Though Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu publicly denies having any preference as to who wins the upcoming U.S. presidential election, it’s clear he is rooting for Republican Mitt Romney. The two see eye to eye on the Middle East, and Romney in the White House would make life easier for Netanyahu, assuming he is reelected next year.

But the similarities don’t end with ideology: The two also have many donors in common. In fact, a Haaretz investigation found that 19 of Netanyahu’s wealthiest American donors, each of whom gave thousands of dollars to his campaign to defeat Moshe Feiglin in January’s Likud party leadership primary, have also given to Romney, the Republican Party, and/or other Republican candidates.

Surprisingly, Netanyahu’s donor list doesn’t include a single Democrat – a fact that indicates just how far removed he is from those American Jews who lean Democratic.

Altogether, Netanyahu received NIS 1,249,022 from 46 people for his primary campaign, an average of NIS 26,574 per person. By law, each donor’s name and address must be reported to the state comptroller, and it turns out that 37 of these donors were American.
