Lindsey Graham’s Pro-Israel Agenda For The Golan Heights Is Backed By Genie Energy

Genie Energy is an Israeli government-backed company whose success depends on exploiting the Syrian Golan Heights—meaning the Senator has a conflict of interest.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) with Genie Energy founder Howard Jonas at NORPAC in 2015.

The move by the U.S. to drop the designation of "Israeli-occupied" for the Syrian Golan Heights, with it instead now being referred to as "Israeli controlled," has been met with a myriad of responses. The interests behind the move seem to have escaped scrutiny by the media, however.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) recently made a trip to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, while calling on the U.S. to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the territory which belongs to Syria.

But is his self-proclaimed campaign just a ruse by billionaire and Genie Energy founder Howard Jonas?

Genie Energy is an Israeli government-backed company operating in the Golan Heights, with exclusive drilling rights first granted by Netanyahu, to pursue oil and water resources.

One of the problems, due to this discrepancy, is that Graham actively receives money from Jonas. This means that his attempts to goad the U.S. government into recognizing Israel's control, is conflicted by private energy interests, as was the case with Jared Kushner confidant Ira Greenstein.

Graham also receives money from NORPAC.

Simply put, this is a direct conflict of interest, since it means Graham's promotional activities directly correlate with potential future political contributions that are dependent on Genie Energy's success in the territory. As such, Graham should recuse himself.

Graham's campaign also comes in parallel to a bill sponsored by U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) who, of course, is also backed by Jonas.
