Our friends over at WND.com reported this week that among those in the Obama Administration seeking to harm Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was “a State Department-financed nonprofit based in Israel currently engaged in a major effort to get young Arab citizens to the voting booths in the Israeli election.”
“As WND reported last month, the U.S. has not been standing on the sidelines when it comes to mobilizing the all-important Arab vote. In an interview with WND, Amnon Beeri-Sulitzeanu, co-executive director of the Abraham Fund, maintained that his group’s voter participation activities are entirely nonpartisan and that his organization does not endorse any political party. The Abraham Fund works to encourage Arab participation in the Israeli economic, cultural and civic arenas. Its slogan is: “Building a shared future for Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens.”
In 2010, the State Department provided the Abraham Fund a $999,715 three-year grant for an education initiative in cooperation with Israel’s Ministry of Education. Another part of the grant was designated to a project with the Israeli security services aimed at fostering closer Arab-Jewish ties.
Beeri-Sulitzeanu told WND the U.S. government funds are not being utilized for the voter-participation drive. “The initiative is being paid for by private donations from donors interested in Arab participation,” he said.
He acknowledged, however, that “some (money for the project) comes from our core funding at the Abraham Fund.” “Since our workers are getting paid anyway, some of their job is dedicated to the vote project,” he said.
A source close to the Abraham Fund said the financing for the voter participation project came in large part from private wealthy American donors. The same source told WND the voter-participation drive was encouraged by staffers from the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.”
Reread what the Abraham Fund says: “The initiative is being paid for by private donations from donors interested in Arab participation,” and listed as a bridge builder is Alisa Doctoroff, who also supports New Israel Fund, the extremist, radical organization which supports boycotts against Israel.
These are the shameful traitors of the American Jewish establishment.
