Israel was a country that I had and have deep roots with.
My dad worked for the State of Israel for 18 years.
My paternal grandmother lived and is buried there.
The first fundraiser that I ever had chaired as an adult was for Israel.
Most of the family I have on Earth live there.
So, you can understand how difficult this post is for me to write.
Israel is run by an oligarch. Benjamin Netanyahu belongs in jail. He is a blight on the Jewish people. He has created a country in His image filled with people who are willing to skirt the law for their own benefit. A country willing to risk dealing with Patrick series just in case there is some money to be made. He is the Donald Trump of Israel. So this story about a company that does dirty tricks, a la Cambridge Analytica, is not surprising. If it had not happened I would have been surprised.
There is a group of American evangelicals and believes that Israel must be destroyed and I war with the Arab states in order for the Rapture to begin. This is superstitious mumbo jumbo but they truly believe this. Benjamin Netanyahu and his cohorts play into their hands and it disgusts me.
