Shame on the UJA, Mechon Hadar and Jim Joseph Foundation for aiding & abetting BDS supporter.
Alisa Doctoroff is President of UJA-Federation –- and a major supporter of the anti-Israel New Israel Fund, which supports BDS and other unrelated anti-Israel activities. As Newsweek discussed the anti-NIF campaign today, we maintain that NIF “gives money to groups that work tirelessly to delegitimize Israel, undermining the soldiers protecting Israel, and pushing war crimes tribunals and sanctions against Israel in world courts.”
Doctoroff has many friends and protectors who support the New Israel Fund. They are wrong.
Let’s consider the words of Caroline Glick on this traitorous organization: “Since the Palestinians began their terror war against Israel in September 2000, NIF-sponsored groups have worked steadily to intimidate political leaders, law enforcement officials and military commanders to toe their anti-Zionist line. In the wake of the PLO-incited riots in the Israeli Arab sector in October 2000, the overtly anti-Zionist NIF-funded Adalah group agitated for the formation of the Orr Commission. Charged with investigating the police who quelled the rioting rather than the rioters whose violence forced the prolonged closure of major highways to Jewish traffic throughout the country, the Orr Commission had a devastating impact on the police’s morale and organizational culture.
As for the IDF, NIF-funded organizations have played a key role in organizing the weekly riots at flashpoints like Ni’ilin and Bi’ilin and in the recent expansion of these riots to other places in Judea and Samaria like Neveh Tzuf. Supported by anti-Israel activists from Europe and the US, these riots have had a devastating impact on the IDF’s morale and its ability to defend Israeli communities.
The NIF-funded pro-Palestinian group B’Tselem provides the rioters with video cameras with which they regularly shoot distorted footage. Their canned films portray Israeli civilians seeking to defend themselves from the rioters as attackers. They portray IDF soldiers trying to keep order and protect Israeli civilians as violent bullies. B’Tselem gives these films to its supporters in the Israel media, which broadcast them as credible footage and demand that the IDF open investigations against its officers for carrying out lawful orders. On the defensive, the IDF is compelled to curtail its operations and Israeli civilians, now demonized, are viewed as legitimate targets for terror attacks. One recent film of the rioting outside Neveh Tzuf posted on YouTube shows border policemen simply fleeing the scene and leaving the residents of the community to fend for themselves.”
Alisa Doctoroff continues in her role at UJA-Federation — shamefully. Even UJA must be repulsed and must fire her. Organizations such as Mechon Hadar tolerate Doctoroff – how can Mechon Hadar allow a board member to support financially organizations that also support BDS?
They are not alone – She is also a board member of Jim Joseph Foundation.
Doctoroff recently said: “one of the most impactful experiences on her Encounter trip was her home-stay with a Palestinian family.” She and the family’s son talked late into the night, poring over maps and talking about non-violent activism. Gross and conduct unbecoming of a Jewish leader. Doctoroff supports Palestinian non-violent activism.
P.S.: Karen R. Adler of Jewish Communal Fund – We feel the same way about you. We will target donors of Jewish Communal Fund next if they don’t cut off New Israel Fund.
