the Israeli defense minister held meetings with Rupert Murdoch and others, reportedly in order to advance his "West Bank real estate grab.
"The visit with Sharon included a trip for Murdoch and his editors from New York and London that "took them on a bird's-eye tour of Israel aboard a helicopter gunship, flying over the Golan Heights, West Bank and settlements."
"I have always believed in the future of Israel and the goals of the international Jewish community," Murdoch said at a spring fund-raiser for the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust on April 29, 2001.
From the beginning, News Corp., his global media company, "has been supportive of the Jewish national cause," Murdoch said.
