Although there's a far-left claim that Russia "stole" the White House from Hillary Clinton, it's quite true that the United States funded an attempt to defeat Israel's incumbent prime minister last year.
"I think the Russians intervened in this election," Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, whose emails were allegedly stolen by Russian hackers then leaked by Wikileaks, said Sunday.
Yet the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations reported in July that non-profit group OneVoice utilized State Department grants to support a political effort to unseat Benjamin Netanyahu in the March election.
That effort failed, however, and he remains the prime minister.
It was "stunning" to see taxpayers' money used to try to defeat an ally of the United States, complains pro-Israel activist Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries.
"And there are serious consequences," she warns, "when a nation or an individual, or a ministry for that matter, comes against Israel and any way shape, matter or form."
The bipartisan report, which can be read here, found that OneVoice received approximately $350,000 in grants to support peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority through 2014. Those negotiations broke down in December of 2014, setting up elections that targeted Netanyahu.
OneVoice, the investigation found, used U.S. grant funds to "support a political campaign to defeat the incumbent Israeli government known asV15."
OneVoice was led by Jim Messina, the former campaign manager for President Barack Obama.
Markell says the Left is so riddled with hypocrisy by blaming the Russians for their election defeat when they helped try to defeat Netanyahu.
"And I'm just going to be blunt and say that leftist Jews need to wake up," she says, "and leave the Democratic Party, and leave liberalism, because it's evil and it's anti-Israel and it's just plain anti-Semitic."
