Olmert: I hate everything Sheldon Adelson loved about Israel - opinion

The list of people who penned eulogies in memory of Sheldon Adelson included quite a few names of the Who’s Who of Israeli society and Jewish communities around the world. Some of these eulogies were carefully worded and respectable compositions that expressed all the expected sentiments, in a precise manner, such as those made by President Reuven Rivlin, former Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Meir Lau – who has for many years now been serving as chairman of Yad Vashem, which received generous contributions from Adelson – and leaders of Taglit-Birthright, which also received significant sums from the deceased.

Sheldon loved an Israel that most of the residents living here don’t even want. He preached a racism that is inimical to us. He supported discrimination against Arabs, which we are definitely not prepared to go along with. He hated leftists, and did his utmost to make Israeli society fractious. He encouraged internal disputes and rivalries among ourselves, even though he himself didn’t live here.

Everything he loved, I hate.

Everything I love about Israel has nothing to do with Adelson.
