“AFDI Rolls Out New Ad Campaign to Expose Jewish Leaders Who Fund BDS”, 04 March 2015, By JLNJ Staff
The human rights advocacy group, The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) has announced a new ad campaign to expose Jewish groups and leaders who are funding Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns. This campaign is intended to bring awareness to their activities and urge them to stop harming the Jewish State of Israel.
Jewish leaders and philanthropists including UJA-Federation President Alisa Doctoroff, Karen R. Adler (President of the Jewish Communal Fund and JCRC Board Member), David Hochberg, Carole and Saul Zabar, Sally Gottesman, Edith Everett and others are prominent donors to The New Israel Fund, an organization which funds BDS and other anti-Israel initiatives.
Of particular concern is the fact that Doctoroff uses her position at UJA to promote the agenda of the New Israel Fund, a hard-left organization that is aiding and abetting BDS initiatives.
AFDI’s President Pamela Geller said in a statement: “We must shame these philanthropists who fund BDS groups – particularly the New Israel Fund. An intense public campaign has begun. We will continue to demand that any American Jew who supports the New Israel Fund withdraw such funding. The New Israel Fund must be ostracized by the Jewish community.”
These ads will make their debut on 100 buses in New York, with new ads appearing every month. AFDI plans to run them also in other cities where Jews are being targeted by BDS initiatives, including Chicago, Boston, and others.
