Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

BuzzFeed misses the key point of so much US funding for Netanyahu campaign–the amount is so small!

This great piece today at BuzzFeed said: “As Netanyahu kicked off his campaign, records from Israel’s State Comptroller Office showed he had raised just over 1 million shekels (roughly $250,000), with more than 90% of it coming from donors in the United States.”

After having been the policy director for a (losing) US congressional campaign in upstate New York, ONE mere campaign, I was struck here by what Canadians say to us: How can you americans possibly spend and allow so much money in elections!

Team Net is raising it seems UNDER ONE MILLION dollars for a race for the top slot.

We alone spent more than $2 million for ONE single seat out of 435…. you do the math and draw the implications.
