    And the far right extremists will use the nomination of Hagel to sell "We're on our own,  better elect us as only the extreme right can protect you now".  

    It's already happening.

      The only threat to Netanyahu is from the righthttp://www.guardian.co.uk/... . It's not like the selection of a neoconservative for Defense Secretary of the US was going to drive the Israeli public into the arms of the center-left.

        is currently in a near vegetative state and barely even rises to the status of "shadow of its former self". The only real contestants in this year's election are the far-right Likud/Beitneiu party and the even further right Jewish Home party which claims a "God-given" right to all the territories of what they refer to as "Greater Israel".

          Myself, when I'm in a train car and there's someone obviously gone mad, I move away from them.
