Marking Israel's Independence Day, Prof. Gerald Steinberg discusses the intense political and ideological attacks against Israel, in parallel to the military conflict, with the objective of isolating and delegitimizing the Jewish state.
Responsibility for the attack, beyond Haaretz, lies with Amiram Goldblum, who runs the Yisraela Goldblum Fund, which paid for costs under the wider framework of the non-profit group known as Signing Anew. This funding, in turn, was provided by the NIF, and Goldblum is a member of NIFs International Council.
In advance of Israeli Apartheid Week, Prof. Steinberg explores how NGOs have cynically exploited apartheid rhetoric to libel Israel. This is the "antithesis of the mutual acceptance required for peace."
