More than 90 percent of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s $250,000 in campaign funds has come from donors in the United States—and just three families contributed more than half of that amount. “There is a well-established network in the U.S. through the group, American Friends of the Likud, which is connected to people who care about Israel and its future,” said a Likud party adviser. “He doesn’t even have to ask and they give.” Netanyahu began his re-election campaign Monday. He is the second longest serving prime minister of Israel.
