Middle Gate Ventures
Middle Gate Ventures was created on or around July 8, 2004, by Jack Abramoff after he cut his ties with Cassidy & Associates to do "such business opportunities as energy projects, real estate development and motion picture production -- no lobbying," according to the Washington Post's Judy Sarasohn.
Regime Change in Syria
The "Reform Party of Syria's Farid Ghadry has been a featured speaker at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, and is himself a member of AIPAC, American Israel Public Affairs Committee. When repeated calls to his organization went unanswered, I visited the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the RFP," Trish Schuh, wrote in the November 18, 2005, Counterpunch.
The "Reform Party of Syria is the office of 'super-Zionist' Jack Abramoff. Middle Gate Ventures, Abramoff's 'political advisory company' partners with RFP. Abramoff, a top Beltway lobbyist, has the requisite links and resources to proxy a regime change and his skills in foreign intervention are known," Schuh wrote.
