Thread: Sheldon Adelson on Trump - Why Not?

    Default Sheldon Adelson on Trump - Why Not?

    http://www.timesofisrael.com/sheldon...medium=twitter

    Adelson was asked if he could support Trump, the front-runner among Republican presidential candidates, as his candidacy has raised concerns among politically conservative Jews because of his professions of neutrality on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and his broadsides against Muslims, Mexicans and others.

    “Why not?” replied Adelson, who had been considering whether to back Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, or Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. Rubio subsequently quit the race this week after losing in his home state to Trump.

    “Trump is a businessman,” Adelson said at the February 27 event. “I’m a businessman. He employs many people.”

    Sheldon was against Ron Paul for being anti-Semitic. (sic).

    Obviously. But who says this is the case here?

    I don't think that Adelson would necessarily have to buy Trump, it's more that the two will probably make nice with each other and compromise on some things, one of them likely being Israel. Do keep in mind that Trump has boat-loads of connections to Jewish interests (you don't survive in Trump's profession in New York City without them) and he was probably pandering to those who are skeptical of Israel.

    Israel is not on the top of my priority list, though the atrocious behavior they've exhibited towards Palestine and Syria is a matter of note and should be hashed out publicly against the wishes of Zionist demagogues. If Trump pivots and goes Neocon with his foreign policy, I'll count it as among the many reasons that I don't plan to vote for him. On the other hand, if he takes a more realistic approach to foreign policy and gets Adelson to back off, I'm not going to complain.

    If you're a Christian and not worshiping Israel, you're anti-Semitic to people like Adelson. Being a gentile alone is usually enough for someone like Sheldon to look down his nose at you, especially if you don't have anything he wants. The reason why so many people have been skeptical and even hostile to the Jews is because they are about as effective as the Islamic world in controlling their fanatical contingent.

    Trump:




    Adelson:
    “I don’t think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president,” he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. He’s the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul

    Trump did endorse Netanyahu. I guess people are getting too excited about his desire to appear neutral in regard to Israel's occupation of Palestinian territories. I'm not saying the Palestinians are completely innocent.
