One of theDems’ biggest contributor warns that the Obama administration are “really left leftists.” The Jerusalem Post reports that one of the Democratic party’s largest contributors is “dismayed” at the Obama administration’s policies towards Israel:

Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban, said to be the Democrats’ single biggest donor, says he is highly dismayed at the Obama administration’s approach to Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“To say I don’t sleep easily with the current administration’s relationship to Israel would be an understatement,” Saban told Channel 10’s reporter at an LA Gala dinner starring Idan Raichel and former ambassador John Bolton organized by the Israeli Leadership Council on Wednesday night.

“Obama wants to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians, the same thing we want,” Saban said, just the way he was going about it was not to the taste of many in Israel. “They are leftists, really left leftists, so far to the left there’s not much space left between them and the wall,” he said of the Obama administration.
