A hand grenade was thrown into the home of Millionaire Aaron Shaked, brother of Avi Shaked and partner in the renowned Casino 888. Aaron Shaked is now running in the internal elections for Israel's Labor Party, under the slogan "Proud, Socialist Millionaire!" Reported by

Late Saturday night, a hand grenade was thrown into the house of the millionaire Aaron Shaked. Shaked won a name for himself in September of last year, when Casino 88 went public in the London Stock exchange. Each of the Shaked brothers made over 90 million dollars in the emission and remained with holdings of over 250 million dollars in the biggest casino in the world.

As reported in Aaron Shaked is now running in the primaries for the Israeli Labor Party, under the slogan "Proud, Socialist Millionaire!" Declaring that notwithstanding his fortune, which is estimated at 1.6 billion dollars, Shaked feels for the less fortunate, Shaked promises to raise minimum wage and to lead far reaching reforms that will improve the state of Israel's poor, and the worker class. Asked why he decided now to run for office, he replied that the political environment in Israel is such that he finally feels that he can make a difference. This is not the first time that Shaked has found himself in politics. A member of the Labor Party since 1981, Shaked was a key member of the groups of businessmen who supported the Geneva initiative, who sought to find an answer to the Middle Eastern Crisis.

The explosion that occurred late Saturday rocked the entire street of the exclusive neighborhood where Shaked lives, and while no one was injured, the house itself suffered damages and broken windows. The authorities are investigating whether the bomb is connected to Shaked's recent announcement of running for political office, or whether it is connected to the family's casino business. While the family has suffered similar attacks in the past, there has been a lull in recent years.
