A low profile is a good strategy if you want to be evil, but you don’t want everyone to know that you’re evil. The interesting thing about the Soros hack is some of the insider chatter. Like this.
According to the leaked documents, Soros gave more than $2 million to Adalah, a self-described “independent human rights organization” that has accused Israel of war crimes and called on governments to sever diplomatic relations with the Jewish state. More than a $1 million was also donated to the Palestinian media center I’lam, which has accused Israel of ethnic cleansing and has published anti-Zionist content. Other organizations that received funding from Soros according to the report include: Mada al-Carmel, Kayan-Feminist Organization, Mossawa Center, Molad, The Galilee Society, Al-Tufula Center, Ma’an, Injaz, Sidreh, Lakiya, Baladna, Arab Association for Human Rights, National Committee of Heads of Arab Local Authorities in Israel and PILI Foundation.
Several non-governmental organizations (NGOs) received large grants through the New Israel Fund (NIF), which supports many such organizations. This, according to the watchdog group NGO Monitor, directly contradicts NIF’s stated position that it “will not fund global BDS activities against Israel nor support organizations that have global BDS programs.”
The NIF is a clearinghouse for anti-Israel activities so this certainly isn’t surprising. Some of the amounts are. But also there is this revelatory paragraph.
“For a variety of reasons,” states one of the leaked documents. “We wanted to construct a diversified portfolio of grants dealing with Israel and Palestine, funding both Israeli Jewish and PCI (Palestinian Citizens of Israel) groups as well as building a portfolio of Palestinian grants and in all cases to maintain a low profile and relative distance—particularly on the advocacy front.”
Despite that low profile, Soros has come to be associated with funding left-wing and anti-Israel activities. So Sorosworld attempts to maintain distance because they know that the Soros brand is toxic.
