The List of Republican False Friends of Israel

I'm not terribly shocked that the Senate voted to end debate on the Hagel nomination given the Democratic majority (where even pro-Israel Senators have shown they are more loyal to their party than to their pro-Israel beliefs) and that only a few Republicans needed to shift for the vote to get over 60.  But what I am shocked about is the margin of 71-27 with a full 18 GOP Senators voting to end debate.  Did we get any more information on his financial dealings or any explanation of his anti-Israel comments over the last few years?  These 18 Republican Senators voted to end debate for no reason whatsoever, allowing the most anti-semitic, anti-Israel Secretary of Defense in decades to gain office.  Anyway, here is the full roll of the vote with Republican traitors in bold.  Let's get those primary challengers ready!:
