Long-time peacenik and #1 Dem donor Haim Saban ticked off at 0bama administration

We reported earlier on the feeling of Jewish donors to the Deemocrat [sic] party that they’ve been had, as well as on Rahm Emanuel’s furious damage control effort. Via Israel Matzav, the Jerusalem Post points out that the Insane Clown Posse0bama administration really managed to tick off their single biggest donor, Egyptian-born Jewish media mogul Haim Saban (a longtime sugar daddy of the Labor Party in Israel, BTW):

“To say I don’t sleep easily with the current administration’s relationship to Israel would be an understatement,” Saban told Channel 10’s reporter at an LA Gala dinner starring [Israeli prog-rock/world fusion musician] Idan Raichel and former ambassador John Bolton organized by the Israeli Leadership Council on Wednesday night.

“I’m an American now, so I don’t say everything I think, like I might have once,” he added in the footage aired by Channel 10 Thursday. Saban said he had made his concerns known to both Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, and that Emanuel had characterized himself as more hawkish than 50% of Israelis.

Saban doubted an opinion poll would bear out this estimate.

Saban stressed Obama and his administration were not, as some Israelis think, “anti-Israel.”

“Obama wants to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians, the same thing we want,” Saban said, just the way he was going about it was not to the taste of many in Israel. “They are leftists, really left leftists, so far to the left there’s not much space left between them and the wall,” he said of the Obama administration.

Remember Clark’s Third Law: “Any sufficiently advanced degree of incompetence is functionally indistinguishable from malice.”
