Feb 3, 2021: AP: Netanyahu hires ex-Breitbart journalist as campaign chief
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has named a former journalist with the right-wing Breitbart news site, who authored books challenging Barack Obama’s fitness for president, as his campaign chief for March 23 national elections.
Aaron Klein, who has served as a political strategist to Netanyahu since last year, confirmed his appointment to The Associated Press on Wednesday. The news was first reported in Israeli media.

Considering Netanyahu is himself a nearly unparalleled strategist and communicator, it follows that he’d only draft the highest-caliber assets. Indeed, Klein’s credentials are solid and assuring. Before helping Netanyahu and Likud win their last election — his work was praised by campaign chairman Israel Katz — Klein had worked for more than 15 years as a journalist, strategist, and author specializing in politics and the Middle East.
And yet, some in Israel have protested his appointment. Of course, they don’t call into question his integrity or abilities, but rather a few obscure political opinions he expressed over the past 15 years. News outlets on both sides of the aisle dug through a decade of news content, each intent on proving that Klein was a right-wing extremist. Some slammed him for slamming President Barack Obama, even as Obama empowered genocidal Imams with $150 billion and legitimized their nuclear ambitions with his Iran deal and refused to veto an United Nations motion against Israel, itself an American first. Others warned that Klein’s appointment might offend Joe Biden, summing it up as a “short-sighted move” bent on “antagonizing Democrats.”

According to Breitbart’s Jerusalem bureau chief, that will not change with Bannon leaving the far-right news website to become President-elect Donald Trump’s chief White House strategist.
Saying he shares a worldview with Bannon, Aaron Klein plans to expand the Israel operation, which staunchly backs the Jewish state’s political right wing. “We’re here to counter the total bias of the mainstream media in coverage of Israel,” Klein, 38, said in an interview at his Tel Aviv apartment. “We write for the American audience, a Western audience obviously at this point. I think a huge segment of Israelis also has a pretty [whetted] appetite for an outlet that isn’t controlled by the leftist media mafia.”
