The first thing that we see is the megalomaniacal nature of Soros’s philanthropic project. No corner of the globe is unaffected by his efforts. No policy area is left untouched. Major media outlets in the US have ignored the leak of thousands of emails from billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundation by the activist hacker group DCLeaks. The OSF is the vehicle through which Soros has funneled billions of dollars over the past two decades to non-profit organizations in the US and throughout the world. According to the documents, Soros has given more than $30 million to groups working for Hillary Clinton’s election in November, making him her largest single donor. So it is likely the case that the media’s support for Clinton has played some role in the mainstream media’s bid to bury the story.
It is also likely however, that at least some news editors failed to understand why the leaked documents were worth covering. Most of the information was already public knowledge. Soros’s massive funding of far-left groups in the US and throughout the world has been documented for more than a decade. But failing to see the significance of the wider story because many of the details were already known is a case of missing the forest for the trees. The DCLeaks document dump is a major story because it exposes the forest of Soros’s funding networks.
The first thing that we see is the megalomaniacal nature of Soros’s philanthropic project. No corner of the globe is unaffected by his efforts. No policy area is left untouched. On the surface, the vast number of groups and people he supports seem unrelated. After all, what does climate change have to do with illegal African immigration to Israel? What does Occupy Wall Street have to do with Greek immigration policies? But the fact is that Soros-backed projects share basic common attributes. They all work to weaken the ability of national and local authorities in Western democracies to uphold the laws and values of their nations and communities. They all work to hinder free markets, whether those markets are financial, ideological, political or scientific. They do so in the name of democracy, human rights, economic, racial and sexual justice and other lofty terms.
In other words, their goal is to subvert Western democracies and make it impossible for governments to maintain order or for societies to retain their unique identities and values. Black Lives Matter, which has received $650,000 from Soros-controlled groups over the past year, is a classic example of these efforts. Until recently, the police were universally admired in the US as the domestic equivalent of the military. BLM emerged as a social force bent on politicizing support for police.
Its central contention is that in the US, police are not a force for good, enabling society to function by maintaining law and order. Rather, police are a tool of white repression of blacks. Law enforcement in predominantly African American communities is under assault as inherently racist. BLM agitation, which has been accused of inspiring the murders of police in several US cities, has brought about two responses from rank and file police. First, they have been demoralized, as they find themselves criminalized for trying to keep their cities safe from criminals.
Second, their willingness to use force in situations that demand the use of force has diminished. Fear of criminal charges on the one hand, and public condemnation as “racists” on the other causes police to prefer inaction even when situations require that they act. The demoralization and intimidation of police is very likely to cause a steep increase in violent crimes.
Then there are Soros’s actions on behalf of illegal immigration. From the US to Europe to Israel, Soros has implemented a worldwide push to use immigration to undermine the national identity and demographic composition of Western democracies. The leaked emails show that his groups have interfered in European elections to get politicians elected who support open border policies for immigrants from the Arab world and to financially and otherwise support journalists who report sympathetically on immigrants.
Soros’s groups are on the ground enabling illegal immigrants to enter the US and Europe. They have sought to influence US Supreme Court rulings on illegal immigration from Mexico. They have worked with Muslim and other groups to demonize Americans and Europeans who oppose open borders …

New York Observer, Aug. 17, 2016
The recent hack of George Soros’ “charitable” giving revealed nothing new. The man who told journalist Steve Kroft in a televised interview that roaming the streets of Budapest with his faux godfather to confiscate the property of his fellow Jews for the Nazis was the most exhilarating time of his life has long had a problem with both his Jewish roots and the creation of a Jewish state. Most revealing in the interview was Soros’ comment that he felt no guilt about what he had done during the war years—not even survivor’s guilt, common among those who live through a catastrophe, troubled him.
So, the emergence of documentation showing how Soros funds those whose goal is to destroy the Jewish character of Israel—if not the Jewish state itself—is in keeping with the very essence of a man who as a child so identified with the aggressor that he relished the experience of working for the Nazis. Ironically, when those who want to vilify Jews need a role model that conforms to their framing of a fictional and vile Jewish character, Soros figures prominently. Yet, Soros’ pattern of funding and political backing generally resembles that of the neo-Nazis and Islamists who so conveniently find something in Soros’ Jewishness to decry.
In reality Soros, with his progressive, anti-Zionist agenda, is actually one of them. He is as much a practicing Jew as the Iranian ayatollahs; and when it comes to foreign policy, finding daylight between him and them would require a microscope. It is not surprising that Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine is hobnobbing with Alexander Soros, George’s son and intellectual heir apparent. Alexander Soros is a big fan of Tim Kaine. And so he should be. Kaine is a prominent supporter of President Obama’s ill-conceived and daily-changing Iran deal with its secret memoranda that is not only an existential threat to Israel’s existence but is also changing the balance of power in the entire Middle East. This is all the more problematic as Turkey sinks into internal chaos as a result of the unsuccessful coup, which enhances Iran’s potential as a serious rival.
This is the very essence of Soros’ policies, which have shown greater opposition to a Jew building a bathroom in Jerusalem than the ayatollahs building a nuclear weapon in Iran. Soros has repeatedly tried to hide his support for the anti-Zionist Jewish progressive. Consequently, J Street for years denied Soros’ support, which was hidden through a Hong Kong-based cutout.
Both Soros’ foundation and the New Israel Fund, another Soros beneficiary, fund Adalah, a group that trains Israeli-Arabs and Jewish progressives to wage lawfare against the Jewish state and is a strong advocate of BDS. In my own experience sitting on a panel with a representative of the New Israel Fund at a synagogue in Oakland, California, the NIF panelist vehemently and with outrage denied the very suggestion that his organization funds Adalah. Yet, it does.
Clearly, organizations like J Street and NIF share Soros’ anti-Zionist agenda. Otherwise, they would not receive funds from him. But their sharing of that agenda needs to be hidden from their fellow Jews, who might appropriately conclude that these are not organizations seeking to liberalize the Jewish state as much as they want to destroy it. The revelations from the hack of Soros’ foundation only add support to what we already know. Soros’ agenda is to destroy Israel as a Jewish state, and those who receive money from him share that agenda. Their attempts to distance themselves from Soros simply show that they cannot afford to have the Jewish community comprehend the actual nature of their intentions.
The Weekly Standard, Aug. 18, 2016
According to DC Leaks, Soros directly funds the radical New Israel Fund, Mossawa and Adalah. The New Israel Fund then in turn funds HaMoked and other groups that assist Palestinian terrorists. JerusalemOnline has recently learned that Jewish American billionaire George Soros funds groups that assist Palestinian terrorists. DC Leaks reported that the US-based New Israel Fund received 9 grants from George Soros since 2002 totaling $837,000. The New Israel Fund in turn donated $116,990 to the radical HaMoked group in 2014, whose mission is to defend terrorist families in court and to prevent the demolition of their homes.
According to Im Tirtzu, HaMoked, who has received over 11 billion shekels from foreign entities including the European Union, Germany, Norway, Finland and Belgium, uses their funds in order to defend terrorists and to submit appeals on their behalf. Among the terrorists that Hamoked assisted are the murderer of Rabbi Michael Mark in Othniel, the terrorist who murdered members of the Henkin family, the murderer of Malachi Rosenfeld, the murderers of Danny Gonen, the murderers of Aharon Bennett and Nehamia Lavi, the murderer of Baruch Mizrahi, the murderer of Shlomit Krugman, the murderers of Hadar Cohen, and the murderer of 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel.
Im Tirtzu CEO Matan Peleg stated: “Over the past 2 years, HaMoked has represented nearly every terrorist who has murdered Israelis.” According to him, foreign entities such as European governments and the New Israel Fund, which is funded by Soros, “operate in the Israeli Supreme Court by means of foreign agent organizations rather than going through the proper diplomatic channels.” Peleg called this “an attempt to alter Israeli internal policy” and stressed that it “not only harms Israeli democracy and sovereignty but bolsters terrorism.” Unfortunately, HaMoked is not the only group encouraging Palestinian terrorism benefitting from Soros money, either directly or indirectly via the New Israel Fund.
According to the Zionist Organization of America, the New Israel Fund that is backed by Soros once gave the International Solidarity Movement a stipend. The International Solidarity Movement is known for supporting “Palestinian armed struggle” and is on record justifying “the need for terrorism.” In 2002, members of the group assisted terrorists taking refuge inside the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. In 2003, ISM activist Susan Barclay stated that the group works with both Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, who are both recognized as terror organizations by the US State Department. That same year, 3 British terrorists who were associated with the ISM attacked Mike’s Place Bar in Tel Aviv, murdering 3 people. Also in 2003, an Islamic Jihad terrorist was arrested inside the ISM office in Jenin while being assisted by two ISM activists. In 2008, ISM activist Richard David Hupper was convicted of providing material aid to Hamas. ISM was also involved in the Free Gaza Flotilla, which violently clashed with the Israeli Navy. According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry website, “ISM members take an active part in illegal and violent acts directed at IDF soldiers. At time, their acts are under the auspices of Palestinian terror organizations."
According to Algeimener, the New Israel Fund that is backed by Soros provided Social Television with $239,480 between 2010 and 2015. Social Television claimed that a terrorist who stabbed a 15-year-old boy and was shot fleeing the scene was a “victim of terrorism.” This was not an isolated incident. The New Israel Fund that is backed by Soros also funds the 972 Magazine blog …

The Hill, Oct. 31, 2014
When the state of Israel buried three teenage boys kidnapped and brutally murdered by Hamas militants last summer, Rabbi Dov Zinger spoke of the heartache of the nation and Jews throughout world. Remembering the boys, he brought home the old quip, “two Jews, get three opinions,” declaring “two Jews, three opinions, one heart.”
The slain children of Israel brought the Jewish people together. Until recently the same could be said for the safety and security of the Jewish state. Even though Jews tend to regard disagreement and debate as a sport, the point of contention was existential: how to secure Israel in peace. The only rule of the U.S. version of the game was that Israel would never be a partisan issue. Republicans and Democrats, Conservatives and Liberals should always support Israel’s right to exist and defend herself because it’s the right thing to do.
However, somebody has been trying to change the rules and in the process is creating a storm of anti-Israel sentiment blowing in from the Left. Since the self-proclaimed “pro-Israel, pro-peace” political action committee J Street joined the game, the cardinal rule has been broken. Israel has been made into a partisan cause – used as cover to elect the most anti-Israel candidates that donations can buy.
It’s no secret that some of the most vehemently anti-Israel money is behind J Street, most notably billionaire George Soros who once referred to his teenage years confiscating the property of Jews as "the happiest time of my life." Add the wallets of donors such as Genevieve Lynch, former board member of The National Iranian American Council, also known as the voice of the mullahs in Tehran, and Mehmet Celebi, who co-produced the abhorrently anti-Semitic film Valley of the Wolves, and you have a money trail that resembles funding for Hamas, not anything that would support the safety and security of Jews.
But in a world that still itches to scapegoat the Jews at every opportunity possible, common sense and decency will never prevail. Former Midwest political director for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Rabbi Jonathan Greenberg, noted, “J Street was never intended to be a pro-Israel organization. Its purpose was to give [founder and president] Jeremy Ben-Ami a seat at the Progressive roundtable of the Democrat Party.”
Greenberg continued, “Ben-Ami has achieved his goal. But I must admit I never thought J Street would move as far to the left as they have. They are in bed with some real shady characters.” Advocates for the Jewish state have failed to fully expose where J Street’s money goes. They continue to scream George Soros at every opportunity – focused on incoming dollars. But J Street’s own website reveals its anti-Israel agenda – financial output – supporting elected officials and candidates that support U.S. taxpayers funding Hamas, contravening Israel’s basic right to defend herself.
Over the summer when Israel was saving countless civilian lives with the Iron Dome, the candidates J Street endorsed were the minority voices saying no to Israeli security. Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Walter Jones (R-N.C.) – all J Street-endorsed officials – voted against funding. Another eight J Street endorsees abstained from supporting the Jewish state. J Street supported Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) who recently defended Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and advocated continuing U.S. taxpayer funding for Hamas as part of the Palestinian Unity Government. J Street claims on its website to endorse only candidates …

A J Street Man On The Democratic Ticket: Michael Wilner, The Jerusalem Post, Aug. 8, 2016— The rise of Tim Kaine, long aligned with J Street's worldview, is a significant milestone for the young lobby of a two-state solution. For seven and a half years, the policy advocates of J Street have felt blessed. Lobbying for diplomatic flexibility with Iran and for a tougher US line against Israel’s settlement activity, the liberal Jewish-American group has been repeatedly bolstered by a president who, prior to taking office, had a short track record on which to base support.

A Soros Plan, A Marginalized Israel: Eli Lake, Bloomberg, Aug. 16, 2016— After the election of Barack Obama in 2009, the George Soros organization saw an opportunity to weaken the pro-Israel lobby's influence in Washington. So his Open Society Foundations began an ambitious project in 2009 to persuade Europe and the U.S. to "hold Israel accountable" for violations of international law.
