“the main source of funding for the prominent anti-Israel organization J Street”
The irony of this is that the far left typically responds to criticism of Soros as anti-Semitism.
Farley Weiss writes at the Jewish News Syndicate:
George Soros’s role in the rise of American antisemitism
The rise of antisemitism and antisemitic violence in the U.S. is partly the result of the political donations of George Soros.
For example, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg received a previously unheard-of sum of $1,000,000 from Soros that was crucial to his election victory.
Now, Bragg is offering a plea deal of just six months in jail to Waseem Awawdeh, who together with a mob of thugs, savagely beat Nassau County resident Joey Borgen on a Manhattan street in 2021. The mob targeted Borgen because he is Jewish and Awawdeh has shown no remorse for his crime.
Americans Against Antisemitism studied 194 antisemitic assaults and 135 attacks on Jewish property in New York that have taken place since 2018. According to their July 2022 report, only two of the perpetrators went to prison. Clearly, under Bragg, fighting antisemitism is not a priority.
Soros has not just spent his money on district attorneys. He was also the main source of funding for the prominent anti-Israel organization J Street. Soros provided a substantial part of the original seed money for J Street and the group’s chairman, Jeremy Ben Ami, repeatedly lied about it before finally admitting the truth.
As AIPAC tweeted on Aug. 24, “George Soros has a long history of backing anti-Israel groups. Now he’s giving $1 million to help [J Street] support anti-Israel candidates and attack pro-Israel Democrats. AIPAC works to strengthen pro-Israel mainstream Democrats. J Street [and] Soros work to undermine them.”
J Street recently signed on to a statement saying they “oppose Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy’s pledge to strip Representative Ilhan Omar of her House Foreign Affairs Committee seat based on false accusations that she is antisemitic or anti-Israel.”
