Excuse the language folks, but about ‘bloody time’ someone told the NIF – New Israel Fund, where to go.
The Maccabean – the Perth Jewish community’s newspaper has just done that.
- Since its founding in 1979, the NIF has provided over $250 million to more than 850 organizations.
- In 2013, the NIF authorized approximately $16.4 million to a wide variety of Israeli NGOs.
- NIF provided funding for the falsification of testimony for the Goldstone report.
Please read the full account of what and who the New Israel Fund is on the NGO MONITOR, one of the sites, as far as I am concerned, which should be your ‘bible’.
The newsletter below I received a short while ago from the NIF.
The Maccabean – the Perth Jewish community’s newspaper – is refusing to carry NIF’s ad promoting our screening of Magash Hakesef (The Silver Platter) . They haven’t told us why, and they aren’t responding to our queries.
Magash Hakesef, a documentary about economic inequality in Israel, screened on Israeli television in 2015 and was watched by 1.5 million Israelis. But The Maccabean doesn’t want the Perth Jewish community to know about it.
We think members of the Jewish community are smart enough to make up their own minds about what they see and read about Israel. We don’t need or want nameless censors telling us what to think.
If you agree – and think our community can be supportive of Israel, but also deal with the issues like those raised by Magash Hakesef – sign our petition now:Together, we can get the word out: not only is there more than one way to support Israel, but actually NIF’s work is crucial to ensuring Israel’s social fabric is maintained, that poverty is reined in, and that no Israelis should feel like outsiders in their own country.
Israel is too complex to limit a voice like NIF’s – and it’s not up to the community’s ‘leadership’ to decide which voices are in and which are out.
Thanks for your continued support.
 Want to see Magash Hakesef in your city? All the details are here.
Please I urge you to write to The Maccabean and congratulate them for standing up to the bullies.
Please write, as they are urging their followers to as well and knowing the loony left, they will not be pleasant comments. http://maccabean.asn.au/
There is a phone number too, remember Perth is 2 hours behind Sydney.
