Senate Report: State Department Funded Effort to Overthrow Netanyahu

What the hell is the hatred of Netanyahu about?

"Senate Report: State Department Funded Effort to Overthrow Netanyahu: A new report posted today by the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI), led by chair Rob Portman (R-OH) confirms that the U.S. State Department funded an Israeli political organization that later ran a campaign dedicated to ousting Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"The group, OneVoice, has drawn media scrutiny that led to this investigation.

Some key findings from the report:

"On December 2, 2014, at the urging of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Knesset voted to schedule new national parliamentary elections for March 2015. Within weeks, an international organization known as the OneVoice Movement absorbed and funded an Israeli group named Victory15 or V15 and launched a multimillion-dollar grassroots campaign in Israel. The campaign's goal was to elect anybody but Bibi [Netanyahu] by mobilizing center-left voters.1 The Israeli and Palestinian arms of OneVoice, OneVoice Israel (OVI), and OneVoice Palestine (OVP), received more than $300,000 in grants from the U.S. State Department to support peace negotiations between Israel and Palestine over a 14- month grant period ending in November 2014."
