The writer is speaking how could a senior Israeli official interfere in the American elections and no one cares about him. He is speculating if an American official interfered in Israeli elections, what would happen?
It was a quite a surprise to read in the news that Ehud Barak, the former Israeli Prime Minister, had helped the disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein find an Israeli security firm to assist him in hunting down the women accusing him of sexual assault and rape, as well to intimidate journalists from publishing the accusers' stories. The Israeli firm involved was Black Cube, and it is run by ex Mossad agents.
Shortly after, Weinstein invited the head of Black Cube, as well as Ehud Barak, to one of Hillary Clinton's fundraising events the last presidential election. My research of the two Israeli guests indicates that they were not US citizens, nor do they reside in the US.
Since it is unlawful under US law for a foreign national to make a donation of money or any other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State or local election, that begs the question, why were neither of these two Israelis nor Hillary Clinton's campaign questioned? Why has no one accused Israel of interfering in our elections?
Last June, Oliver Stone addressed the very same subject on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert by eloquently stating, "Israel had far more involvement in the US election than Russia." Nevertheless, US lawmakers summoned only representative of Facebook, Twitter and Google and demanded to know why they allowed Russians to run paid political ads during the last Presidential election. Neither the US media nor US lawmakers blasted Israel for its election meddling.
Keep in mind, attending a fund raiser for Clinton by former Israeli prime minister is equivalent to former US president Jimmy Carter flying to Israel and endorse the opponent of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Like many patriotic Americans citizens, I am also sick and tired of reading about the “Russian collusion” and the “Russian interference.” Hey, how about meddling Israeli election?!
