Raimondo: Adelson, Gingrich, and the Selling of America
 
“That someone pursuing the agenda of a foreign country can hide behind some benign-sounding PAC and pour unlimited amounts of anonymous cash into our elections represents a real threat to our national security – and ought to make one think twice about our current campaign finance laws. Furthermore, it is a national disgrace that Miriam Adels…on – who has not renounced her Israeli citizenship – can write a $5 million check and hand it to a candidate who is beating the war drums day and night on Israel’s behalf. Political contributions from foreign sources are illegal, and that’s the way it ought to be: but what about dual citizens? Should they be allowed to influence the American political process in favor of their other allegiance – and, while we’re on the subject, why do we allow dual citizenship, anyway?”
Mrs. Adelson may possess dual citizenship, but it is apparent that the Adelsons’ loyalty is completely singular.

Americans make sacrifices while Israel gets more

Following received earlier today from General (Ret) James David who is mentioned on the cover of the third edition of former Republican Congressman Paul Findley’s ‘They Dare to Speak Out’ book about the power/influence of the pro-Israel lobby (AIPAC and similar) on the US political system and media:

This is in addition to the $3.2 billion in annual foreign aid.  These loan guarantees were due to run out this year but, as it happens all the time, the money line just never ends, even while the American people must make sacrifices.

U.S. to grant three-year extension of loan guarantees to Israel

Current balance of loan guarantees Israel can take is $3.8 billion; global credit agencies view the gurantees as a ‘safety net’ for the Israeli economy.

By Barak Ravid Tags: Israel US Barack Obama

 
 
 The U.S. government has informed Israel that it will recommend that Congress approve a three-year extension of loan guarantees to Israel, worth $3.8 billion. The announcement came after several months of worry in Israel that the loan guarantees would not be extended, despite Israel’s request.

Deputy U.S. Secretary of State Thomas Nides and Deputy U.S. Treasury Secretary Neil Wolin announced the American decision at a meeting with Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Monday. According to a senior U.S. official, the two emphasized to Ayalon that the recommendation to extend the guarantees through September 2015 would receive wide support from both parties in Congress and would be approved without any problems in the near future.

Danny Ayalon, Thomas Nides Deputy FM Danny Ayalon and Deputy U.S. Secretary of State Thomas Nides
 
 

“The U.S. is a true friend and ally of Israel,” Ayalon said. “The partnership between the two countries is a natural one. Extending the loan guarantees strengthens the international position of the Israeli economy and will allow the government to continue to raise funds at lower costs.”

A senior Foreign Ministry official in Jerusalem said that Israel’s ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren filed the official request for the extension of the loan guarantees with the State Department in September 2011. However, the Israel request was not included in the U.S. budget that was approved at the end of last year.

The deadline for the implementation of the agreement is September 30, 2012. This created serious concern in Israel that the U.S. government was not interested in extending the loan guarantees past that date. The Foreign Ministry also feared that the need for separate legislation on Israel’s loan guarantees would be met with technical and political difficulties that would not allow for the passage of the law.

Before the arrival of the two American officials in Israel, the Foreign Ministry prepared for a tough conversation and a crisis. However, the two American officials were surprised and quickly clarified that the U.S. government completely supported the extension of the loan guarantees and planned to recommend the extension to Congress.

The loan guarantees agreement between the U.S. and Israel began in 2003, when Benjamin Netanyahu was Finance Minister. At the time, Israel found itself in an economic recession and U.S. loan guarantees were needed in order to raise funds abroad at low interest rates. The scope of the original agreement was $9 billion and Israel last raised money through it in 2004.

The agreement included a clause that the U.S. would deduct the amount of Israel’s expenses and investments in settlements over the Green Line. Today, the balance of loan guarantees Israel can take, before offsets, is $3.8 billion.

According to a senior Foreign Ministry official, since 2005 Israel has raised needed funds in the capital market without using the loan guarantees, but the loan guarantees have importance to global credit agencies, who view the loan guarantees as a “safety net” for the Israeli economy.

“We consider the loan guarantees as preparation for a rainy day,” the senior official said. “This is a safety net for war, natural disaster and economic crisis, which allows Israel to maintain economic stability in unstable surroundings.”

Gingrich’s Major Backer Arch-Zionist Sheldon Adelson

From: Stephen Sniegoski
Subject: Gingrich’s Major Backer Arch-Zionist Sheldon Adelson

Friends,

This is my recent piece on Gingrich and Adelson. After Gingrich’s major victory in South Carolina, this connection is very significant, but the mainstream media barely touches on the Israel aspect.

Gingrich’s Major Backer Arch-Zionist Sheldon Adelson

Gingrich’s faltering presidential campaign was completely resuscitated by a 5 million donation from Las Vegas casino king and super-Zionist  Sheldon Adelson.  (According to Wikipedia, Adelson is currently the 8th wealthiest American and 16th wealthiest person in the world, with a net worth of $23.3 billion.) Rising from the ashes, Gingrich now has won the South Carolina primary and has a  decent  chance of becoming the Republican presidential nominee.

Adelson has been the major backer of Gingrich for some time. A Washington Post  article on  the Adelson-Gingrich connection (though kept out of the first section of the paper) states:  “Perhaps no other major presidential candidate in recent times has had his fortunes based so squarely on the contributions of a single donor, as Gingrich has on Adelson, who has spent millions in support of Gingrich and his causes over the past five years.” 

http://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/sheldon-adelson-and-newt-gingrich-one-gained-clout-from-friendship-the-other-funding/2012/01/11/gIQACvSrBQ_story.html

http://wapo.st/wMIVoA

As the Washington Post article points out, Adelson and his Israeli-born wife, Miriam, have spent time and money lobbying  for a bill to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Gingrich has promised that his first executive order as president would be the embassy move.

Adelson is an ardent Zionist. Since 2007 the Adelson Family Foundation has made contributions totaling $100 million to Birthright Israel, which finances Jewish youth trips to Israel, Adelson is such a hard-line Zionist that he even stopped supporting  AIPAC when it appeared to support a 2007 peace initiative championed by Olmert, President Bush, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/01/18/is-gingrich-s-hard-line-on-palestine-paid-for-by-sheldon-adelson.html

http://bit.ly/wirOwN

In 2009, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), which is a hard-line Zionist group that wants Israel to retain the occupied territories and expand the Jewish settlements,  presented  Adelson its most distinguished and historic award, the Theodor Herzl Gold Medallion for outstanding achievement in Zionism.  His wife received the Louis D. Brandeis Award. The couple now have  their names on one of ZOA’s major awards, the Dr. Miriam & Sheldon Adelson Defender of Israel Award.

Adelson is intimately involved in Israeli politics. Since 2007, Adelson has owned a daily newspaper in Israel  called Israel Hayom, which distributed free of charge, has the largest circulation of any newspaper in the country.  The newspaper is  ultra-supportive of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,  to whom Adelson is a close ideological ally and personal friend.  The newspaper also has been doing much to promote Gingrich. 

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/11/sheldon-adelson-newt-gingrich-israel_n_1195867.html

http://huff.to/zmUtVr

It should be recalled  that Gingrich was so extreme as to recently say that the Palestinians are an “invented people.”  Shortly thereafter, Adelson said that Gingrich had been completely correct. In an address at a Hanukkah celebration in Israel for hundreds of youths visiting that country as part of the Taglit Birthright (Birthright Israel) program (which Adelson funds), Adelson stated: “Read the history of those who call themselves Palestinians, and you will hear why [Newt] Gingrich said recently that the Palestinians are an invented people. There are a number of Palestinians who will recognize the truth of this statement.”  He appealed to  the Jewish youths to “speak in support of Israel” when they returned to their countries.

http://bit.ly/sorRAl

When  on the NBC show Rock Center,   Ted Koppel asked Gingrich about the reason for Adelson’s support, Gingrich was quite frank: “He knows I’m very pro Israel. That’s the central value of his life. I mean, he’s very worried that Israel is going to not survive.”

http://mondoweiss.net/2012/01/gingrich-says-his-backers-central-value-is-israel-and-nbc-has-no-more-to-say-on-the-subject.html 

http://bit.ly/A0yzoe

If  Israel is the “central value” of Adelson’s life (which certainly appears to be true), he is one Jewish American who cannot be accused of having a “dual loyalty.”  His loyalty is truly singular!

Like most American conservatives, Gingrich purports  to identify with the wisdom of the Founding Fathers, but catering to a person with a view such as Adelson’s puts Gingrich in a position completely  opposite to that of George Washington, who, in his Farewell Address of 1796, warned Americans of the grave danger of those who had a  “passionate attachment” to a foreign country.

While the mainstream media has focused on the negative effects  of big money super pacs, and shows no particular fondness for Gingrich, it makes little reference to his major patron’s identification with Israel. In fact, Rachel Maddow and Michael Isikoff even managed to offer a critical presentation of Adelson’s financing of Gingrich without any reference to Israel.

http://mondoweiss.net/2012/01/israel-is-the-elephant-in-the-studio-during-msnbc-discussion-of-adelsons-giving.html

http://bit.ly/w387Az

Even the  Washington Post’s article on Adelson was not in the major, news section of the paper. And there was no follow up on the NBC program  to Gringrich’s response about his major patron’s fundamental concern being Israel—“the central value of his life.”  The fact of the matter is that the impact of the Israel lobby on American politics is a taboo issue in the United States mainstream. 

When  the Republicans presidential candidates (Ron Paul being the exception)  have talked about foreign policy, it often seems that they are running for the top spot in the Israeli Likud Party, rather than President of the United States of America.   Consequently, it is difficult for any candidate to outdo his competitors.  However, Sheldon Adelson’s financial backing of Gingrich would seem to indicate that he is the best candidate from the standpoint of the Israeli Right. And Gingrich might go a little farther than his competitors since he even suggests clemency for Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard.

http://www.haaretz.com/news/u-s-elections-2012/newt-gingrich-u-s-should-consider-clemency-for-jonathan-pollard-1.400408

http://bit.ly/w1bHiw

Adelson’s money enabled Gingrich to win South Carolina, and Adelson could put much more into Gingrich’s campaign.  With such  financial support, Gingrich might be able to gain the Republican presidential nomination, but it would seem that he has too much baggage to actually defeat Obama, at least this is the conventional wisdom–though stranger things have happened. Nonetheless, having  pro-Israel Republican candidates led by Gingrich  pushes Obama in a more pro-Israel direction, which entails a harder US line toward Iran.  No matter what happens in the US presidential election, therefore, US Middle East policy will be improved from the Likudnik perspective. And this is Sheldon Adelson’s objective.

Best,

Stephen Sniegoski

Publisher of Atlanta Jewish Times Suggests that Mossad Assassinate Obama and US Mainstream Ignores ItIn order to protect Israel from a future Iranian threat, the publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times posited the assassination of Obama and his replacement by VP Biden who would then “forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.”… Tellingly, the publisher writes that such an assassination is actually being considered by Israel. “If have thought of this Tom-Clancy-type scenario, don’t you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel’s most inner circles?”It is highly interesting that an article suggesting the assassination of the President of the US has been barely mentioned in the US mainstream media. There is no doubt that the mainstream media and Democrats would be screaming to high heavens if an anti-Obama gentile suggested a right-wing assassination of the President. In fact, in this hypothetical latter case, it is also likely that local, state, and federal law officials would become involved.

It is like the old philosophical question: “If a tree falls in the woods and there’s no one around to hear it, does it make a sound?” Certainly, in regard to anything in the least way negative about Israel, the mainstream media makes every effort to muffle the sound.

Atlanta Jewish Times owner says sorry for Obama ‘hit’ column

Andrew Adler says he deeply regrets writing a column suggesting Mossad agents should consider ‘a hit’ on the president if he fails to support Israel

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/jan/20/newspaper-owner-sorry-obama-hit-column

The owner of a Jewish newspaper in Atlanta has said he deeply regrets writing a column suggesting that Israel consider “a hit” on Barack Obama if he stands in the way of the Jewish state defending itself.

Andrew Adler told the Guardian he wrote the column in the weekly Atlanta Jewish Times “to get a reaction” from the paper’s readers.

“The headline for the column was: ‘What would you do?’ That’s what I wanted to see,” he said. “It’s got like a Dr Phil reaction: what were you thinking? I feel really bad it did that.”

The column, first brought to light by Gawker, asks readers to imagine that they are the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, confronting the threat posed by Hezbollah and Iran’s nuclear programme while also under pressure from a US president with an “Alice in Wonderland” belief in diplomacy over force.

Adler lays out what he says are the three options available to Netanyahu: attack Hezbollah and Hamas; defy the US – which is willing to let “Israel take a lethal bullet” – by striking against Iran’s nuclear facilities; or a third option.

“Three, give the go-ahead for US-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice-president to take his place, and forcefully dictate that the United States‘ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies,” Adler wrote in a column that appeared in print by not online.

“Yes, you read “three” correctly. Order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel’s existence. Think about it. If I have thought of this Tom Clancy-type scenario, don’t you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel’s most inner circles?”

Adler went on to ask: “How far would you go to save a nation comprised of 7 million lives – Jews, Christians and Arabs alike? You have got to believe, like I do, that all options are on the table.”

Adler said he understood why readers might interpret his writing as suggesting that Israel is seriously considering assassinating the US president but that is not what he meant.

“No, no, no. It’s unfathomable, unthinkable,” he said, adding: “I’m definitely pro-Israel to the max.”

Adler said he intends to repudiate the column in the next edition of the paper.
“I’ve put my pen in my mouth,” he said. “I’m writing a retraction to the column.”

The Atlanta Jewish Times was founded in 1925 as the Southern Israelite. Adler bought the paper three years ago. It has a circulation of several thousand copies a week.
