|“||Rupert Murdoch has always been a true friend of the Jewish people and of the state of Israel.||”|
|“|| The Jewish national cause is one that is extremely important to me, to my family, and to my company. We're also in Israel because of my faith in the integrity and worthiness of the Zionist undertaking. I have been accused of being pro-Israel, pro-Zionist, pro-Jewish -- charges to which I plead guilty.
— Rupert Murdoch, 1997, upon receiving "Humanitarian of the Year" from the United Jewish Appeal.
