Patrick Drahi: The Israeli Oligarch Taking Over French and American Media

Recommended Posts

(because 99% of control over media/film/video,magazines/newsprint is not enough in the US)

As I have said elsewhere, Jewish control of media in France strikes me as rather less pronounced as in the United States of America. But Jews do own a fair amount of French media. The most prominent example today is the Israeli financier Patrick Drahi, whose example is highly informative. Drahi has bought up a huge chunk of French print media, some TV and radio, and wants to take over the entire U.S. cable market (he already has two U.S. operators).

One basic take away is this: French Jews who are making their Aliyah to Israel – often citing Islamist terrorism caused by the immigration to France which Jewish groups have themselves supported – in no way forsake meddling in French affairs. A Paris-Tel Aviv flight only takes about four-and-a-half hours after all. Indeed, the aptly-named Roger Cuckierman — a Rothschild banker and the head of the French Jewish lobby (CRIF) has a son Édouard who lives in Israel, has patriotically served in the Israeli Defense Forces, is also a banker, and now sells Europe on Israel by building “cross-continental economic bridges.” Oh yes, what good “French citizens” these Cuckiermans.

(Actually Cuckierman recently clarified that: “the Jew is not a citizen like others” and that “we Jews are used to being the sentinels of democracy.” Translated into plain English: Cuckierman believes Jews are a privileged class of citizens and that Jewish ethnic lobbies and “public intellectuals” have and should have a leading role in enforcing political correctness and policing thought in France.)

Here is what the Observatory of Journalists and Media Information (OJIM, a patriotic French media watchdog) has gathered on Patrick Drahi in an article entitled An Empire at the Heart of the System”:

Heading a colossal business empire, Patrick Drahi began taking an interest in the media in the 2000s, buying up Libération [left-liberal newspaper], L’Express, L’Expansion, Studio Ciné Live, Lire[“Reading”], Mieux Vivre Votre Argent [“Better Living Your Money” (sic)], Classica, etc, before coveting the NextRadioTV group [holder of general and business TV and radio stations]. There is no doubt that he is, and will perhaps long remain, the key man in the media, unless his empire-on-credit should collapse like a house of cards . . .

Drahi’s financial empire seems to be some kind of Ponzi scheme which has not fallen apart yet. (A Ponzi scheme is a perfectly good business model as long as you do not plan on being around when it collapses or if, having bought off the politicians, you can count on them to bail you out.)

The best evidence that Drahi as an Israeli has no love for France comes from the praise of Bernard-Henri Lévi. B.-H. L. said the following in a bizarre speech of narcissistic Jewish supremacism at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, entitledPatrick Drahi, the Jews, and Money and naturally republished by the CRIF’s website:

A Frenchman of heart and soul, a Swiss national, an Israeli citizen born in Casablanca, Citizen Drahi[1] reigns over this limitless and borderless territory [. . .] you [Drahi] are also one of these Gidians[2]that the “French ideology”[3] has opposed for a century but which we cruelly need in this time of native weightiness[4] and chauvinist choking — you are one of the citizens of the world to whom it is impossible to assign an “ethnicity” [souche], to enclose in an affiliation, to exhaust by one of these three “Ns” (the natal, the national, the natural), which I have said in a recent text how much they impoverish this humanity from which you come, which you yourself have told us only uses [i.e., humanity] an infinitesimal part of her intelligence and thought. And, for that as well, I salute you.

This conceited, pretentious, and hypocritical anti-European and pro-Israeli garbage really is what Lévy says and writes, all the time. The “French” media regularly republish and give a platform to this sort of thing with a straight face. Obviously, if Drahi — though born in French North Africa — has chosen to perform his Aliyah and move from France to Israel — then he is not simply a “citizen of the world” as Lévy claims, but is presumably a patriotic, strongly-identified ethnic Jew. Lévy then makes the claim that Drahi is alien to all nations – but this is absurd for, as discussed below, the financier has an explicit Zionist commitment to Israel.

“B.-H. L.” has become synonymous in much of French-speaking public opinion for Jewish-Zionist tribal arrogance.

Drahi apparently married an Orthodox Christian from Syria, but he chose to do so religiously in a Geneva synagogue. He has four children who “are studying in the best schools in Bristol, Geneva, and Tel Aviv, and seem destined to one day take charge of things.” His “absolute dream” is for his children to work with him, emphasizing the powerful commitment to high-investment parenting and organized clannish networking in the Jewish community. His two daughters have undergone their benot-mitzvah and every Sabbath eve he “hops into a rental jet to go see them, assembled together in one of his properties.”

Drahi moved to Israel in 2009 and became an Israeli citizen as a prerequisite to taking over a major Israeli media holding company (Israel has patriotic and protectionist cultural legislation which requires any shareholder of more than 20 percent of a telecoms operator be a citizen). He has since renounced his French citizenship.

The media reports that Drahi has justified his promotion of international investment in Israel because he is a “Zionist.” Haaretz has reported that Drahi wanted to create “an Israeli version of al-Jazeera” (i24News) and that he is motivated by “a sincere and real Zionist motivation to help improve Israel’s image by presenting the vibrant, modern, young lifestyle of the Israelis who live here. In addition to the content broadcast from Israel, the channel will also document the life of Jewish communities abroad.”

Madonna has a $20M pad there, Barbra Streisand has taken 100 rooms and Gerard Butler has been bailed out by pals in the new trendy getaway that has been called the "sexiest city in the world."


 may be smack-dab in the middle of the Holy Land, but over the last decade Tel Aviv has unveiled itself as a kind of glamorous new Sin City. The tantalizing beaches, cafes and nightlife, along with its unique mix of the Middle East with a Mediterranean party atmosphere, ensure the lifestyle-loving capital continues to buzz with energy. It couldn't be more contrary with the image of many of the uninitiated: "People think we're still riding on camels!" one local told THR. "They also think we're always at war — and it's not safe here." Yet upon arrival, one finds a bustling urban respite with all the things sophisticated seekers are hoping to find, and more.

Why the exodus to the Israeli coastal city? "Tel Aviv is the sexiest city in the world!" declares native Motty Reif, a producer and founder of Tel Aviv Fashion Week (its fourth was held in October) who's also resided in Los Angeles. But it's not just the sultry heat that Hollywood embraces. Tel Aviv's thriving TV and film business compels the entertainment industry to visit frequently — to schmooze and to buy. "Tel Aviv's now a world capital," says producer Howard Rosenman, who's been spending winter holidays there (it's a 15-hour direct flight from L.A.) for more than a decade, as well as developing a number of homegrown projects. World-traveling director Brett Ratner calls it "the most cosmopolitan place I've ever been. A scene of cosmic proportions." Producer Ben Silverman loved it so much he got married there five years ago. "It's the utmost free open society – Christians, Muslims, Arabs, Jews... Even the Jews are from all different countries," he says. Showtime CEO David Nevins went for the network's Homeland shoot but returns because he is in awe of it: "The place is a real 20th century city — ancient and modern."


Lets ask again, who owns 99% of film/video/tv/magazines? Did you say the Jews? Aww, your on to it. Now where is Isreal @? Khazaria? Yep. (The Khazars)
