Netanyahu’s and Yisrael Beiteinu campaigns funded by Qatar


Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, whose Hatnuah party suffered a defeat in the polls, revealed that some of its challengers in the legislative elections of 22 January 2013 have been subsidized by Qatar.

Outgoing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pocketed $ 3 million, while Yisrael Beiteinu, the party headed by Avigdor Liberman, another ex-Foreign Minister, cashed in $ 1.5 million.

In exchange, the right-wing coalition undertook to pledged the creation of a Jordanian-Palestinian federation governed by Hamas.
