Israeli-American mogul Haim Saban: Trump win would be ‘disastrous’ for Israel


Billionaire calls Republican candidate a ‘conman, liar, cheat, and thief,’ says he gave Clinton campaign ‘eight-figure’ donation

ed note–again, at the risk of over-repetition, the Jews simply aren’t buying Trump’s ‘I love Israel’ schtick. Some may be more sophisticated in their saying so, while others like Saban are more quick in utilizing caustic language. Furthermore, as we can see with Saban’s remarks about Adelson, clearly there is a war taking place within organized Jewry, where one side has a ‘vision’ for Israel that does not jibe with the other’s.

Israeli-American mogul Haim Saban said Friday that a US presidential win by Republican nominee Donald Trump would be “disastrous, disastrous for Israel.”

Speaking to Channel 10 news just minutes before Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, Saban said Trump was “not a Republican, he’s not a Democrat, he’s not an independent. Trump is Trump. Trump, as former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg defined him, is a conman,” Saban said.

Turning to the camera, Saban said his message to the public in Israel, for those who are not sure which candidate would make a president more likely to hold Israel’s best interest at heart, was this: “Don’t believe a single word this man says. He is a conman, a liar, a cheat, a thief and he’s cynical. Everything he does is to serve Trump alone.”

The interview, conducted in Hebrew, was aired on the Friday evening news edition.

Asked if Clinton as president would get along with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Saban said that since Netanyahu said he was committed to the two-state solution the two would get along.

“There are those who would say that those who are for two states and dividing Jerusalem are anti-Israel. In that case then, I’m anti-Israel. But the prime minister himself was clear on supporting two states for two peoples. The relations depend on both of them. But I’m very optimistic,” he said

The billionaire rejected the interviewer’s attempt to paint him as a Democratic parallel of casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, a strong backer of Netanyahu and the owner of the pro-Netanyahu daily Israel Hayom. But he said that Adelson was acting “because this is his faith. In the bottom line Sheldon loves the State of Israel, the Land of Israel. We disagree on the path, but the bottom line is the same bottom line.”

Adelson said in May that he would support Trump for the presidency if the real estate mogul was chosen as the nominee. “Yes. I’m a Republican, he’s a Republican,” Adelson said at a Manhattan event when asked if he would back Trump, according to The New York Times.

As for Clinton, Saban revealed that his donation to the Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign exceeded $10 million.

Asked whether it was true that he was Clinton’s biggest donor, he replied: “That’s what the papers write.”

He would not divulge the exact sum but said it had “eight figures.”

Asked whether he was in a position to give Clinton advice on her campaign, Saban said that there was one piece of advice he tells her repeatedly: Don’t shout.

“Don’t shout. You don’t need to shout. Say the same things, but not shouting, let [Republican Presidential candidate Donald] Trump, that conman, that prone liar, shout,” Saban said.

Asked why it was so hard for Clinton to secure the nomination, Saban said Clinton’s “biggest problem is that she’s married to the guy with the most charisma I’ve ever known in my life. He’s a kind of rock star that everyone admires and loves. Even those who disagree with him love him. She’s automatically being compared to him; it’s not fair.”

    The cockroaches are already looking for A new unwilling host. I.m afraid China is the unlucky one unless these parasites are finished at last for ever, Just from that moment on the world will be a nice place to dwell, So All gentiles together are more than capable to do the job. Treat them the same way they treat the gentile and not the nonsense of thother cheek, just defending our values and virtues against the parasites, they aren’t unbeatable they just make us think so!

    You still dont know the meaning of political theater for the masses? (Erdogan is another master at this playing the opposite of his true actions) Trump bad for Israel ??? WTFU his anti-Iran and anti-Muslims diatribes echo the zionist platform exactly.
    Missed the Jerusalem Post article on Rudy Giuliani did you?? He reveals his extensive talks w/ Likud and top Israel govt officials on his last trip there- and they ALL support TRUMP over Hillary. Trump will overturn the Iran nuke deal she brokered and will screw the Palestinians- Trump favors moving US embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Hellaviv

    ed note–this website, with its 6,000 subscribers, 15,000 published articles, 15 million hits and 150,000 posted comments is a living, breathing testimony to the fact that we understand ‘political theater’ very well, something that does not (or at least should not) need much explanation to anyone with eyes to see.

    Having said that, here’s a little ‘political theater’ for you to consider as well–Trump’s over-the-top pro-Israel posture is part of that theater as well, designed to bypass all the Judaic black magic that has been arrayed against him by the Jews from the moment he began his campaign.

    Why is it that ‘political theater’ only works one way? Ever heard of JFK? He did the same thing Trump is doing now, but then once he got through the doors at 1600 Pennsylvania ave, altered course and decided to do things his way.

    God, how I hate amateurs.
