Western Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces gala at the Beverly Hilton, November 2, 2017. The sold-out gala claims to be “one of Los Angeles’ premier charitable events.” It drew 1,200 supporters from across the country.

Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces, which supports Israeli soldiers, hosts fundraising galas all over the U.S. The recent event in Los Angeles, studded with business titans and celebrities, raised over $50 million. As a registered non-profit in the US, contributions are tax deductible, allowing US citizens to write off donations that indirectly support a foreign army.

One would think that one of the world’s most powerful armies wouldn’t need a fundraiser to support its troops, especially since Israel already gets over $10 million per day from the US. Nevertheless, Hollywood mogul and longtime pro-Israel advocate Haim Saban and his wife Cheryl hosted a gala event in Los Angeles on Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017 to do just that. This is just one of such events held across the U.S.

The celebrity-filled event was for Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIFD) a U.S. “charity” that even before the fundraiser had assets of over $190 million. Donations to it are tax-deductible in the United States, although it is unclear why donations to benefit a foreign military (and one that regularly raises concerns about war crimes) should reduce one’s financial obligation to the United States. The gala was held despite the IDF’s record of killing civilians, including children.

An Israeli soldier detains a 12-year-old Palestinian boy with a broken arm during a 2015 demonstration against Israeli confiscation of Palestinian land in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. In the first year of the villagers’ unarmed demonstrations, Israeli soldiers wounded 155 of the 500 residents, about 60 of them children; 14-year-old Ihab Barghoutti went into a coma after he was shot in the head.

FIDF National Board Member Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl, chaired the star-studded gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for the 11th straight year. Saban is major donor to the Democratic party and has long been particularly close to the Clintons.

Jewish Insider reports that “Guests included prominent business, philanthropic, and political leaders and celebrated names in entertainment, fashion, sports, and technology, including Consul General of Israel in Los Angeles Sam Grundwerg; Dutch LLC CEO Serge Azria and his wife, Florence; Managing Member of R.H. Book LLC and Chairman of Jet Support Services Inc. Robert Book and his wife, Amy; Oracle Co-CEO Safra Catz; GUESS Founders Maurice and Paul Marciano; and Founder and President of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein and his wife, Joelle.”

Celebrities included Miss Israel 2013, Gerard Butler, David Foster, Joanna Krupa, Katharine McPhee, Paul Reubens (aka Pee Wee Hermanconvicted for possessing child pornography), Melissa Rivers (daughter of comedian Joan Rivers), and movie star and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

There were also 17 members of the IDF, all born and raised in the US, who later made Aliyah (immigration to Israel, considered a birthright for all Jews), flown over for the event.

According to reports, the largest amounts donated were $16.6 million by Oracle co-founder and CTO Larry Ellison, $6 million by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, $5.2 million by GUESS co-founders Paul and Maurice Marciano, and $5 million by host Haim Saban.

FIDF reportedly has more than 150,000 supporters and 20 chapters throughout the United States and Panama.

Barbra Streisand, Larry King, Sylvester Stallone, and Robert de Niro helped raise money at previous FIDF events, according to Variety and Jerusalem Online. Streisand said at a 2014 fundraiser: “This event is always one of the most inspiring and emotional evenings of the year.”

A few months before, Israeli forces had invaded Gaza, killing 2,000 Palestinians, including at least 521 children. More than 10,000 were injured and nearly 500,000 were displaced from their homes. Over 19,000 homes, hospitals, businesses, schools, and places of worship were destroyed or severely damaged.

Dumping The Boob Tube! Americans Are Ditching Their TVs in Record Numbers

Americans have fewer TVs on average than they did in 2009

And the number of households with no TVs at all grew.

Americans went from having an average of 2.6 TVs per household in 2009 to having 2.3 TVs in 2015, according to survey data from the US Energy Information Agency (EIA).

The data comes from the agency’s Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS), which has been conducted periodically since the 1970s to understand American energy use. The 2015 survey included 5,600 respondents who were contacted in person and then given an option to follow up by mail or online. A fine-detail report on the survey results is due to be released in April 2017.

The latest data shows that in 2015, 2.6 percent of households had no TV at all, a jump from the previous four surveys in 2009, 2005, 2001, and 1997 in which a steady 1.2 to 1.3 percent of households didn’t own a TV. The 2015 data also showed that the number of people with three TVs or more dropped in 2015. That year, 39 percent of households had more than three TVs, whereas 44 percent had more than three TVs in 2009.

Interestingly, the number of households with one or two TVs increased in 2015 to 58 percent, from 54 percent in 2009.

The EIA doesn’t go into what has caused this shift, but it does note that “younger households tend to have a lower concentration of televisions per person and a higher concentration of portable devices such as laptops and smartphones. Older households are more likely to have higher concentrations of desktop computers.” (Anecdotally, the Ars staff seems to agree that having one or two really nice TVs for family viewing as well as auxiliary devices for streamed media is preferable to having several just-okay TVs.)

The government surveys TV use because it’s a component of a household’s overall energy consumption. According to the EIA, about 6 percent of all electricity consumption in US homes comes from TVs, cable boxes, DVRs, video game consoles, and other peripheral equipment.

As TVs get bigger and higher in resolution, they can demand a lot more electricity, too. Last September, the Natural Resources Defense Council hired a third-party research firm to study TV energy use and found that several TV manufacturers were building their TVs to narrowly pass federal energy use tests, while consuming much more electricity if any of the TVs’ baseline settings were changed.

Zionists control Facebook, Google: Ex-CIA contractor

Press TV has conducted an interview with Steven D Kelley, a former NSA/CIA contractor, to discuss a recent report saying emails released from former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s cache of messages show Google had plans to encourage defections from the Syrian government.

The following is a rough transcription of the interview.

Press TV: It is interesting to note these emails coming from the head of Google Ideas putting a big question mark on net neutrality.

Kelley: Alright. You know this story has enormous ramifications; it is enormous story much larger than what you are really using as the title here. On the surface, yes this is a very creative approach that they are using to try to topple Assad and what it does also show is that they are using this to try to take away public focus on atrocities, which suggest that they are very aware of their guilt in carrying out of these atrocities and the need that they should have tried to overcome this you know public relations campaign. It also shows that Al Jazeera is nothing but a mouthpiece of this propaganda because they seem to be indicating that this is their … partner in the spreading of this information. So these are all very huge.

The very fact that the administration seems to have this very cozy relationship with these high level ranking people from Google also is extremely troubling and it would seem to indicate that the stereotypes that we have of our net as you say not being controlled by Zionist interests would be completely true. Obviously, Mark Zuckerberg comes to mind with Facebook and Google certainly has been accused of being a tool of the Zionist also. So considering that how many people use Google for their net searches or what have you the possibility for data mining are huge and then you add Facebook only, how many people; billions of people use Facebook. So this would all tend to verify everything that everybody have thought that all these organizations that have anything to do with internet are completely working with the Zionist and these administrations are all tools; so they are all on the same team.

Press TV: What about all these organizations like Facebook, like Google, like even Apple for example who tried to “defend the privacy of their customers” by standing up against the FBI and the State Department and refusing you know to give in to them by providing them with search histories or personal information on their users. There is that distinction where you draw the line. Are these crusaders freedom of speech, freedom of access to information or is there more to it?

Kelley: Well, there is always more to it and I think it is always the PR game. These people have to sell products; they have to make it look like they are on the right side of the issue with the public. If you look at Facebook, perfect example is they were recently the victim of a lawsuit, suggesting that they were promoting anti-Israel propaganda and stifling pro-Israel propaganda which we know the truth is actually the complete opposite of that. So what they say in public, very much like Donald Trump speech to AIPAC, is very rarely the truth.

Press TV: There is also that question of when it comes to freedom of access of information specifically at a time when more of the world population is going online as opposed to going to world’s traditional media. What kind of implications can this have? Considering our search results etc. are being controlled, will the world population have that chance to be aware enough to stand up against it?

Kelley: I think that information and truth is a double-edged sword and people should not worry about their words being listened to by Big Brother because I think there is a good chance that Big Brother can also learn something by the words that we use and we should use every opportunity look for alternatives certainly to Facebook and what have you, but we should not be afraid of using these systems. And I think that of anything these forces are very reactionary and they have to make changes in order to keep up with us. So anything that they do to try to hold us down, I think we will overcome.
