2. Adelson uses his wealth to protect Israel from the left
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.04.19)
Sheldon Adelson is a very smart man. People don't tend to become self made billionaires by being stupid. Adelson also loves Israel. That is why Adelson is using his wealth to protect Israel from the greatest danger that confronts our tiny sole Homeland; the lunatic, death wish Israeli left.

The left that insanely, consistently tries to shrink our Homeland into a 9 mile wide concentration camp. The left that is constantly trying to create a new "Palestinian" terror state in the heart of Israel. Adelson is a true blessing to Israel and the Jewish people. We ALL need to protect Israel from the left.
3. paid for by gambling casinos...
4. Left Wing NGOs Do the Same
Jake ,   Dallas   (03.04.19)
Left wing NGOs spend non-Israeli money - even foreign governmental money - to bring the Left to power in Israel. They are simply not as effective. How much non-Israeli money goes to these NGOs? In 2012-2016, the 39 NGOs received a total of NIS 515,804,616. No complaints from the Left about that. That is perfectly fine and natural of course - to the Left.

7. Never Thought I'd Agree With Ynet But This Time.
World Citizen ,   the world   (03.04.19)
Sheldon Adelson is the epitome of the term 'slime bag'.
8. Adelson owning a paper isn't illegal or immoral
Shachar ,   Eilat   (03.05.19)
Political parties have owned papers and been supported by papers since Independance Day in 1948. I doubt Israel Today has had much influence on anyone, everybody knows it is pushing right-wing propaganda just like many papers hold a left-wing stance on the news. It is completely legitimate. Corruption comes in only where the gov't is used to tilt the playing field towards one of the sides...or an acquaintance.
MR CYNIC ,   SAFED HONESTY   (03.05.19)
He makes Aliyah !
10. “ Media Obsession “?! It’s Totally Biased by Left !!
FascistLeftMedia ,   Jerusalem   (03.05.19)
Few in Israel will disagree that the media here is
totally un democratic and in being so a danger to the nation
The nation doesn’t get news it gets 24/7 Extreme Leftist Propaganda
Gossiping and backstabbing it is in fact a cheap gossip column for the disappearing Askenazi Secular Elite Of Tel Aviv
11. Media bibi obsession - wrong title.... since the 90s
12. What is kosher for Noni Mozes
Ilan   (03.05.19)

13. About Sheldon Adelson
Angus ,   Tyre - Lebanon   (03.05.19)
Adelson is American but he is also a good Jew, and on his father's side he has Ukrainian-Jewish and Lithuanian-Jewish ancestry. His parents were Democrats and he was Democrat. He attributed his family's loyalty to their belief that the Democratic Party shared their commitment to charity, self-confidence and responsibility, as well as support for Jewish causes.

But in 2012 the Wall Street Journal's op-ed, "I Didn't Leave the Democrats. They Left me," Adelson specifies two reasons why he switched political parties to Republicans. First, he cites foreign policy, pointing to a Gallup poll that suggests that Republicans support Israel more than Democrats. Second, he cited statistics that suggest that Republicans are more charitable than Democrats.

The main fact is that Adelson is one of the most generous donors of Israel and of Jewish causes in general. Through the Adelson Family Foundation, he has donated tens of millions of dollars to Yad Vashem, Birthright, IDC Herzliya and many other causes in Israel, the United States, Singapore and Macao.

He is the largest donor of Yad Vashem, and continues to channel large sums of money towards Birthright. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, and he and his wife, during their frequent visits to Israel, pledge to attend the Birthright mega-meetings.

Is it a crime to donate legally earned money to the Jewish legitimate causes and ideologies in which a Jew man firmly believes?
14. Which shows that Jewish control over the US gov is nonsense
Avi L.   (03.05.19)
15. Why
John   (03.08.19)
I can’t understand the comments here. For every sake you’re blaming lefties. For every article you’re blaming lefties. Why the hell are you reading this newspaper? Could it be because in fact that you love it?
16. israeli self-hatred - brought to you by the jewish oligarchs
Daniel ,   TA - IL   (03.10.19)
plotzer shows a sad character tray of the selfhating jew... envy of those who stand up for themselves. Whatever he says here can be put on him and his hatemonging pay-master - noni mozes, who violates and destroys democracy in israel with his scheming and incitement of hatred.
