Now That’s Rich Coming From Silverstein

In a recent post claiming Binyamin Netanyahu threatened the licenses of Israeli media which published the list of wealthiest Israeli politicians, DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein cannot resist some snide remarks.

Tonight another major breaking story fresh from the Land of Milk, Honey and the Filthy Rich as reported by a confidential authoritative Israeli source.


The wealthiest on the list was deputy prime minister Silvan Shalom, whose wife, Judy Nir Mozes, is a part-owner (12%) of Yediot Achronot.   He’s worth over $40-million which, on the scale of your average Knesset member, is gargantuan wealth.  Most of his lucre comes from his wife’s family.

This is rich (for want of a better word) coming from an unemployed bum whose sole source of lucre is his wife.

Update: If you read the post and comments, you’ll notice this is another example of Silverstein showing he is completely unreliable.

I’ve updated the story after hearing from Dvorit Shargel who first reported it yesterday. I’ve updated even further when I realized I hadn’t gotten one part of the story my source gave me quite right.

For how long are people going to trust this man and his so-called “sources”?
