Skip to comments.Obama Backs Campaign to Defeat Netanyahu in Israeli Elections

Caroline Glick picked up on one article the Israeli left-wing paper Haaretz didnt bother translating into English that details Obamas involvement in the upcoming Israeli elections. A summary of the article is provided by IMRA (Independent Media Review & Analysis):
Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today [January 26] that the foreign funded organization, One Voice, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahus national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections.
One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaigns national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building.
V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party rather just not Bibi. As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to Israels campaign finance laws.
Glick commented via Facebook:
Obama wont meet Benjamin Netanyahu בנימין נתניהו in Washington when he addresses the Joint Houses of Congress in March because of Netanyahus visits proximity to the Israeli elections. And Obama, of course believes in protocol and propriety which is why he wont get involved. No, hes not getting involved at all. Hes just sending his 2012 field campaign manager to Israel to run a campaign to defeat Netanyahu. Thats all. No interference whatsoever.
The Israeli Left adores touting Netanyahus interference in American elections, specifically his expression of support for Mitt Romney in the 2012 campaign. When it comes to Israeli left-wing politics, there are simply things you just dont do when you represent the center-right. It should come as no surprise then that Haaretz, known on this side of the globe for its freakish ability to generate anonymous White House sources that love talking about how much Obama hates Bibi (a shared talent among the Left) would conveniently forget to translate this little news item for their English-reading audience.
I'm no rocket scientist, but doesn't this break several American laws?
Laws...are such silly, obsolete concepts, you know.
There is no Law in the US for the EXEMPT pRes_ _ent,
the EXEMPT SCOTUS, or the EXEMPT Congress.
They are above all others below them whom they scorn
and manipulate and tax and now will kill by ObamaCARE.
“There will be a price.”
Now can we start the impeachment process.
This could really backfire on Zero.
and this is not colonization? So they attack Israeli settlements but then make Israel their own little home... with Israelies as cannon fodder in case it does not work out for them...
Let’s see what Lord Fouls excuse for not being able to meet with Netanyahu? Something about influencing some election?
Is this a set up for the antichrist to walk on Temple Mount?
Is it the ?Hatch? act that prevents meddling in elections??
Obama Campaign Team Arrives in Israelto Defeat Netanyahu in March Elections
So it WAS VJ’s ‘high price to pay’ flying monkeys.
This won’t even rate a mention on the overnight news...
“This could really backfire on Zero.”
But WHO will prosecute him ?? Impeach him ?? Whatever ??
Thank You again Congress.
Bibi is the only true leader in the West.
And the guy in Egypt...he understands the current geopolitical realities.
Very few, though.
Why do they call him “Bibi”?
That must be why Obama was so irritated the Republicans invited Netanyahu to speak there this very week, and didn’t tell him ahead of time.
So Netanyahu it seems has the Republicans votes, his opponents have democrats. Not literally of course, because Israelis don’t get votes from Americans.
I’m not saying if any of this is legal. I’m just saying how it seems out here in flyover country.
We theorized it was David Axelrod a while back.
Obama cares about laws and protocol when they work for him... when they don't he discards them. Isn't that a criminal mindset?
O'Dinga? Zelaya? among many others...
Liberals don’t like foreigners interfering with their elections here but they sure don’t mind interfering with foreign elections. Heck JFK went as far as having elected allies assassinated. And didn’t Klinton organize Bibi’s last defeat?
Maybe, but Clinton in ‘96 and Bush I in ‘92 did about the same thing in Israel.
