Hagel in and Israel will just have to like it or lump it. If you look at the set up it is designed to shut the Pro Israel lobby down from interfering and by putting people in prominent positions that will be more assertive with Israel re International Law.

If Israel refuses I would suggest the military aid will be put on hold for starters. Israel needs to start getting real. End the Occupation.
