    What catches my eye are the links to ACPR, AEI, AFSI, American Crossroads, Birthers, Christian Zionists, CSP, Frank Gaffney, Hudson Institute, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, JINSA, Joseph Farah, Western Center for Journalism, Yitzhak Shapira and ZOA. Moskowitz occupies the innermost ring of the Israel lobby, along with a few dozen other billionaires.
