Report: Obama Administration Funded Campaign to Topple Netanyahu

This story originally appeared at the Washington Times:

The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.

Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.

In one stunning finding, the subcommittee said OneVoice even told the State Department’s top diplomat in Jerusalem of its plans in an email, but the official, Consul General Michael Ratney, claims never to have seen them.

He said he regularly deleted emails with large attachments — a striking violation of open-records laws for a department already reeling from former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s handling of official government records.

    topple Netanyahu? On that I am sorry he failed.Bibi is bad for Israel and the Jewish people.
    He is arrogant and very ambitious for himself. He wants to beat his Brother in history and
    makes enemies all over. with his scare tactics that are actually creating the danger.
    Hes self righteous way is loosing the good will of the people to aggravate our own problem
    to protect Israel from anger he causes. All Nations have at some time elected the wrong people, Israel, due to fear he creates votes for him, as other nations have done historically. Quoting Buchanan during the Iraq war; “how may more countries do you want us to take out for you?” The same goes for Obama who also keeps pushing on us to sacrifice, but for different reasons.
