Emails outed today reveal that the world’s most dangerous billionaire, George Soros, has as an objective “challenging Israel’s racist and anti-democratic policies” in international forums, in part by questioning Israel’s reputation as a democracy.
The Jerusalem Post today reported that:
Open Society, which was founded and is chaired by the hedge fund billionaire and philanthropist, gave close to $10 million since 2001 to groups advancing the rights of Arab Israelis, with an emphasis in recent years on countering what one document says are Israel’s “restrictive measures” against minorities. In recent years the radicalization of public opinion and consecutive Israeli right wing governments have resulted in more restrictive measures against Palestinians within Israel,” a Sept. 1, 2015 review of Open Society’s Arab Regional Office’s work said.
It cites as an example the Jewish Nation State bill, advanced by its sponsors to entrench Israel’s Jewish status, but decried by some Arab Israelis as further marginalizing non-Jewish minorities. The bill has yet to pass. Among achievements listed in the Sept. 1 document, the Arab Regional Office includes increased advocacy by “Palestinian citizens of Israel,” or PCI, in international forums, challenging Israel’s “racist” policies in the face of its reputation as a democracy.
The document advocates the “development of a more organized and efficient PCI advocacy and presence in international forums (UN, EU, US) especially in light of the increasingly limited domestic avenues available for seeking justice.”
The document continues that “There have been a number of successes in challenging Israel’s racist and anti-democratic policies in the international arena and influencing EU-Israel bilateral negotiations."
A document dated August 6, 2015 “details Open Society’s Arab Regional Office funding of civil society groups in Israel since 2001, amounting to $9,591,801. The group obtaining the most money is Adalah, a legal rights group for Arab Israelis, which received a total of $2,688,561 over the period. Another grantee is the New Israel Fund, a clearinghouse for Israeli civil rights groups, which received $837,500 from 2002-2015.”
The emails were posted in by DC Leaks, a group Bloomberg News claims to be connected to Russian intelligence operatives.
Soros donated $1 million to Priorities USA Action, a super-PAC dedicated to supporting Hillary Clinton, and is a major Hillary backer. Reports indicate that Soros has given over $7 billion to left-wing organizations, including having been a major donor to Occupy Wall Street. Former United States Senator Joe Lieberman noted that the billionaire's views on America are “so negative, so critical, and so often anti-American."
Soros has said that “America is the gravest threat to world freedom,” and that “the main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.”
Soros clearly is anti-Israel, which is a democratic, free-market economy – and that goes hand-in-hand with his comment that America is the world's gravest threat.”
