An Arab extremist group has submitted an pressing petition to Israel’s Supreme Court, demanding that Palestinians be permitted to rescue Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists who could also be trapped in a terror tunnel bombed by Israel.
And guess who’s funding the petitioners? American Jews.
The group attempting to avoid wasting the terrorists is named Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel. What the rescue of Hamas and Islamic Jihad murderers in Gaza has to do with “Arab minority rights in Israel” is anyone’s guess.
But that doesn’t appear to trouble Adalah’s many donors. In 2016 and 2017, the Swiss Foreign Ministry gave Adalah $165,000. Prominent charitable organizations in Belgium, Germany, Holland, Spain, and England even have contributed generously lately.
One of the biggest donors to Adalah is the liberal American Jewish group New Israel Fund. According to NGO Monitor, New Israel Fund contributed greater than $2 million to Adalah from 2008 to 2016.
It’s not as if Adalah ordinarily is an inexpensive, average group and this petition to avoid wasting terrorists is a few sort of aberration. On the opposite. Adalah’s report of extremist exercise is lengthy sufficient to fill a number of submitting cupboards at New Israel Fund headquarters.
In different phrases, the oldsters at NIF have at all times identified precisely what they had been getting with Adalah. Yet they carry on signing the checks.
Just this previous June, Nadia Ben-Youssef, director of the Adalah Justice Project, spoke at an occasion within the U.S. House of Representatives, throughout which she accused Israel of oppressing Palestinian kids via “persistent human rights violations, systematic impunity, discrimination and a hyper-militarized environment.”
And that wasn’t her first go to to Capitol Hill. Two years in the past, Ben-Youssef spoke at a Congressional briefing on Israel’s use of American weapons within the combat in opposition to terrorists in Gaza. Ben-Youssef declared that Israel is responsible of “indiscriminate war crimes.”
The seemingly tireless Adalah fanatics even helped draft the notorious anti-Israel part of the Black Lives Matter platform, through which Israel was described as “an apartheid state committing genocide.”
That’s the attention-grabbing factor about Adalah. It doesn’t conceal its agenda. It brazenly and proudly incites in opposition to Israel. No, it’s the New Israel Fund that’s doing the hiding.
I acquired one in all NIF’s mbad-mailing solicitations the opposite day. It declared: “Please rush your gift to the New Israel Fund so we can keep working with organizations on the ground in Israel to win victories for minorities, for the voiceless, and for the powerless.”
The letter was accompanied by a shiny brochure itemizing the highlights of New Israel Fund actions from 1979 to the current. Buried deep within the lengthy listing was a pbading reference to Adalah as one of many NIF-supported “human rights organizations” that acted in 2006 to drive Israel to pay extra compensation to “Palestinians in the Occupied Territories” who had been harmed by the Israeli military.
The brochure had no reference to Adalah attempting to incite the U.S. Congress in opposition to Israel. No reference to Adalah selling BDS or spreading lies about Israel being “racist” and an “apartheid state.” No reference to Adalah’s function in trying to influence African-Americans to hate Israel.
Adalah shouldn’t be preventing “for minorities, for the voiceless, and for the powerless,” because the New Israel Fund claims. Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists aren’t a persecuted minority. They aren’t “voiceless” or “powerless.” They have a voice via their many supporters all over the world, they usually have the facility of their missiles, weapons, and knives.
And when a couple of Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists get trapped in a tunnel they had been going to make use of to homicide Israeli kids, they know they will rely on Adalah, and its American Jewish donors, to trip to their rescue.
