Two items about the lobby that dare not speak its name. Ynet reports that Stevie Wonder will perform at the annual Friends of the IDF gala in Los Angeles. Note that media mogul Haim Saban, who is also a giant donor of the Democratic Party, is hosting:
The event will be hosted by Cheryl and Haim Saban and is expected to be attended by more than 1,000 members of the Los Angeles Jewish community. The gala is considered one of the organization’s flagship events and is known to raise millions of dollars.
Oh and don’t forget that name Saban/Democratic Party. From Florida, McClatchy reports on a bipartisan gather in support of Israel:
Local and national power-brokers joined hundreds of Israel’s supporters Sunday night in North Miami Beach at a rally sponsored by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation in the wake of last week’s Gaza cease-fire and the ongoing turmoil in Egypt.
It was a bipartisan collection of dignitaries at the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center: U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.; U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Miami; U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston and chair of the Democratic National Committee; and U.S. Reps. Frederica Wilson and Joe Garcia, both Miami-Dade Democrats.
