Dershowitz: How Israel can survive Chuck Hagel

Alan Dershowitz, who supported President Obama before he didn't, discusses what Chuck Hagel's confirmation as Secretary of Defense means for Israel. 
Hagel’s nomination and confirmation now makes it more important than ever for President Obama to send an unambiguous message to the Iranian leadership that regardless of who heads the Defense Department, the president makes policy, and the American policy is clear: to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, even if this requires the use of force. Containment must be kept off the table, the military option must be kept on the table, and the mullahs must have no doubt about this policy.
President Obama’s upcoming visit to Israel will provide him a perfect opportunity to assure the Israeli people and their leaders that he still has their back and that he will never allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons – regardless of what his secretary of defense may believe in his heart.
But will Obama say that? It remains to be seen and heard.

why do you depict Reichsfuhrer Hagal as a Red Army officer instead of the more appropriate SS outfit?
