Israeli-American billionaire and Democratic megadonor Haim Saban was involved in the publication of an op-ed piece warning against Israel’s plan to apply sovereignty to parts of Judea and Samaria, Channel 13’s Barak Ravid reported Friday.If Saban's that cozy with the Islamists, and his reasoning for supporting sovereignty amounts only to that, then he's clearly just another disgrace and shame who's not living in the US to do Israel any good. Wow, I am so glad he's no longer working in the children's segment of showbiz these days. Why, that could surely be one of the most troubling aspects about him - he was likely propagandizing to and indoctrinating the younger crowd. He doesn't belong in showbiz at all.
According to the report, Israeli sources claimed that Saban was consulted by the United Arab Emirates’ ambassador to the US, Yousef Al Otaiba, for an opinion piece published by the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot Friday morning.
In the piece, Al Otaiba warns Israel against implementing the sovereignty plan, arguing it will “send shock waves” throughout the Middle East, destabilizing moderate Arab states and harming Israel’s warming relations with US allies in the region, including the UAE.
Saban, a long-time acquaintance of Al Otaiba, was reportedly asked to help the UAE find a platform for addressing Israelis. Al Otaiba consulted with Saban, the report claims, with Saban assisting Al Otaiba in having his op-ed piece published by Yediot Aharonot. UAE leaders had planned to publish the piece in a prominent American newspaper, like The New York Times or Washington Post, but were persuaded by Saban to use an Israeli outlet. [...]
In late January, Saban endorsed the Trump plan, telling the Jewish Insider that the plan “offers a blueprint to promote a continued push towards a two-state solution in which Israel remains a Jewish and democratic state living in peace, prosperity, and, most importantly, in security alongside its neighbors.”
