New York Times reports that a cluster of activist Democrats — most of them young, most of them cruising toward House seats this fall — has dared to breach what has been an almost inviolable orthodoxy in both political parties, strong support for Israel, raising the specter of a crack in the Democratic Party that Republicans could use to attract Jewish supporters.
Israel supporter Sheldon Adelson donated $30 million to a top Republican PAC. This may be the single largest campaign donation in U.S. history. Adelson influenced Trump to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and end the Iran nuclear agreements.
Adelson-supported appointees include Nikki Haley, Mike Pompeo, & John Bolton.
Adelson was instrumental in removing Tillerson and McMaster, due to their support for the Iran agreement.
