It has already been established that Soros has given Hillary ‘orders’ on foreign policy and relations. Since it’s clear that Soros is no fan of Israel, is it safe to say Hillary has the same sentiments?
Over this past weekend there was another leak of a famous person’s email documents, although the victim was not a politician and the leaker was not Wikileaks. The victim was George Soros, billionaire donor to Democratic Party causes, who is often referred to as the “man who broke the bank of England” in the 1992 Sterling crisis. During that crisis, he made $1 billion in one day at the expense of British taxpayers.
The hack wasn’t of Soros himself but from multiple Soros-controlled organizations, the largest source of documents was Soros’ “Open Society Foundation.”.
An important revelation included in the document dump is the Open Society Foundation’s funding of anti-Israel NGOs. One file, “the President’s Office,” contains the anti-Israel files.
The portfolio review document of the Palestine/Israel International Advocacy Section of the president’s office file, explains that they pick organizations whose focus was “rooted in human rights and international law.” At least human rights and international law as determined by George Soros.
They group the organizations in three categories
- With regard to Israel’s violations in the occupied territories: The fight against impunity/accountability in relation to violations of international human rights and humanitarian law committed in the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; Freedom of movement and lifting the closure of the Gaza Strip; The reversal of Israel’s settlement policy; The rights of Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli prisons
- With regards to Israeli violations in Israel: Promote respect for the rights of the Palestinian Arab Minority; Promote freedom of association and expression, with a particular focus on attacks against Israeli CSOs; Promote the rights of refugees in Israel.
- With regards to the Palestinian Authority’s HR violations: Promote respect by the PA of its HR obligations in both the West Bank and Gaza.
Notice they were able to concoct all those violations by Israel and couldn’t find more than that one violation by the PA? Five minutes at Palestinian Media Watch will give them a list of anti-Israel incitements. Or a few minutes reading The Religion of Peace would demonstrate all of the terrorist attacks waged by Fatah, the party which runs the PA.
Based on the organizations that received funding, Mr. Soros’ Open Society Foundation achieved its goals.
For example, since 2001 the Soros network has given $2,688,561 to Adalah. According to NGO Monitor, Adelah describes itself as “independent human rights organization.” Adelah has been instrumental in accusing Israel of war crimes on numerous occasions, including contributing charges to the now-disgraced Goldstone Report and the fake 2002 report of an Israeli massacre in Jenin. Adalah has also called on governments the world over to sever or downgrade their diplomatic relations with Israel.
Why would Soros a Hungarian Jew who lived through the Holocaust spend so much money and effort to de-legitimize the Jewish State? The best explanation comes from my late friend and teacher Barry Rubin:
On November 7, 2003, almost five years after the television interview, Soros made a rare appearance at a pro-Jewish Jewish event, a conference of the Jewish Funders Network. Asked about antisemitism in Europe, Soros responded that it was the result of the policies of Israel and the United States, and particularly of President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. “If we change that direction, then antisemitism also will diminish,” he said.
Once again, his words led somewhat in the wrong direction as some of the attendees were outraged. After all, blaming Jews for antisemitism is an old argument of antisemites. But to focus on that is to miss the point.
“I’m also very concerned about my own role because the new antisemitism holds that the Jews rule the world,” he explained. He knew he is personally vulnerable to such charges. After all, Soros added, “As an unintended consequence of my actions,” he said, “I also contribute to that image,” no doubt referring to an incident of a few weeks previously when Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad referred to Soros personally in saying, “Jews rule the world by proxy.”
So Soros must prove to the enemies of the Jews that he is not someone they should see as an enemy. By fighting Jewish interests he can claim to diminish antisemitism while also protecting his own interests.
What did Soros say was the main lesson he had learned on those streets in Nazi-controlled 1944 Hungary? “That one should think ahead. One should understand and–and anticipate events and when–when one is threatened.”
So for Soros, religious Jews, Zionists, and in effect the overwhelming majority of the Jewish communities of the world are bringing disaster on themselves by provoking an antisemitic backlash.
His intention here is in no way to help the Jews (“the ones from whom the thing was taken away) but to act in what he perceives as being his own benefit. Soros is not the first Jew in history to calculate that if Israel didn’t exist or that if the Jews merely shut up and hid their identity there would be no problem with antisemitism. And if this happened he could be safe. It isn’t surprising that he has come to hate the people who he believes endanger his life and wealth.
Similarly, he is scared that conservatives are provoking a leftist upheaval. Soros is insuring himself against the new winning side by financing it, believing that if America and Europe move ever leftward, this will reduce pressure against capitalism in general or at least protect his personal wealth. After all, he must reason, why would the radical movement–anti-capitalist or anti-Israel–ever turn on its patron?
In effect, Soros reserves the phrase “never again” not in regard to Jewish suffering but in regard to his personally never being “the one from whom the thing was being taken away.” And meanwhile he can, ironically enough, use his wealth and power to be the Jew who in the entire world came closest to ruling “by proxy.” All the more need for him to take such protective measures.
