Background on Adelsons interests in Israel FIRST, We should all be very concerned !!

In a talk to an Israeli group in July, 2010, Adelson said he wished he had served in the Israeli Army rather than the U.S. military—and that he hoped his young son would come back to Israel and “be a sniper for the IDF,” a reference to the Israel Defense Forces. (YouTube video of speech)

“I am not Israeli. The uniform that I wore in the military, unfortunately, was not an Israeli uniform. It was an American uniform, although my wife was in the IDF and one of my daughters was in the IDF ... our two little boys, one of whom will be bar mitzvahed tomorrow, hopefully he’ll come back-- his hobby is shooting -- and he’ll come back and be a sniper for the IDF,” Adelson said at the event....“All we care about is being good Zionists, being good citizens of Israel, because even though I am not Israeli born, Israel is in my heart,” he said toward the end of his talk.


Here's the Article from WP re; Adelsons donations to influence our elections for Israels interests not the US interests.

From Gingrich about Adelsons donations to him “Sheldon Adelson is very deeply concerned about the survival of Israel and believes that the Iranians represent a mortal threat to Israel and the United States,” Gingrich said in an interview while on the campaign trail in Florida. “And he is deeply motivated by the question of having a commander-in-chief strong enough and willing to make sure the Iranians do not get nuclear weapons.”Asked if he had promised the casino mogul anything in exchange for the money to the super PAC, Gingrich replied: “I promised him that I would seek to defend the United States and the United States allies.”


Sheldon Adelson giving $10 million to Kochs

Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is giving $10 million to the 2012 election efforts of the Koch brothers, a Republican Party insider in Nevada confirms.

Charles and David Koch, billionaire libertarians in the oil industry, are involved in an array of outside groups aimed at defeating President Obama and other Democrats this November. They plan to spend about $400 million on the election.

The donation was first reported by Politico, which adds that Adelson made his pledge at a Koch donor convention in San Diego this past weekend — another sign of how powerful a force the brothers have become in the GOP.

The Kochs are behind American for Prosperity, a non-profit group has already spent millions of dollars into ads attacking Obama and other Democrats. They’re also reportedly behind Themis, a voter information database meant to rival Democrats’ Catalist. Koch influence and funds also trickle down to various anti-Obama groups.

Adelson’s donations confirms that he intends to be one of the very top players in this election. He has already given $10 million to Restore Our Future, a super PAC run by ex-aides and associates of former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

According to the Huffington Post, Adelson has also committeed at least $10 million to the Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, a pro-Republican group advised by Karl Rove, and $5 million each to two groups backing GOP House candidates.

A major supporter of former House speaker Newt Gingrich in the Republican primary, Adelson was the largest single donor to Romney’s super PAC. His politics are defined mostly by his support for conservative politics in Israel and his opposition to unions in the U.S.

He’s the eighth-richest man in the world, and his increasingly investment in Republican outside groups will only increase fear among Democrats that they will be swamped by GOP spending this cycle.
