For many, taking aim at the pro-Israel lobby this week embodies what the Democratic front-runner stands for – and highlights why Israel partisans are worried about him. Israel’s UN ambassador, speaking to the AIPAC convention on March 1st, called Sanders an ‘ignorant fool’ and said: “We don’t want him in Israel.”
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.
