Update: Reaction to the report in the Jewish world has included the cancellation of a speech by Naomi Chazan in Melbourne Australia. Even the left wing in the Diaspora is outraged.
The Jerusalem Post has an article today about a report to be released by Im Tirzu showing that the vast majority of the claims that made up the Goldstone report came from Israeli NGO’s. These NGO’s received millions of dollars from the NIF (New Israel Fund), which claims that it works to support religious pluralism and social justice for Israelis. (No mention about how “unjust” it is for Sderot residents to have to live with thousands of kassam rockets raining down on them…..).
The report also explores the connection between these NGOs and the provision of names of IDF officers to foreign countries in order for them to put out arrest warrants for supposed “war crimes”.
Im Tirzu is an organization that works on campuses in Israel to promote Zionism (how ironic is that???). If this is a sample of some of their work, I can’t wait to see the rest…
