    A Bigger Scandal: Illegal U.S. Funding of Sharon's Likud

    EIR's recent series of exposÚs tracing the dirty money behind Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and the Likud party, have helped fuel the roaring political scandal threatening to wreck what was once thought to be a certain Sharon win in the upcoming Jan. 28 election. Since the series began, Israeli and American journalists and researchers have provided revealing information concerning the Likud's most important foreign funders, which, upon investigation, has proven to be accurate.

    Israeli law has, since 1994, prohibited foreign donations to Israeli election campaigns. Yet tens of millions of dollars have continued to pour in from abroad, financing the radical-right Likud political apparatus which is driving the mideast and the world into religious-ethnic warfare. One prominent Israeli jurist told EIR, "Talking about illegal foreign money flows into Israeli elections is like talking about illegal booze in Chicago during Prohibition. Everybody does it, or you just don't survive."

    But in the case of the money propping up the Sharon regime, its legal prohibition is made more sinister by its sources, primarily in the United States. They include heirs of the Meyer Lansky/ Moe Dalitz mafia syndicate; Michael Milken's junk-bond "monsters," corporate predators, and looters; and the sponsors of terrorists such as Meyer Kahane and the Armageddon-theme racial and religious provocateurs.

    According to knowledgeable Israeli sources, the following names are at or near the top of the list of perpetrators, whose covert funding of the Likud has brought the Mideast to the brink of disaster.

    I hope liberal party wins in Israel to bring some sanity to this bloody war along with some thrashing of Arafat.. we need rational people without self interests there to stop this blood-shed...
    Saints are fine for Heaven, but they are hell on earth.


      There has never been a greater need for Israelis to reject the policies of the right wing extremist Likud party and vote in a more moderate Government into power, which is willing to negotiate a peaceful settlement with the Palestinians. As for 'Monster' Sharon and his corrupt Likud party, I hope peace loving Israelis condemn their policies on election day.


        I hope they all get drunk on illegal liquor and die. Or suffer massive hangovers. Works either way.


          Despite this the Israeli people may still re-elect war criminal Sharon into power, thereby proving that extremism is gathering ground in Israel.
