Op-Ed: Being George Soros
Giulio MeottiThe writer, an Italian journalist with Il Foglio, writes a twice-weekly column for Arutz Sheva. He is the author of the book "A New Shoah", that researched the personal stories of Israel's terror victims, published by Encounter. His writing has appeared in publications, such as the Wall Street Journal, Frontpage and Commentary. He has just prblished a book about the Vatican and Israel titled "J'Accuse: the Vatican Against Israel" published by Mantua Books.
The New York-based Human Rights Watch has appointed Shawan Jabarin to its Mideast Advisory Board , a Palestinian who, according to the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), is a senior member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. This terror group specialized in aircraft hijackings and carries out suicide bombings and political assassinations.
A deep look into the HRW’s hierarchy reveals their anti Israel agenda:
-The former Human Rights Watch’s military expert, Marc Garlasco, is a collector of Hitlerian memorabilia.
-According to the Ngo Monitor, Joe Stork, Deputy Director of the Middle East and North Africa Division, took part in a conference on “Zionism and Racism” at the University of Baghdad in 1976, under the auspices of Saddam Hussein.
-Sarah Leah Whitson, Director of the Middle East and North Africa Division, promoted boycott campaigns against Israel.
-Researcher Lucy Mair worked for the radical website “Electronic Intifada”.
-Associate Nadia Barhoum campaigned to divest from Israel.
-Staff member Darryl Li, promoted a project on the “Israeli war criminals” at Harvard.
-The “European Press Director”, Reed Brod,y took an active role in the effort to bring Ariel Sharon to trial in Belgium.
-The vice chair of the Human Rights Watch board was instrumental in inviting Iran’s Ahmadinejad to Columbia University in 2007.
HRW’s embrace of Jabarin highlights the complete moral collapse that led founder Robert Bernstein to denounce the failures of his own organization. But this appointment also reveals the moral agenda of George Soros, the major Human Rights Watch donor.
The “messianic billionaire” Soros is a worldwide Jewish patron of liberal activism, a ruthless Wall Street speculator known as “the most idealistic” among the speculators, and also called “the most influential private citizen between the Rhine and the Urals”. This man, who wants to shape the world in the image of the his “open society”, helped Solidarnosc in Poland and Charter 77 in Czechoslovakia.
In the mock trial of Iranian dissidents in Teheran, some defendants had close links with the Soros foundations, whose name is always evoked by the Iranian regime in order to denounce the “velvet revolutions”.
Among Soros’s campaigns, there was the shameful attempt to destroy George W. Bush politically, against whom the financier spent more than thirty million dollars out of his own pocket. “Defeating Bush is an act of love for humanity”, Soros said.
He believes that American foreign policy is guided by a “Jewish-Zionist lobby”.
Soros just wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post about the Egyptian revolt, accusing Israel of stoping democracy in Cairo: “The main stumbling block is Israel”, writes Soros.
He referred to his Jewishness in the following way: “It did not express itself in a sense of tribal loyalty that would have led...to support Israel”.
Soros likes to call himself an “international philanthropist”. His money went to large liberal anti Israel organizations such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. George Soros’ money flow is a clear example of how the new 'humanitarian' industry is rooted not only in the belief in the equality of humankind but also in the exclusion of the Jew from the benefits of that belief..
