Bibitours Scandal: The Life of Netanyahu

leave a comment »

Richard Silverstein has been reporting on a Netanayahu scandal exposed by Israeli journalist, Raviv Drucker:

According to my understanding of Drucker’s report, Bibi did none of these things. To give you a sense of the scope of the charges, between 1999 and 2001 alone Bibi earned $2-million in speaking fees from pro-Israel groups like Israel Bonds, American Enterprise Institute and BICOM. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in stays at luxury hotels in London, New York, Brussels and elsewhere were paid for on his behalf by corporate fatcats with business interests that could directly benefit from helping a future prime minister. Scores of trips using private jets of these same fatcats. Private cars at the beck and call of Sara Netanyahu and her children. All of this again in direct violation of ethics guidelines and Israeli tax law.

In a number of these cases, the groups themselves were reimbursed for the fees and other expenses by private parties whose names are the cream of the crop of French, U.S. and British Jewish corporate power. Among the names of those who offered Bibi financial carte blanche are Arnon Milchan, the Hollywood powerbroker and Poju Zabludowicz, chairman of BICOM, who helped fund Adam Werrity’s first-class world travel conniving for regime change in Iran. Most of those individuals either refused to discuss their actions or offered limited explanations and were reluctant to talk. Some confessed to memory lapses. Some even tried to hide them in ways that are even more suspicious.
