Newsline: Jewish American billionaire funded Guatemalan delegation flight for Jerusalem embassy opening

Jewish American billionaire Sheldon Adelson funded the Boeing 767 flight of the Guatemalan delegation sent to Israel to attend the ceremony in honor of their embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Guatemalan foreign minister Sandra Jovel broke the news on the radio show ConCriterio about the speculated trip cost that covered government officials, guests, and religious leaders. Jovel said Adelson did not have business affairs in Guatemala. Nonetheless, director of civil society organization Citizen Action, Manfredo Marroquin, said President Jimmy Morales’s administration violated Guatemalan law by accepting the gift from a private entity, Haaretz reported. The Republican mega-donor had also offered to subsidize the cost of building the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.
