The Adelsons’ big late gifts to Republicans — up to $100 million — are gaining scrutiny. What’s their agenda? Crush the prospect of a Palestinian state. Get the U.S. to attack Iran. So far they’re batting .500.
Why is Trump lying down for Israeli annexation of West Bank even as global chorus condemns it? He needs what could be $200 million from Sheldon and Miriam Adelson for election. He has delivered for the largest Republican donors again and again, from moving embassy, to tearing up Iran deal, to attacking the ICC.
Trump donor Miriam Adelson jumps into the war between good Jews and bad Jews: ‘Too many… Jews see anti-Israel activism as an express-ticket to assimilation’
Trump has a political calculation in embracing Netanyahu’s annexation of the West Bank. He wants to get 40 percent of the Jewish vote, as Reagan did in 1980. And in a warning to Democrats, Haim Saban, Hillary’s big supporter, said he likes the plan.
Donald Trump has a political motive to release his unbalanced “peace plan”: His biggest donors the Adelsons want it out before anyone else gets into the White House. But only Dan Raviv of Israeli broadcaster i24 News will say so.
Donald Trump says his chief negotiator for Israel/Palestine, Jared Kushner, “loves” Israel but some American Jews don’t love Israel enough and Democratic radicals want to “bully” Israel. He spoke before largest donors Sheldon and Miriam Adelson in Florida Saturday night at the Israeli American Council.
A ‘New York Times’ analysis of the Israeli government’s refusal to allow two American congresswomen to visit the West Bank embraces a central claim of the Israel lobby, that bipartisan support for Israel is critical to US national security, and leaves out Trump’s largest donors, the Adelsons, for whom Israel is the overriding issue.
Miriam Adelson writes in the Israeli newspaper she publishes that Donald Trump is on the side of justice and the Bible should include a “Book of Trump.” What’s her angle? Kathryn Shihada says she is selling Trump as a prophet to American Jews and scripting Trump’s tweets for the occasion of Israeli annexation of the West Bank.
The media can’t talk about Sheldon Adelson when discussing the US confrontation with Iran over nukes, though he’s only Trump’s biggest donor, and John Bolton’s protector, and he was at White House officials’ side when they took part in a settlers’ bash in occupied Jerusalem.
