Soros Cabal attacks Sen. Cotton’s critique of AntiSemitism

The Senator’s warning should have been praised in the headlines of all major media outlets in the U.S., and Israel. But it was mentioned only in a few Jewish and Israeli newspapers, mostly Left-leaning. Though the Senator did not mention George Soros, the headline of the Israeli Left-leaning daily – and New York Times’ partner, Haaretz – screamed: “Sen. Tom Cotton accuses Soros-funded think tank of fostering antisemitism,” implying – as they, and most other progressive radical-Left outlets who act as Soros’s bandogs do – that anyone critical of any of many Soros initiatives, is an anti-Semite.
What did Sen. Cotton say to anger Haaretz?
“Anti-Semitism is the ancient hatred, but today it can appear in new disguises. It festers on Internet message boards and social media,” said the Senator. He then had the Chutzpa pointing out that anti-Semitism, “festers in so-called Washington think tanks like the Quincy Institute, [emphasis added] an isolationist blame-America-first money pit for so-called “scholars” who’ve written that American foreign policy could be fixed if only it were rid of the malign influence of Jewish money.”
The Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft was founded and funded last year by Charles Koch and George Soros. Koch, the isolationist libertarian billionaire, funder of mostly ultra-right causes critical of U.S. foreign policy, is known, like Soros, for sponsoring academicians and events denouncing alleged Israeli influence in Washington. Koch, who isn’t Jewish, did not make it to Haaretz’s headline.
Soros has long blamed America for being “The main obstacle for a new world order.” While his and Koch’s ideas on America and its role in the world are not the same, both are interested in diminishing the U.S. global influence.
Soros’s funding of the Quincy Institute, together with the isolationist Koch, marked an expansion of, not a departure from the agenda he set for his political philanthropy. Soros whose “motto is: “If I spend enough, I will make it right,” is famous for funding Left, globalist anti-American, radical progressive neo-socialists and anti-Israel groups, sees the opportunity of funding the Quincy Institute, with Koch, an opportunity to cast his net wider. Both can now advance their shared ambition to change “the attitude and policies of the United States.”
Soros and his family members have been using their foundations to regularly fund anti-Israel, anti-Zionist lobby groups. Adding the Quincy Institute helps widen their net. In 2007, Soros wrote On Israel, America and AIPAC, that “attitudes toward Israel are influenced by the pro-Israel lobby’s success in suppressing divergent views.” So soon after J Street, which advocates “alternative” views of Israel was established, the Soros family, through their foundations gifted some $750,000 over three years (2007-2010), to the new anti-Israel lobby. They have continued their support ever since.
Sen. Cotton noted that anti-Semitism “festers even on elite college campuses, which incubate the radical Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement—a movement to wage economic warfare against the Jewish state.”
As it turns out, Soros has been funding organizations that support BDS and other Palestinian NGOs, even Al-Haq, which has been known for years for its virulent anti-Israel, pro-BDS propaganda, and close ties to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organization designated as such by the U.S. EU, Canada, and Israel.
According to the OSF’s grant database, in 2011 and 2012, the organization gave al-Haq $100,000 each year. In 2014, al Haq received $309,000 from OSF; $400,00 in 2016, and two grants totaling $891,630 in 2017.
The OSF has publicly denied supporting the BDS. But al Haq’s activities has been known for years, it seems the OSF either intentionally ignore or willfully disregard clear evidence that al Haq promotes the BDS, and has close ties to the PFLP, a Designated Terror Organization. A feeble attempt of plausible deniability was made by Soros spokesperson Michael Vachon in April 2019, saying “the foundation cannot track every project connected to every organization that it has supported over the decades.” It’s time the OSF is held accountable.
Sen. Cotton also noted that “While Jews were being attacked in New York City, a law went into effect eliminating pretrial detention and bail for most crimes—including serious crimes like stalking, arson, robbery…even manslaughter and negligent homicide.” This law is just another example of Soros’ multimillion decades-long efforts for Justice reform and the Rule of Law in the U.S., to change U.S. policies to his liking.
Denouncing Sen. Cotton’s criticism of those who promote the BDS and anti-Semitism, was yet another effort by the Soros cabal to trivialize hate.
