Not satisfied with asking Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak before congress in an effort to undermine the Obama Administration's position on Iran, the Republicans are also sending their top propagandists to Israel to help elect far-right, war criminal politicians.

American Media Guru Denies Republicans Sent Him to Help Netanyahu Re-election Campaign
Vincent Harris denied an Army Radio report that linked senators McConnell and Cruz and his employment with Likud.

An American digital media guru denied reports Monday that suggested he was sent by the Republicans in order to help Netanyahu win reelection.
Army Radio reported that the Likud employed Vincent Harris, who worked for Republican senators Mitch McConnell and Ted Cruz. The report said the Likud complained about US President Barack Obama’s former field director, Jeremy Bird, advising groups working to unseat Netanyahu, even though they were using the same tactic.
“I have not spoken to Senator Cruz or to Mitch McConnell about my job here,” he said. “My Israeli work is completely separate from my work in the US, so what is being reported is not true. I love Israel, and I am excited to be here to help the Likud and the prime minister use digital media in an effective and forward-looking manner.”
Harris told The Jerusalem Post that he started working for the Likud more than six weeks ago, just like Republican strategist John McLauglin and just like other American strategists had worked for Netanyahu in other elections going back to 1996. He denied any connection between the senators and his employment with the Likud.
