Topics

New Israel Fund

The New Israel Fund has shown many instances of poor judgment, as NGO Monitors detailed analyses demonstrate. The large scale NIF support for what are often termed "civil rights" groups seeks to impose the American experience on the very different reality of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The October, 2007 NIForum (a week-long series of events across the USA) is a timid response to the growing dissatisfaction with and criticism of NIF. If they were serious, NIF leaders would hold a really open Forum, and welcome the long-overdue public debate.
