According to Haaretz, President Obama’s 2012 campaign field director has been selected to be a part of a “five-man Obama team” that will run a campaign against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
As Caroline Glick–Israeli journalist and Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center–notes, the far-left Israeli news outlet “for whatever reason… chose not to translate this article in its English edition.” Fortunately, Independent Media Review and Analysis did:
Foreign Funding Bankrolls Anti-Netanyahu Campaign – Flies in 5-Man Obama Team
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 26 January 2015
Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today that the foreign funded organization, “One Voice”, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections.
One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign’s national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building.
V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party – rather “just not Bibi”. As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to Israel’s campaign finance laws.
The revelation, PJMedia observes, stands in direct contrast with President Obama’s declaration in his State of the Union that he has no more campaigns to run:
‘No more campaigns to run’ in America, at least.
