Obama's role during the Israeli elections was larger than reported, according to a pollster for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party.
"What was not well reported in the American media is that President Obama and his allies were playing in the election to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu," John McLaughlin, a Republican strategist, said in an interview on John Catsimatidis's "The Cats Roundtable" radio show broadcast Sunday on AM 970 in New York.
"There was money moving that included taxpayer U.S. dollars, through non-profit organizations. And there were various liberal groups in the United States that were raising millions to fund a campaign called V15 against Prime Minister Netanyahu," McLaughlin said.
He noted an effort to oust Netanyahu was guided by former Obama political operative Jeremy Bird and that V15, or Victory 15, ads hurt Netanyahu in the polls.
"The State Department people in the end of January, early February, expedited visas for [Israeli] Arab leaders to come to the United States to learn how to vote," McLaughlin said.
"There were people in the United States that were organizing them to vote in one party so they would help the left-of-center candidate, Herzog, that the Obama administration favored," he added.

From the comments:
“First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and nationalizes the Internet. He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican enemies. He abandons our allies, appeases tyrants, coddles adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast. Now hes coming for Israel.”
An informed political analyst who spoke from Israel on the Hannity show said Obama’s meddling backfired and boosted the vote for Netenyahu. The convincing win exceeding expectations was proof of this. He said many Israelis were angered with Obama’s interference, and mentioned there were Palestinians who voted for Netenhayu because of his vow to protect Israel from Iran. They want to live, too.
Of course, many people of Israel were incensed by Obama’s dirty tricks. Obama is so self-absorbed and encapsulated within his own ego that he can never put himself in the other guy’s shoes.
Not to mention that some of the Israeli Arabs are actually Christians who know that they have greater security under Israel than in some of the Islamic controlled areas.
The Republic has fallen. If you think differently you are only fooling yourself. The evidence is undeniable to any logical being.
Obama is incompetent so most of his meddling does backfire on him.
The big question is where is all the money used to fund Obama’s interference in the affairs of Middle Eastern countries and his transparent attempts to overthrow established governments replace them Muslim Brotherhood regimes coming from.
His work community organizing the Arab Spring revolutions in multiple countries including Israel were estimated to cost well in excess of 100 million dollars and actually well into the billions of dollars if you count the money spent waging the war to overthrow Gaddafi in Libya.
Where did all this money come from and who supplied it?
I'd like to see Bibi bring it into the U.N. for political interference by a foreign government.
Last time I knew , it is illegal.
Supposedly , OBummmers first election included foreign money, which is illegal here, too !
The use of U.S. taxpayer monies to boot !
I want an audit of the FED Govt. to see where this money came from , and end it!
Our state dept is just another slush fund for democrats and the obama administration to destroy America
The leaders generally do not try to overthrow one another and it is often quid pro quo.
Watch, someone is pissed about the Mid East, and Israel, and there will be a pay off some time, somewhere.
This is treasonous. Using taxpayer money to influence other sovereign nations elections, OPENLY? Major violation of many laws.
“Where did all this money come from and who supplied it?”
Seems I have heard on more than one occasion that Hillery’s State Dept. Had 5 billion dollars go missing.
Democrats are anti-Israel. Big time.
That is over the top intrusion from the U. S. government.

I read that and was absolutely floored that it made it through censors. Outstanding post.
Both Brit and Canadian media reported on 0.00 operatives involved in propaganda attacks against the Conservative governments of both GB and Canada. If Stephen Harper can use this to his advantage, he may be able to get re-elected.
The Canadian electorate leans to the left more than the US, but for most Canadian lefties define being Canadian as NOT being American. It will be a fine balancing act by Harper, but if he can push the fear/distrust of American interference in our election, the lefties, in their dislike of all things American, he may be able to capture some of that leftist vote, gaining at least a minority government. This could work out well, leading to an 0 for 5 for 0.00.
Can Bibi please release the real LFBC facts - through a third party?
