Skip to comments.Think again: Why WoW’s radical leaders matter (Israel's 'Women of the Wall)
Posted on 12/01/2013 9:47:57 AM PST by Nachum
Is it merely a coincidence that so many of Women of the Walls (WoW) leaders have numerous close associations with radical, anti-Israel groups? Or could it be that WoW is a useful vehicle for advancing an anti-Israel narrative that leaves Israel increasingly isolated internationally? Is concealing that agenda the reason why WoW tried to suppress the story of its leaders ties to fringe anti-Israel NGOs?
Early this month, journalist Rachel Avraham posted a story on Jerusalem Online, the English-language website of Channel 2 News, detailing the connections between WoW vice-chairwoman Batya Kallus and chairwoman Anat Hoffman, and various anti-Israel groups.
As program director for the Moriah Fund, Kallus helps facilitate funding for such groups as Adalah, Ir Amim, Yesh Din and Mossawa. Adalah rejects Israels right to exist as a Jewish state, and has been active in promoting Israel Apartheid Week on North American campuses, and in the dissemination of the Goldstone Report accusing Israel of war crimes in Operation Cast Lead. The report cited evidence provided by Adalah 38 times.
Yesh Din categorizes Israel as an apartheid state and supported Turkeys position after the Mavi Marmara incident, in which Israeli naval commandos attempting to interdict the Gaza flotilla were set upon with iron bars and knives. Like Adalah, Mossawa rejects Israels existence as a Jewish state, and describes it as having been built on the ruins of the Palestinian people.

WoW is for World of Warcraft.
Prepare for disappointed nerds.
Best comment of the day.
Leftists are very good at creating organizations, many many many of them to make their side look popular and numerous. They know the media will happily fall for their fraud
The Jews have faced many enemies but few as dangerous as the enemy within or from within (soros Kissinger Peres the list is long enough you can have your pick). Israel works hard under siege to maintain an open society
But someday the enemy within may finally force isr to expel or imprison or otherwise eliminate it as a matter of basic survival.
WoW’s radical leaders? I don’t think Jaina or King Varian are radical. Stormwind is a beacon of culture, civility, and trade and aside from the attack by Deathwing has known peace for generations.
WOW = WorkOut World (low cost gym facilities).
