Guardian profile of Sheldon Adelson is straightforward about his potential influence on policy:
He is not shy about declaring his wealth. “You know,” he reportedly bragged to George W Bush, when he was president in 2008, “I am the richest Jew in the world.”
If few knew that then, many know now. Adelson has burst onto the international stage by becoming, as one observer noted, “sugar daddy” to zionist and conservative causes.
…Consciously or not, at a private fundraiser Romney echoed Adelson’s views when he appeared to dismiss a two-state solution and said the Palestinians had no interest in peace.
