'New Israel Fund' Not What It Seems

The New Israel Fund/Shatil is advertising a social-justice fellowship, which is a “10 month experience where fellows spend 32 hours per week interning in an approved, individually-selected Israeli non-governmental organization (NGO).” And while this sounds like something many American supporters would be interested in, its a training seminar for enemies of Israel in reality, Israel's Ma'ariv reports.

Ma’ariv wrote of a previous NIF/Shatil training seminar. A participant wrote that amongst participants were activists “who want to annihilate the State without ruling out violent means, who believe that the State of Israel was born out of sin and who apologize for its existence, who loathe Israel and its symbols . . . who devote their lives and efforts towards turning Israel into a bi or multi-national country.”

As this young woman recounted, she found herself at the event, “with Palestinian and Jewish human rights activists who negated the State of Israel's existence. With people who want to annihilate the State without ruling out violent means, who believe that the State of Israel was born out of sin and who apologize for its existence, who loathe Israel and its symbols, who justify harming Israel, its soldiers and all its institutions, who devote their lives and efforts towards turning Israel into a bi or multi-national country. In fact the above is inaccurate. These people are fighting for one nationality alone — Palestinian. These same people oppose communal or civil national service for Arabs within the State. They also equate Israel's actions with those of Nazi Germany."

Do the supporters of the fund have any idea that the numerous organizations benefiting from its support and counsel are putting all their effort into negating Israel as a Jewish and democratic state?

Is the fund itself openly working towards removing the "Jewishness" from the state? Is the fund trying to turn Israel into a country for all her inhabitants alongside a Palestinian state?

Is the fund backing the fact that the aim of the Palestinian society sector within "Shatil" is to strengthen the expression of the Palestinian nation, and that on the Jewish side of the spectrum the aim is to strengthen freedom of religion and not Jewish identity and the national expression of the Jews in their homeland?”

Unfortunately, there are those Jewish-Americans who believe that surrender to the enemy is better then survival.
