New Israel Fund Lashes Out at 'Nationalist Settlers'

Controversy over the Israel Day March in New York continued this week, as various pro-Israel groups called on the event's organizers to exclude pro-BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) and extreme leftist groups - including the New Israel Fund (NIF), Partners for a Progressive Israel, and B'Tselem.

NIF Chairman Daniel Sokatch struck back at the growing protests against its participation on Friday, calling to counter "Israeli extremists," whom he accused of controlling the Israeli government.
