Gala in California Raised $30+mn for the Israel Defense Forces*
By John Friend
A group of some of the wealthiest and most influential people in America, consisting of both traitorous American citizens and hostile, subversive agents and partisans of the Jewish state of Israel, recently raised millions of dollars for the terrorist army of the Zionist regime occupying Palestine. At a gala in Los Angeles, California, over $30 million was raised for the Israel Defense Forces, a foreign military organization widely known to engage in and commit acts of false flag terrorism, indiscriminate bombing of civilian and civil infrastructure, torture, and other barbaric, horrific crimes. The Times of Israel reports:
Hollywood A-list actors, politicians and tech moguls came together Thursday to raise a record-breaking $33.5 million for the IDF at a Los Angeles gala fundraiser.
Barbra Streisand, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Pamela Anderson were among the 1,200 guests who attended the annual Friends of the Israel Defense Forces event at which the unprecedented sum was raised.
“It is incredibly touching to see how advocacy for the FIDF has grown in Los Angeles,” said Haim Saban, the American-Israeli philanthropist who chaired the gala.
“The caliber of Gala attendees from Hollywood, tech, business and other walks of life — especially a large contingent of people without ties to Israel or Judaism — ultimately speaks to their admiration for the heroic men and women of the IDF and the incredible work that the FIDF does to support them,” Saban said.
Notable donations made at the event included $10 million from Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, $5 million from philanthropists Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, $5.2 million from Maurice and Paul Marciano of Guess Jeans, $3.6 million from Cheryl and Haim Saban and $2 million from New York Giants president Steve Tisch.
First time attendees Michael and Susan Dell donated $1.8 million to fund the educational scholarship programs for soldiers and veterans.
“In my mind, there is no greater honor than supporting some of the bravest people in the world, and I thank FIDF for providing us with this opportunity year-after-year to celebrate and support these soldiers,” said Larry Ellison. “These men and women come together with indefatigable purpose, to defend Israel and strive to co-exist in peace.” […]
One wonders if similar fundraisers are held for the American military, which has been waging a variety of fraudulent, immoral, and unjustifiable wars of aggression against the peoples of the Middle East at the behest of international Jewry and the Jewish state of Israel ever since 9/11 (and arguably well before). I tend to doubt it. There are a number of charities and non-profits dedicated to helping American veterans and servicemen and women who are frequently abused, neglected, and abandoned by the federal government and military establishment, but I doubt all the high profile celebrities and Jewish plutocrats who attended the aforementioned fundraiser for the IDF care at all about members of the American military. In their minds, the American military is simply a tool used to attack and destroy the enemies of the Zionist regime occupying Palestine, whose members can be discarded once their service is up.
