Adelson Honored at ZOA Soirée

Sheldon Adelson

Las Vegas Sands Corporation billionaire Sheldon Adelson resurfaced at a pro-settler Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) dinner on December 13th. Adelson has been noticeably quiet in recent months as his efforts—one would assume—have been focused on keeping his casino empire afloat. With the worst of the financial crisis passing it would seem that Adelson has more time and money to spend on his favorite hobby—Israeli politics.

The Forward’s Josh Nathan-Kazis writes about the ZOA dinner in his article, “From the Right: ZOA Faithful Challenges Israelis on Freeze.”
