"A few weeks later, at a Hanukkah event welcoming American students visiting Israel as part of the Birthright program, which he helps fund, [Sheldon] Adelson, the multibillionaire casino magnate, declared that Gingrich had it right.
"Last weekend, Adelson made good on a commitment to begin pumping massive sums of cash into Gingrich's campaign -- or at least into a super PAC backing him."Clearly, rich people giving money to politicians is not a new development. In fact, it's one of the most common complaints on the Huffington Post and elsewhere. So I'm not sure why exactly the Huffington Post reporting staff decided this was an important enough story for their attention...besides the Israel angle. Which, as I'm sure they know by now, is the only angle that matters.
Shockingly, most of the comments were not anti-Israel, but anti-Gingrich and anti-PACs as I mentioned above. However, no Huffington Post article would be complete without at least one heavily favorited comment declaring that America is in thrall to
One last observation: In this thread you will find two militantly anti-Israel posters, skialethia and Seawolf56, declaring their unyielding support for Ron Paul, for example that "a vote for anyone except Ron Paul is a vote for Israel." And that's all I'm going to say about that.
