an atlantican. He will strengthen the NATO. He will do whatever is necessary to defend Turkey against Syria or other enemies. Dear Mr. Hagel, a sincere "willkommen" from Germany!
23. USisraili policy not individualistic but parasitic symbiosis
Tayfun_Turkey ,   Istanbul   (01.07.13)
24. 23. ur comment expresses ur hatred of Jews
nothing more and nothing less.
25. Obama impetuous behaviour
Kene ufondu ,   Nigeria   (01.08.13)
Israel should realize that Obama is anti-Israel president. Obama is an Arab in American clothing. Israel should distance themself from Obama because Obama is no friend of Jews. Obama is just pretending to be friend of Israel. Action speaks louder than words.
26. Obama's nomination policy makes me really sad!
Jouko ,   Finland   (01.08.13)
27. #20 A moron?
Robert ,   Australia   (01.08.13)
If you are able to justify that idiotic statement let's see you try. It's very evident that YOU are the moron here.
28. Hagel Nomination
ltrail ,   United States   (01.09.13)
I wrote my Comment herein yesterday but apparently did not make the page. Hagel is Obama's man, therefore, Hagel is going to toe the line. I wrote of his anti-Israel stance in the Comment. Oh well.
