Exclamation Hacked Emails Show Soros Plot To Undermine Israel

Hacked Emails Show Soros Plot To Undermine Israel
By JTA


http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Pol...TEzRjc0Mzk3N0Y


Washington - Hacked emails show that the Open Society Foundations, led by George Soros, has as an objective “challenging Israel’s racist and anti-democratic policies” in international forums, in part by questioning Israel’s reputation as a democracy.

The documents are available on a website, reportedly backed by Russia, that uses anti-Semitic stereotypes to attack Soros.

They reveal that Open Society, which was founded and is chaired by the hedge fund billionaire and philanthropist, gave close to $10 million since 2001 to groups advancing the rights of Arab Israelis, with an emphasis in recent years on countering what one document says are Israel’s “restrictive measures” against minorities.

“In recent years the radicalization of public opinion and consecutive Israeli right wing governments have resulted in more restrictive measures against Palestinians within Israel,” a Sept. 1, 2015 review of Open Society’s Arab Regional Office’s work said.

It cites as an example the Jewish Nation State bill, advanced by its sponsors to entrench Israel’s Jewish status, but decried by some Arab Israelis as further marginalizing non-Jewish minorities. The bill has yet to pass.

Among achievements listed in the Sept. 1 document, the Arab Regional Office includes increased advocacy by “Palestinian citizens of Israel,” or PCI, in international forums, challenging Israel’s “racist” policies in the face of its reputation as a democracy.

The document advocates the “development of a more organized and efficient PCI advocacy and presence in international forums (UN, EU, US) especially in light of the increasingly limited domestic avenues available for seeking justice.”

“In shifting to international advocacy, PCI’s [sic] are up against Israel and its image as a democratic state before the international community, therefore Palestinian civil society organizations in Israel feel the pressure of filling this gap by strengthening their relations with international actors and systems such as the European Union and United Nations to put their issue on the international agenda,” it says.

“There have been a number of successes in challenging Israel’s racist and anti-democratic policies in the international arena and influencing EU-Israel bilateral negotiations,” the document says.

The emails were posted in recent weeks by DC Leaks, a group Bloomberg News, in an Aug. 11 report, quoted security experts as saying is likely backed by Russia’s intelligence agencies.

Open Society told Bloomberg News that it reported the hacks to the FBI. JTA has submitted a number of queries regarding the hacks to Open Society, which has yet to reply.

Former communists in the Eastern Bloc have for years reviled Soros for promoting democracy and free markets in their countries. At the same time some Jewish groups have labeled Soros, a child survivor of the Holocaust, as anti-Israel.

The Soros page on DC Leaks’ website, in broken English, notes Soros’ Hungarian Jewish roots. Depicting a sinister-looking Soros presiding over an array of news photos of rioting and violence, it invokes anti-Semitic tropes commonplace in Russia and eastern Europe, describing him as a “vampire” managing “puppets” and “slaves” who “spill blood of millions and millions people just to make him even more rich.”

Soros is a major backer of the presidential bid of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Clinton’s campaign has accused Russian intelligence of being behind a deluge of recent embarrassing email dumps, and has alleged that Russian President Vladimir Putin is backing her rival, Republican nominee Donald Trump.

An Aug. 6, 2015 document details Open Society’s Arab Regional Office funding of civil society groups in Israel since 2001, amounting to $9,591,801. The group obtaining the most money is Adalah, a legal rights group for Arab Israelis, which received a total of $2,688,561 over the period.

Another grantee is the New Israel Fund, a clearinghouse for Israeli civil rights groups, which received $837,500 from 2002-2015.

Notably, the Sept. 1, 2015 Arab Regional Office review depicts as a positive a controversial initiative, the 2007 Democratic Constitution, calling it one of several “important cooperation efforts among leading OCI civil society groups.”

That document, which the review describes as “the most direct and substantive challenge posed by Palestinian citizens to their status in the Jewish Israeli state” was decried by pro-Israel groups at the time as promoting an outcome that would all but remove Israel’s Jewish character.

Adalah was one of the drafting bodies, and the subsequent controversy led the New Israel Fund in 2010 to revise its funding criteria to reject any group that “works to deny the right of the Jewish people to sovereign self-determination within Israel.” The NIF policy was not retroactive, and it still funds Adalah.

The release of the Open Society documents was overshadowed by last month’s similar dump, by WikiLeaks, of Democratic National Committee emails, also believed to have been hacked by Russians. Those emails, revealing antagonism within the DNC toward Bernie Sanders’ ultimately unsuccessful bid for the party’s nomination, led to the resignation of top DNC officials.

NGO Monitor, an Israeli watchdog, uncovered among the DC Leaks trove a separate document prepared by Open Society’s European Policy Institute, suggesting questions for September 2014 hearings to confirm senior European Union foreign policy officials.

Among the questions are one that promotes labeling products from West Bank settlements and another that favors the ascension of the Palestinian Authority to the International Criminal Court. Israel adamantly opposes both policies.

Exclamation Soros Group Funded ‘Opposition Research’ On Critics Of Radical Islam

Memo: Soros Group Funded ‘Opposition Research’ On Critics Of Radical Islam
By CHUCK ROSS


http://dailycaller.com/2016/08/14/me...radical-islam/


A non-profit group controlled by billionaire financier George Soros set out to conduct opposition research on a handful of critics of radical Islam, a newly released internal memo shows.

The 2011 document, entitled “Extreme Polarization and Breakdown in Civil Discourse,” is one of more than 2,500 files stolen from Soros’ Open Society Foundations and published online on Saturday.

It names prominent critics of radical Islam, such as Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney, and Robert Spencer as targets for opposition researchers working on a project operated by the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank that has received millions of dollars in grants from Soros’ groups.

In the memo, Open Society Foundations (OSF) executives lamented that progressive groups and members of the Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian-American (AMEMSA) community lacked “high quality opposition research” to combat “anti-Muslim xenophobia and to promote tolerance.”

To close that gap, OSF sought to provide a $200,000 grant to CAP, which was founded in 2003 by Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.

(RELATED: Soros Groups Get Hacked, Hundreds Of Documents Leaked - http://dailycaller.com/2016/08/13/so...#ixzz4HMoxhuLF)

The CAP project, called the Examining Anti-Muslim Bigotry Project, set out to engage progressives and journalists to raise awareness about the critics of radical Islam. In addition to Geller, Gaffney and Spencer, CAP planned to “research and track” the activities of David Horowitz, Daniel Pipes, Cliff May and Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

“CAP’s first step will be to interview and engage journalists, researchers, academics, and leaders in the anti-hate movement who are researching and writing on Islamophobia, and to develop a roster of knowledgeable and credible experts to whom journalists and policymakers can turn for information,” it continues.

OSF did fund CAP’s project. Its 2011 tax filings show that it gave CAP the $200,000 grant as well as two others totaling $500,000.

According to the OSF document, which was published on a new website called DCLeaks, CAP would also explore the interactions of groups of conservative think tanks, pundits and politicians which were part of the so-called Islamophobia movement.

“We need a clearer understanding of what by all indications is a well orchestrated and well financed system by which right-wing think tanks, pundits, and politicians are able to introduce false narratives and flawed research into the media cycle and use their misinformation to manipulate public opinion and thwart progressive counterterrorism policies,” the memo states.

“Just as critically, CAP will approach its work with an appreciation of the connections between the Islamophobia movement and related forms of xenophobia.”

Exclamation Huge hack exposes soros’s war on israel

HUGE HACK EXPOSES SOROS’S WAR ON ISRAEL
A radical left-wing billionaire's agenda for the Jewish State exposed.
By P. David Hornik


http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2638...p-david-hornik


Over the weekend hackers leaked reams of confidential reports from the Open Society Foundations, hedge-fund billionaire George Soros’s ostensible charitable network, to the DC Leaks website.

DC Leaks is believed to be backed by Russian intelligence agencies. Soros, who is of Hungarian Jewish origin, is a major supporter of the Democratic Party and a dogged opponent of the state of Israel, or—at the very least—of the policies and values embodied by its elected governments.

The leaks shed new light on the intensity of Soros’s animus against the Jewish state. One of the Open Society Foundations’ aims was to “challeng[e] Israel’s racist and anti-democratic policies” and subvert its image as a democracy in the international arena.

One way Soros’s outfit did that was to funnel funds to highly adversarial Israel-based organizations. Since 2001 the largest total, almost $2.7 million, has gone to the Israeli Arab NGO Adalah. As NGO Monitor details (http://www.ngo-monitor.org/ngos/adalah/), Adalah vilifies Israel as a “colonial enterprise” and “apartheid state,” charges it with “war crimes,” and calls for its international isolation.

Another $1 million has gone to another Israeli Arab NGO, the I’lam Media Center. During the 2014 Gaza War, I’lam expressed its loyalty to its country—a haven for its Arab minority (http://evelyncgordon.com/myths-and-f...israeli-arabs/) —by calling on the notoriously anti-Israeli UN Human Rights Council to “[c]ondemn the deliberate, systematic and widespread targeting of Palestinian civilians” and set up an “international commission of inquiry” to criminalize Israel for its war against massive Hamas rocket fire.

Some of the funding to these and similar NGOs was channeled through the New Israel Fund. A far-left group in its own right, the NIF, as NGO Monitor notes, funds organizations “that are active in international and divisive campaigns that contribute to…the demonization and delegitimization of Israel.” As well as being a conduit for the Soros funds, NIF itself has received a total of $837,000 of them.

“Even more troubling,” as Liel Leibovitz notes (http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/2108...ti-israel-bias) on Tablet, “the documents repeatedly indicate that the network actively tried to conceal its engagements in Israel and the Palestinian territories.” As part of what NGO monitor calls (http://www.ngo-monitor.org/press-rel...olitical-ngos/) “the secrecy and lack of transparency inherent in the [Open Society Foundations’] activities,” one document states:

For a variety of reasons, we wanted to construct a diversified portfolio of grants dealing with Israel and Palestine…and in all cases to maintain a low profile and relative distance—particularly on the advocacy front.

That has, of course, gotten increasingly difficult in a world of hackers and mysterious websites.

In seeking to blacken Israel’s name, Soros’s network had an eye for what it saw as golden opportunities. One, as stated in a report by the network, was “a particular shift in political dynamics particularly in the US reflected by the publication of the Walt and Mearsheimer article ‘The Israel Lobby’ [denounced as antisemitic (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...0401282.html)] in Spring 2006.”

“Another encouraging shift,” as Leibovitz notes, was “the rise of the international movement to boycott Israel.” As the same Soros-network report stated:

A number of factors make this a good moment to review this portfolio, including some new or improved opportunities we may choose to exploit. In recent years there’s been heightened international solidarity around Palestinians’ rights, the rise of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement and other economic levers, and increased use and traction of arts and culture by Palestinians as a means to raise awareness of violations and the impact of the conflict.”

It translates into: make use of anything—including the BDS movement, whose explicit aim is to destroy Israel (http://www.stopbds.com/?page_id=48) —to weaken, harass, undermine, and defame the state of Israel.

Soros, himself, said that he

“grew up in a Jewish, anti-Semitic home,” and that his parents were “uncomfortable with their religious roots.” They even changed their name from Shwartz to Soros in 1936 to disassociate themselves from the Jewish community.

That Soros has also acknowledged (http://archive.frontpagemag.com/read...px?ARTID=25969) being neither “a Zionist, nor…a practicing Jew,” nor very “engaged in Jewish affairs,” is one thing. That he works to drag the Jewish state into oblivion along with him is, of course, quite another.

Ironically, the DC Leaks website that has exposed the documents presents Soros in a vicious antisemitic caricature, including calling him a “vampire” who controls “puppets” and “slaves” who “spill blood of millions and millions of people just to make him even more rich.” Soros won’t, it’s safe to assume, be looking toward Israel—under intermittent vicious attack for 68 years—for solidarity.

Exclamation George Soros’s Open Border Foundations

GEORGE SOROS’S OPEN BORDER FOUNDATIONS
An inside look at the machinations of the multibillionaire and his mission to destroy national sovereignty.
By Joseph Klein


August 17, 2016
http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2638...s-joseph-klein


Thanks to the hacking of George Soros's Open Society Foundations (OSF) by DCLeaks (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-0...d-manipulation), we are getting an inside look at the machinations of the multibillionaire and his organizations. Soros is exploiting the refugee crisis to advance his radical left agenda. Indeed, his Open Society Foundations should be re-named the Open Border Foundations.

One leaked memo stands out for its brazen presumption that the refugee crisis should be accepted as “the new normal.” It is entitled “Migration Governance and Enforcement Portfolio Review (http://soros.dcleaks.com/fview/Presi...12.2016.pdf).” The memo was written by Anna Crowley, the Program Officer of OSF’s International Migration Initiative, and Kate Rosin, a Program Specialist for the same initiative.

Never wanting, in Rahm Emanuel’s words, to “let a serious crisis go to waste,” the memo’s authors wrote how the refugee crisis “is opening new opportunities” with respect to donors. They also praised efforts to “take advantage of momentum created by the current crisis to shape conversations about rethinking migration governance.” They had in mind “institutional reforms to global migration governance.” To that end, their International Migration Initiative helped fund the work of the Columbia Global Policy Initiative, which hosts the secretariat for Peter Sutherland, the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative on International Migration. They praised the “elite-level behind the scenes advocacy through Peter Sutherland,” which they believe will influence the outcome of this September’s summits on migrants and refugees at the United Nations, one of which is to be led by President Obama.

Peter Sutherland is an open borders fundamentalist. For example, at a reception held on October 22, 2015 to honor the 70th anniversary of the United Nations, Sutherland claimed that caps on refugees enforced by certain countries in Europe are “directly reminiscent of the type of caps that took place under the Reich [against] the Jewish population.” In an interview last October with UN News Centre, Sutherland derided the very notion of national sovereignty (http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.as...6#.V7SPjVsrLIX). He said governments must “recognise that sovereignty is an illusion – that sovereignty is an absolute illusion that has to be put behind us. The days of hiding behind borders and fences are long gone.”

As for George Soros himself, he is willing to turn Europe inside out to achieve his open border objectives. He wants the European Union to commit to admit at least 300,000 refugees annually from troubled regions and to allot 30 billion euros (approximately $33 billion) a year to implement a comprehensive asylum plan. And he favors far more openness to admitting economic migrants as well.

Soros has criticized the government of Hungary (http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015...-the-obstacle/), his birthplace, for placing protection of national borders above what he calls “European values.” Soros sees national borders as “an obstacle” to protecting “refugees,” no matter whom such self-declared “refugees” might actually be.

The document leak also puts a lie to the title “Open Society.” Soros and his minions loved operating in the shadows. One leaked memo, for example, admits that Soros’s group was considering using journalists to push out the narrative on Ukraine that Soros wanted in support of the Kiev regime. It discussed the pros and cons of offering selected journalists “long stay reporting trips in Ukraine” while retaining “a veto on stories we think are counterproductive.” Behind the scenes, other leaked documents reveal (http://www.mintpressnews.com/leaked-...regime/206574/), Soros was simultaneously pushing for the U.S. to provide more lethal weapons to the Kiev government while offering to use his influence to help prop up the country’s finances.

In one draft memo (http://cyber-berkut.org/docs/Soros_U...0_2015_v14.pdf), which Soros signed “George Soros–A self-appointed advocate of the new Ukraine, March 12, 2015,” Soros advocated that “Ukraine’s allies should treat Ukraine as a defense priority.” He also pushed for a “radical reform program,” offering very specific political and economic prescriptions, backed by “the Ukrainian branch of the Soros Foundations.” This Ukrainian branch, known as the Renaissance Foundation, was reportedly paying headhunters to find suitable individuals to work in the Ukrainian government, even if they come from Ukrainian communities as far away as the U.S. and Canada. Soros’s foundation may also have been helping to pay the salaries of some Ukrainian ministers.

Soros was also looking for the U.S. and the European Union to help bail out Ukraine’s financial system. In a letter dated December 23, 2014 to Ukraine’s president and prime minister (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-0...-puppet-master), Soros discussed the need to pull together a multibillion dollar commitment from the European Council, which could then be used to persuade the Federal Reserve to extend a three months swap arrangement with the National Bank of Ukraine. “I am ready to call Jack Lew of the US Treasury to sound him out about the swap agreement,” Soros wrote.

In the meantime, Soros is making sure that he will be in a position to profit from a more stabilized Ukraine. Last November it was announced that Soros’s Ukrainian Redevelopment Fund would be investing in a fund sponsored by Dragon Capital to invest in Ukraine. Through that vehicle, Soros’s Ukrainian Redevelopment Fund invested in Ukrainian software developer Ciklum Holding Ltd. It acquired the stake from Horizon Capital, an investment firm founded by Natalie Jaresko, whom was serving at the time as Ukraine's finance minister. Ms. Jaresko, it turns out, is a U.S. citizen of Ukrainian descent whom had once worked in the U.S. State Department. She became a Ukrainian citizen in December 2014, the same time she became finance minister.

Finally, to bring things around full circle, Soros sees an opportunity for Ukraine to help the EU alleviate its refugee crisis (http://sputniknews.com/europe/201607...ommentary.html) by taking in some of the refugees in return for financial aid. How the Ukrainian people may feel about that suggestion does not appear to be of any concern to the meddler-in-chief. Soros believes his agenda of open borders, and the bottom line on his own investments, take precedence over the opinions of the people most affected by his interference into their internal affairs.

I pity George Soros. Why? The reason is, what is he going to say when he stands before G_d and asked to give an account of his life. With all his billions he could have helped Israel and his fellow Jews as well as all in need as a true philanthropist to bring help and hope to those in need rather than manipulate people, governments, economies, work against Israel and the Jewish people. What is G_d going to say to him? I know some are going to say perhaps George Soros does not believe in G_d but I say the better question is "does G_d believe in George Soros?" and that is a question George Soros better think about as he nears the end of his life when all his money, power, and influence will count for nothing.
