“I’m not israeli, the uniform that I wore in the military UNFORTUNATELY was not an israeli uniform, it was an American uniform.” -Sheldon Adelson
“All we care about is being good Zionists, good Israelis..” -Sheldon Adelson
The 3rd richest American, he gave over 10 million dollars of his own money to support Gingrich’s campaign for the Republican nomination which saved Gingrich’s campaign according to the NY Times. He declared that he stands behind Gingrich all the way due to his unconditional support, some would say subservience, to Israel.
In return Newt called the Palestinians an “invented people” and promised to send CIA snipers in to fight Israel’s wars for them.
In this speech to an Israeli audience supporting the Israeli newspaper that he owns, Sheldon declares his allegiance to Israel and gets laughs when he boasts that his son will become a sniper and operate American drones to hunt Palestinian civilians.
If he had said this about any other country Fox News and its lackeys would be calling him a traitor and asking him to give up his American citizenship. Only in this case, Sheldon is a personal friend of Rupert Murdoch and was allowed to use Fox News’s “fair and balanced” platform for his Israeli paper as a personal gift.
