Such organisations included the Aaron and Marie Blackman Foundation which with net assets of over $7 million provided grants to both Israeli organisations and organisations in relationships with Israel; the American Friends of Ateret Cohanim which is a Jerusalem based non-profit organisation — with an office in New York — involved in the urban renewal of Jerusalem through Jewish gentrification including the introduction of a Jewish presence in the Christian and Muslim quarters of the Old City which it claims as belonging to every single Jew despite the fact that Israel’s occupation of East Jerusalem is still not recognised under international law; the Amcha Initiative aims to protect Jewish students from anti-Semitism which it broadly defines as being virtually any criticism of Israel and its human rights violations, and regards organisations such as BDS as being examples of anti-Semitism; the American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF) with an annual budget of $26 million which takes Congressional Representatives on all-expense-paid trips to Israel;
the American Jewish Committee (AJC) which was established in 1906 and is San Francisco based — with assets of $135 million and an annual income of about $50 million — advocates the right of Israel as an exclusionary Jewish State; and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) with a £100 million endowment and annual revenues of over $60 million with which to completely control the U.S. Congress . . .

Despite its being a religious group, its support of Israel is zealotic to the extent that some Chabad rabbis have encouraged Jewish people to kill “Arab men, women, and children.” Chabad has also openly taught that “the soul of the Jew is different than the soul of the non-Jew”; and the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) which is a right-wing Evangelical Christian organisation with more than one million members nationwide advocating American support for Israel that is based mainly on Biblical prophecy . . .

The world Jewish community participates in the Jewish Agency’s decision-making process through the Assembly, its supreme governing body, and its Board of Governors, which is responsible for policy making and oversight; the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) which has an annual funding of some $3.5 million is an umbrella for many smaller organisations who work for “the safety and security of the State of Israel”; the Jewish Day Schools which is tax exempt and consequently subsidised by U.S. taxpayers promises to “instil in our students an attachment to the state of Israel” that includes school trips to that country; the Jewish National Fund (JNF) which is an international organisation with assets of $1.2 billion that was originally founded by Theodore Herzl in 1901 at Basel in Switzerland for the purpose of purchasing land in Palestine for a future Jewish state; the Jim Joseph Foundation — with assets of some $840,000,000 — sponsors “Israel Education,” with activities that include “twinning day schools with schools in Israel, integrating Israel education with learning taking place in general studies courses, and showcasing Israel’s arts and culture so students and teachers are in direct contact with what is happening in Israel today”; the Leona M. and Harry B Helmsley Charitable Trust which is valued at between $4 to $8 billion and supports programmes that are primarily focussed on “the security and development of Israel”; and the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which is a shadowy tax exempt Mossad brainchild annually receiving donations and grants totalling some $5 million to finance its propaganda which includes circulating blatantly biased translations with a view to portraying Arabs in a negative light . . .
The National Council of Young Israel is a group of 146 “fiercely Zionist” Orthodox Jewish congregations that offer material support to the Israeli Defence Force for its attacks on Palestinians. Its being an umbrella for over 100 individual non-profit organisations makes it difficult to ascertain the source and exact amount of its income; the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) operates with an annual income of over $1.2 million; Pro-Israel Political Action Committees (PACs) — only four of which have names indicating their true agendas, such as “Allies for Israel” or “World Alliance for Israel” with the rest having innocuous labels like “National Action Committee” or “Heartland PAC” — and which constitute AIPAC’s political campaign finance network; the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) has a Victory Fund of over $2 million and annual revenues of more than $10 million for control of a Super Pac war chest to effect the “embrace of a pro-Israel foreign policy”; the Simon Wiesenthal Centre with an annual budget of $25 million and net assets of £67 million confronts anti-Semitism, defends Jewish safety worldwide, and ensures that future generations never forget the Holocaust . . .
