Report – Evangelicals for Hire: Israel Paid U.S. Christian Zionists to Push Propaganda

More than half of all American states have passed laws designed to combat the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel. No advocacy group was more important to this push than the Israel Allies Foundation, an American non-profit that supports a network of pro-Israel legislators across the globe.

It was the IAF that in 2014 connected a South Carolina politician with an Israeli legal scholar who drafted the first bill to ban state agencies from contracting with entities that boycott Israel.

After that law passed in South Carolina in 2015, the IAF successfully lobbied for nearly-identical anti-BDS bills in 25 other states, including Florida, Pennsylvania and Arizona. Now the group is backing another bill, which has already passed in South Carolina and Florida and been introduced in six more states, which would change civil-rights codes to define antisemitism to include anti-Zionism.

Public records obtained by The Forward show that the Israeli government approved a grant of more than $100,000 to the Israel Allies Foundation in 2019. The IAF has not disclosed this or any previous Israeli grants to the United States government, in possible violation of laws requiring American political advocacy groups to disclose foreign-government contributions.

The IAF, which reported $1.4 million in revenue in 2018 and features a testimonial on its website from Vice President Mike Pence, did not respond to four emails seeking comment.

It is one of 11 American groups that received Israeli government funds, according to the documents, which show that the Israeli Ministry of Strategic Affairs and a quasi-governmental organization it created have given at least $6.6 million to U.S. organizations since 2018. These grants, along with millions more that went to groups in Europe, Latin America, Africa and Israel itself, were to further the country’s public diplomacy efforts, particularly against BDS.

The Israeli government’s gifts to pro-Israel American entities — including more than $1 million each to Christians United for Israel and Aish Hatorah’s Hasbara Fellowships — were publicly unknown until the last few weeks, after a politician not from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s party took over the ministry and dropped its longstanding stance against releasing its public records.

According to the Israeli documents, most of the grants to the American organizations were intended to send those groups’ members — and selected guests — on chartered trips to Israel, which often included meetings with Israeli officials. Spending these funds abroad, rather than inside the United States, may have allowed them to avoid onerous federal disclosure requirements designed to thwart foreign influence campaigns.

But documents also suggest that some of those trips included instructions for pro-Israel advocacy back home — in statehouses and on college campuses — which legal experts say may expose not just the recipient groups but also anyone who went on their trips to fines and even prosecution for violating disclosure rules.

The documents, which include financial spreadsheets, government memoranda and the minutes of official meetings, were released after a Freedom of Information Act request by the Israeli Freedom of Information Movement and the Israeli news website The Seventh Eye, and shared with the Forward.

Twitter Bans Jewish Star of David in Profile Images – Deems it “Hateful Imagery”

In 2014, Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year.”

Billoo also retweeted radical comments from CAIR official Dawud Walid from Michigan and radical Islamist poet Remi Kanazi.

In January 2019 The Wall Street Journal reported that Zahra Billoo was directing Facebook and Twitter on censoring conservative voices.

Billoo had an exceptional hatred for Jewish conservative Laura Loomer and pushed Facebook and Twitter to delete Laura from their platform.

As Jordan Schachtel reported at Conservative Review — Zahra Billoo has numerous tweets that violate so-called Twitter and Facebook standards for hate speech.

YouTube Bans Christian Broadcaster TruNews For ‘Hate Speech’

Christian pastor Rick Wiles’ channel TruNews was permanently banned from Google-owned YouTube on Thursday for “hate speech.”

“It was only a matter of time, YouTube finally canceled our channel,” Wiles said on his show Thursday. “What was our crime? They accused us of hate speech.”

“Of course, there is no such thing as hate speech — it’s a crime that was invented by the political left several decades ago,” he said. “What it really means is free speech that somebody doesn’t like.”

Wiles said the “final nail in the coffin” according to YouTube was their February 12 interview with Israeli News Live’s Steve and Jana Ben-Nun titled, “Christianity Vs. Evangelical Zionism.”

Wiles said he got hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of free bandwidth off YouTube and plans to conduct “business as usual” on their own website.

“Nothing they do to stop us will succeed, in fact, the more they try to destroy us the more God will bless us, the gates of hell will not prevail against his Church,” Wiles said.

“YouTube has finally banned #antiSemitic outlet TruNews, and we hope other social media platforms will follow suit,” Anti-Defamation League head Jonathan Greenblatt said Thursday on Twitter.

The Anti-Defamation League last year put TruNews on what many have called a “hit list” of 30 Christian and right-wing channels they demanded YouTube ban for “anti-Semitism.”

Greenblatt said in the past that the ADL works with Google and Facebook to “tweak their algorithms” and “redirect” searches through AI to protect people’s right to “not be harassed or hated.”

YouTube’s decision to ban TruNews came one week after they decided to permanently ban Christian conservative commentator Nick Fuentes for “hate speech.”

YouTube appears to be following a policy paper I covered from “researchers” led by professor Neil Johnson of George Washington University released in August which called for a slow but steady stream of mass bannings of right-wing dissidents on social media to avoid “inflaming the entire hive” by generating too much pushback.

The paper recommended tech giants ban “small clusters” of dissidents “at random” to “weaken the cluster over time without inflaming the entire hive.”

Hanukkah Machete Attack in NY

5 people were stabbed after a black male entered Rabbi Rottenburg’s Shul, located in the Forshay neighborhood in Monsey, New York, and pulled out a machete.

Notably, the attack occurred on the last day of Hannukah.

As VosIzNeias.com reports, the alleged assailant pulled off the cover and stabbed at least 5 people.

One of the victims was stabbed in the chest. Two of the victims of the attack were taken into hospital as critical. One of the victims was stabbed at least 6 times. The fifth/least severe case had a cut in his hand.

The perpetrator then ran out and escaped in a vehicle. His plates were spotted before he left (HPT-5757 per the person who saw it and we confirmed it with him directly – a Gray Nissan Sentra).

The attack occurred at a rabbi’s house in the religious community — the latest attack on Orthodox Jews near New York City. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has come under increasing criticism for the attacks, especially after several suspects in recent violent antisemitic attacks were released as courts have rushed to comply with the state’s new “bail reform” legislation, which is supported by the de Blasio administration, and which takes full effect Jan 1.

On Sunday broadcast of MSNBC’s “Live,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo commented, “We tend to treat these situations as isolated episodes, but really if we just connect the dots, we have a pattern of hate in this nation that is only getting worse. We’ve seen almost weekly attacks on people based on race, color, creed. It’s hate-motivated. Apparently, there was another shooting in Texas today in a church. We’ve seen attacks against African-Americans, Latinos, LGBTQ community. And let’s call it what it is and let government act because this can destroy this nation. It is corrosive. It’s an American cancer.”

He continued, “It starts at the top, and then it goes on to a point where it becomes viral across this nation. And it is now viral. And you see it coming to the surface in different manifestations from coast to coast. And we’re comforted treated it as isolated episodes, but there’s a pattern to all of this, and it spells hate.”

De Blasio condemned the attack, but also came under immediate criticism for not doing enough about antisemitism:

Despite the SPLC constantly fanning the flames of hysteria over domestic extremism, they remained completely silent about the domestic terror attack against Hasidic Jews, presumably because it was carried out by a non-white person.

Monsey mass stabbing suspect Grafton Thomas, 37, was arrested “at least seven times” since 2001 according to a report from the Washington Post:

A man barged into a rabbi’s home with a long knife and stabbed five people Saturday night in New York state, officials and witnesses say, shattering Hanukkah celebrations and renewing fears of attacks on the country’s Jewish community.

The suspect in custody, identified by police as 37-year-old Grafton E. Thomas of Greenwood Lake, N.Y., has pleaded not guilty to five counts of attempted murder and one count of burglary, according to the Associated Press.

[…] Local news outlets reported that Ciganek said in court that her client had no criminal record. But according to a security official briefed on the case, Thomas has been arrested at least seven times since 2001, on offenses that include assault, resisting arrest, killing or injuring a police animal, driving while under the influence, possessing controlled substances and menacing a police or peace officer. He appears to have received a jail sentence only for a 2013 arrest for possession of a controlled substance.

Officials have yet to announce a motive in the stabbing in Monsey, about 30 miles north of Manhattan, but state leaders were quick to denounce the attack as an act of anti-Semitism.

Trump Signs Exec. Order Broadening Anti-Semitism to Include Holocaust Denial and Criticism of Israel

It’s official. If you find the dispossession, murder, torture, and slow-motion ethnic cleansing of Palestinians disgusting and criminal, you’re an antisemite. If you organize like-minded folks and urge others to boycott Israeli products, you may end up in prison. It’s OK to criticize official enemies—Iran, Syria, Venezuela, North Korea, Russia, China—for imaginary crimes such as chemical weapons attacks in Syria and Russia’s meddling in elections rigged and prearranged by a hidden elite, but you are flirting with serious danger when you talk truth about Israel. Trump worked around this scheme of prearranged elections and this has resulted in mass mental illness now known as the “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” 

In America, the state and its media have done an effective job of disappearing wars and downplaying or straight out ignoring the Pentagon’s heavy record of lies and evasion. 

“Top Defense Department officials have largely brushed aside questions surrounding reports that U.S. officials lied about progress in the 18-year Afghanistan war, with experts saying it’s unlikely the documents will change the administration’s approach to the long-running conflict,” The Hill reported earlier this week. 

America’s longest war—a bonanza for death merchants—was based on a stupendous lie: Osama bin Laden was hiding out in Afghanistan and the Taliban were intransigent about turning him over, so war was the only viable option, according to the official history. It’s never mentioned that the Taliban—a creation of the CIA and Pakistani intelligence—offered to turn over the Saudi, but the Bush neocons refused the offer. The slate needed to be scrubbed clean if a gas pipeline was to traverse Afghanistan. The invasion was planned before the events of September 11, 2001. 

In the lead-up to the illegal invasion of Iraq, we were sold a passel of lies. First, foremost, and most absurdly: Saddam Hussein planned to attack America with weapons of mass destruction he did not possess. Hussein had an arsenal of chemical and biological weapons, though—sold to Iraq by US corporations—but these WMDs were reserved for internal threats, for instance, the Kurds. Hussein used his formidable police state to crack down on the Shia majority and other perceived threats. He had absolutely no interest in attacking America. 

Iraq was invaded for the sake of Israel. It was invaded and its civilian infrastructure destroyed and its children poisoned and murdered for a simple reason—Saddam Hussein held up Palestinian fighters as heroes. He wrote checks to the families of the dead. 

In 2003, as the Iraq invasion was underway, the BBC wrote:

The [Palestinian Arab Liberation Front] estimated that Iraq had paid out $35m to Palestinian families since the current uprising began in September 2000.

Saddam’s avowed support for the Palestinians, and his missile attacks on Israel during the Gulf War, have won him wide backing in the territories.

This is the real, unstated reason the US government invaded Iraq a second time. It had nothing to do with weapons of mass destruction Bush couldn’t find under his desk. Like Hillary Clinton chortling over the brutal anal rape (avec bayonet) and murder of Gaddafi in Libya, Bush made a joke out of not finding WMDs in Iraq. His deadpan skit read from notes had the official propaganda scribblers at the Radio & Television Correspondents Association Dinner in 2004 rollicking in laughter. 

Ever since its “war of independence” (ethnic cleansing and mass murder in Palestine that made refugees of thousands of Palestinians), Israel has gone to war with its neighbors.

During the 1950s and 60s, Israel conducted “reprisal operations” against Syria, Egypt, and Jordan (the admitted tactic was “blood cost,” killing as many people as possible, supposedly to avert future attacks), the “crisis” after Egypt nationalized the Suez Canal, the Six-Day War (a war to steal land), the “War of Attrition” (to prevent Egypt from reclaiming the Sinai captured during the previous war), the “Yom Kipper War” ( Egypt and Syria attempted to regain the Sinai and the Golan Heights), the seriously misattributed “Palestinian insurgency in South Lebanon” (the so-called Operation Litani was basically a war designed to steal and divert Lebanon’s water to Israel; this invasion is responsible for the formation of Hezbollah) and the resultant 1982 Lebanon War (to steal more land and set-up a “security zone,” using feeble PLO attacks as a predicate), the first and second Intifada, yet another invasion of Lebanon in 2006 (defeated by Hezbollah), numerous attacks on the civilian population of the Gaza Strip (Operation Pillar of Defense, Operation Protective Edge), and ongoing terror attacks and assassination operations against medics, journalists, and activists. The endless terror campaigns waged by settlers against Palestinians should also be included. 

Dare mention any of this and you will be designated an antisemite. It is impermissible and will soon be illegal to criticize Israel. It is hatred of Jews to oppose the billions of dollars doled out to the Israeli state year after year without the consent of the American people. 

“Among the world’s nations, the United States stands out as the most devoted backer of Israel,” writes Mark Weber, a scurrilous antisemite according to the SPLC. 

With very few exceptions, even those American politicians and media figures who might sometimes criticize a particular Israeli policy are, nonetheless, vigorous supporters of Israel—and not just as a country, but as an emphatically Jewish ethnic-religious state. In spite of occasional disputes over specific policies, the US continues, as it has for years, to provide Israel with crucial military, diplo­matic and financial backing, including more than $3 billion each year in aid.

Benjamin Ginsberg, a Jewish author (The Fatal Embrace: Jews and the State), describes the outsized influence of the Jewish community, observations that have undoubtedly tagged him as a “self-hating Jew” and an extremist in league with white supremacists and other haters (now that rational discussion and indisputable facts are synonymous with hate). 

Since the 1960s, Jews have come to wield considerable influence in American economic, cultural, intellectual and political life. Jews played a central role in American finance during the 1980s, and they were among the chief beneficiaries of that decade’s corporate mergers and reorganizations. Today, though barely two percent of the nation’s population is Jewish, close to half its billionaires are Jews. The chief executive officers of the three major television networks and the four largest film studios are Jews, as are the owners of the nation’s larg­est newspaper chain and the most influential single newspaper, the New York Times… The role and influence of Jews in Ameri­can politics is equally marked…

It is disturbing to witness the almost complete lack of interest on the part of the American people to put an end to America’s involvement in Israel’s wars, fought and paid for by clueless US citizens. 

In the past, it was primarily the Left that opposed US wars and interventions. Now many on the Left, previously opposed to Republican president Bush’s invasions, believe this psychopathic behavior is somehow wedded to “democracy” and humanitarianism, especially if the wars are waged by Democrats such as Barack Obama—that is, if the average propagandized American bothers to think about war at all. 

This disappearing act is only possible because the Left, what I call the “establishment Left,” is on a short leash and knows not to bite the hand that feeds with grants and stipends. 

Beyond a small number of principled leftists and libertarians, there is virtually no opposition to Americans fighting and dying in Israel’s wars. 

But that silence is hardly enough. Now the state is looking to prosecute “antisemites,” aka critics of Israel and a hijacked US foreign policy. 

Fox News:

On Wednesday, President Trump signed the executive order, which broadened the federal government’s definition of anti-Semitism to include the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition, which can include criticism of Israel, and instructed it to be used in enforcing laws against discrimination on college campuses under Title VI.

The “Working Definition of Antisemitism” put out by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance states “[m]anifestations might include the targeting of the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity.” 

Moreover, discussing and criticizing the victimization of the Palestinian people by the Israeli state is antisemitism. “Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor,” is also described as hatred. 

There is no paucity of facts on this latter point. Last year Israel passed what can only be regarded as a national race law that designates all non-Jews as second class citizens. 

“From now on, two types of blood exist in Israel: Jewish blood and non-Jewish blood, on the law books as well,” writes Gideon Levy for Haaretz. (Hitler’s racism was also based on blood.) 

The price of these two types of blood is also different. Jewish blood is priceless, it must be protected in every possible way. Non-Jewish blood is terrifyingly cheap, it can be shed like water. A situation that existed until now only de facto, with different standards and punishments for Jews and others, is from today by court decree.

Seventy years of nationalism and racism toward the victims is now receiving its appropriate legal backing. The nation-state law, which they said was only declarative, in the correct interpretation of [Jerusalem District Court Judge Moshe Drori], has earned its true meaning: The basic law for the superiority of Jewish blood. From now on, Israel has race law.

This “race law” is apparently OK with touchy-feely establishment liberals, while at the same time they rail against imaginary racism by “toxic white males” against state-sanctioned protected groups based on skin pigmentation and sexual orientation. 

As for the real lefties—most prominently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib—they know Israel is a racist state. They will, of course, eventually be removed from Congress. 

Although I disagree completely with their proposed solutions to political and social problems, I agree with “The Squad” on Israel and its violent ethnic cleansing, assassination of activists, murder of children, and arrogant demand an economically besieged American public not only pay for it all but keep their mouths shut if they disagree, lest they find themselves in prison, forever marked as an antisemitic, a media exaggerated version of Hitler and the Nazis.
