The State of Israel is under assault by a delegitimacy campaign – led by The New Israel Fund – which includes regular slander of the Israel Defense Forces and calls for a boycott against Israel. This campaign is partially financed by Jewish money, from American foundations and private donors who support Israeli organizations that are active in this campaign.
No matter how much they complain, we will continue this campaign as long as they continue to harm the State of Israel. Alisa Doctoroff, Karen R. Adler, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, The Jacob & Hilda Blaustein Foundation, Joel & Julia Greenblatt, Joan and Robert Arnow Fund and others must stop funding the hatred of the New Israel Fund.
Many organizations supported by the New Israel Fund play an active role in promoting the delegitimization of Israel in general and the IDF in particular. In this campaign, each organization operates in its own field (legal, media, etc.), often in cooperation with other NIF organizations. This combined effort poses a real danger to Israel’s Zionist vision.
The NIF has broad influence in a wide range of fields in Israel and operates in various ways to fulfill its goals, mainly via establishing and funding social organizations. Some of the NIF’s organizations also receive budgets from the European Union and foreign governments. A few NIF organizations even receive indirect grants from Arab countries and Palestinian funds.
While The Forward likes to blame a few people, its inaccurate – criticism of the New Israel Fund is across the political spectrum. The exposure of the involvement and activities of the NIF organizations in the delegitimization campaign against Israeli state and IDF policies has drawn harsh public criticism from Knesset ministers, Knesset members, senior IDF officials (such as Maj. Gen. (res.) Yaakov Amidror), journalists and researchers, including author and researcher Edwin Black, who wrote a book on the problematic activities of several NIF organizations, and the detrimental results of these activities.
Recently, the ruling Likud Party refused to associate with them, and Taglit-Birthright Israel, which held joint activities with NIF organizations for many years, has also cancelled its partnership with them.
Furthermore, since Operation Cast Lead in January 2009, Israeli organizations and bodies have joined calls for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel and Israeli companies, and sometimes these calls have even been led by Israeli organizations. Prominent among the Israeli organizations and activists that support and promote the boycott against Israel are organizations and activists affiliated with the NIF.
We urge everyone to stand against the New Israel Fund and their donors who harm Israel. This is a public service announcement to oppose the actions of NIF donors, including: David Hochberg, The Jewish Communal Fund,Edith Everett, Rosenzweig Coopersmith Foundation, Max and Andre Leichtag, Geoffrey Biddle, David Eisner, President and CEO of Repair the World, The Leichtag Foundation, The Kathryn Ames Foundation, and so many others.
