American Jews fund anti-Israel organizations
WND ^ | June 22, 2009 | Samuel Sokol and David Bedein

Posted on 06/23/2009 8:09:40 PM PDT by RobinMasters

A U.S. organization has been receiving money from perhaps unsuspecting Jewish donors to support blatantly anti-Israel groups.

American Jews wishing to donate money to Israeli causes routinely utilize local city Jewish federations as a middleman. Hundreds of millions of dollars per year are sent to Jewish federations across the country with the expectation contributions will be used to aid worthy causes in Israel.

Many U.S. Jewish federations as well as individual Jewish donors give to the New Israel Fund, or NIF, a Washington, D.C.-based foundation dedicated to fostering social change and progressive causes in Israel.

The NIF budget comes from a combination of donors. These include the Ford Foundation, grant organizations such as the Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Foundation and the Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies, as well as various Jewish communal federations such as the Jewish Federation in New York, the Durham-Chapel Hill Federation and the Jewish Federation of Grand Rapids.

Although I’m Christian, I have many older members of my family that are Jewish. When ask the question, why do they not support Israel. With few exception, they all profess that Judaism is more a philosophy than a religion therefore, why support Israel.

Jews should give direct to individual pro–israel groups rather than the Federations.

Not sure what this means … you must remember, I’m two generations away for Judaism. All veiled references must be put in context.

There were no “Palestinian Jews” when Jesus lived. There were only Jews living in Roman Occupied Judea.

Unfortunately, even good groups like the JNF has been corrupted.

The veil is in reference to unbelievers.. In another words it is a curse upon those who do not see aka, scales upon their eyes so they could not discern. Jesus is Lord. The Messiah has already come and His work is finishised... The veil is nothing more than a shade to those who are of a hardened heart to not recognize that “It is finished! Allejuah!!! Thank you Lord that the age of Grace is still here!!!

I’m sure some are unsuspecting, but there are also those like the trolls we recently encountered, who support the destruction of Israel, but then feign innocence when called out on it. They attack Israel’s supporters, and squeal like stuck pigs when their treachery is exposed.

Sounds like your relatives are Woody Allen Jews (self loathing and wishing that conservative/orthodox would disappear.)

Don’t your relatives realize that the approx. 6 million Jews in Israel HAVE NO PLACE TO GO?

...and, if Israel ceases to exist THOSE JEWS ARE DEAD.

That’s why I used a lowercase p, I was referring to the [Jews living in the] area not the people-group.

Federation gives much of their money to non-Jewish non-Israel causes anyway. They have for a long time.

No one who cares about Israel should give to them.

And in related news: The dominant Gentile power of the day sadistically tortured Him to death.

The Jewish leadership at least thought Him guilty. The Gentile leadership murdered a man with full knowledge of His innocence--and have murdered His people in like fashion ever since.

Shalom.

I never said that gentiles were blameless.
I was only pointing out that Jews are human too, and one human ability is to brutally turn on one another.

If someone said that there were waves of violence in the US against its Citizens I could have pointed out the civil war, or some of the anti-veitnam protests, or the troops returning from vietnam... there is historical precedence.

It is a state which will never be rectified until Jesus comes back as King and Judge and rules the peoples and nations.

No, you singled out the Jews as the killers of Christ. You weren’t even subtle about it.

The area was not called "Syria Palestina" until 139CE, when the Romans tried to deJudaize the area after the Bar Kochba revolt. It is a little like calling Jerusalem Aelia Capitolina . It is anarchronistic and insulting.

The JNF was originally created to buy land for Jews. They don’t really do this anymore.

>No, you singled out the Jews as the killers of Christ. You weren’t even subtle about it.

If the Jews hadn’t demanded it Pilate would have let him go; don’t you remember him saying “I find no guilt in him” and what of the response of the Jews that his blood would be on them and their children? (Matt 27:25)

In a very real sense the Jews WERE the killers of Christ. In another real sense, so were the Romans who crucified him. And in another real sense, so am I, a sinner.

There is no need to be subtle about it; it is a matter of public record.

139 CE? Who the hell uses CE? THAT is pretty insulting in itself.... well, at least to some trains of thought. ;)

But honestly, they gave it the name 1870 years ago... that’s like 69 times my age. Sure it may be Anachronistic, but insulting? If there’s one thing that political correctness should show you is that ANYTHING can be insulting to ANYONE.

American Jews are a big disappointment to patriotic and conservative Americans.
