Report: Left-Wing Millionaire Funded Rally


Recent rallies protesting the cost of living were funded in part by Jewish-American millionaire Daniel Abraham, according to Channel 10. Abraham told the news network that he supports the protest and opposes construction for Jews in Judea and Samaria.

“The way to improve the average Israeli's standard of living is to stop supporting the settlements and the hareidim,” he said.

He is also known for his support for talks with the Palestinian Authority, although he opposes the PA's demand that the city of Jerusalem be split.
