If you have been seeing coverage of gender segregation issues in Israel then you may not be aware that you are actually seeing another Soros project in motion. The name of the game, as usual, is divide and conquer. Soros funded NGO’s embed themselves into a society and leverage its weakness to create confrontations that empower its activists and agendas.
While Israel does have neighborhoods in Jerusalem where a few Anti-Zionist cults practice their own form of intimidation and thuggery (if you have seen men in black protesting outside Israeli events, then you have seen some of these people at work) this particular crisis is the work of Soros funded NGO’s who have their own agenda, and it isn’t gender equality or women’s rights.
Soros’ money helps fund the New Israel Fund, a radical anti-Israel group operating inside the country which serves as the mothership of smaller left-wing Israeli organizations targeting demographic groups and organizing them under the umbrella of its movement.
In the following video, Rachel Liel, the executive director of the New Israel Fund, talks fairly openly about the New Israel Fund’s goals and its shift in tactics from funding confrontations between religious and secular Jews, to funding internal confrontations among religious Jews.
The material is old hat for anyone familiar with how Communist and New Left groups operate, the game here is to leverage the billions of dollars at the disposal of the American Left to sow discord within the State of Israel, and to create a constituency for the New Left with the endgame of destroying the country. The money passes through multiple NGO’s as grants and trickles down through the New Israel Fund to groups that can be used to carry out its agenda.
The left’s blueprint remains the same—exploit social problems within a target country, recruit a fifth column of the disaffected and build a permanent political base for permanent power, while at the same time overturning the culture and its values.
Soros’ people in Israel began their work with Arabs, they moved on to exploiting tensions between secular and religious Jews, and now they have pushed further into to stirring up conflicts among religious Jews. The deeper they get, the more damage they cause.
In the video Liel explicitly spells out the NIF’s goal of recruiting people from within a target community who “speak the language” and can help the left infiltrate and disrupt those communities. The effort is not limited to Israel. The left has similarly targeted Orthodox Jews in America using a leftist seminary known as Yeshivat Chovevei Torah which has given birth to Uri L’Tzedek, an Anti-Jewish leftist pressure group which has conducted boycotts and spread hatred against the Jewish community while pretending to be members of that community.
Tracking where that money comes from and where it goes is a full time job. Take Uri L’Tzedek whose funders include the Joshua Venture Group. The Joshua Venture Group is partly funded by the Nathan Cummings Foundation. The Cummings Foundation is also a funder for Repair the World, which is another funder for Uri L’Tzedek. The Cummings Foundation is run by Lance E. Lindblom, a former officer at the Ford Foundation and Executive Vice President at Soros’ Open Society Institute.
Over and over again the tracks lead through a series of family foundations, through Chicago and New York, and all the way back to the black rotten heart of a Nazi collaborator and his cronies still funding a war against the Jews in the name of “social justice”.
The task is much harder with the New Israel Fund which is why the Israeli parliament has tried to tackle the problem with transparency legislation aimed at foreign funded NGO’s, and why Soros’ leftist cronies in the United States and Europe have stirred up a storm accusing the government of everything they can think of in order to kill any effort to leash Gyorgy’s dogs.
The New Israel Fund is Soros’ biggest mutt in Israel and its latest venture is aimed at expanding divisions and furthering conflicts within the country. The villains in this case are as anti-Zionist and anti-Israel as Soros and his cronies, but they are a useful foil for manufacturing a social problem.
New Israel Fund Principles
The New Israel Fund is dedicated to the vision of the State of Israel as the sovereign expression of the right of self-determination of the Jewish people and as a democracy dedicated to the full equality of all its citizens and communities.
The New Israel Fund is committed to advancing the values of human dignity ensconced in Israel’s Declaration of Independence which it views as the key to its long-term security and survival.
The New Israel Fund (NIF) works to strengthen Israel’s democracy and to promote freedom, justice and equality for all Israelis. Its work is designed to
- Achieve equality for all the citizens of the state regardless of religion, national origin, race, gender or sexual orientation;
- Realize the civil and human rights of all individuals and groups through the protection of Palestinian citizens and other marginalized minorities, including the advancement of collective rights, and opposition to all forms of discrimination and bigotry;
- Recognize and reinforce the essential pluralism of Israeli society and tolerance for diversity;
- Protect the access of minorities to democratic channels for the expression of their interests and identities and the promotion of their rights;
- Empower civil society in Israel as the fundamental vehicle of an open society;
- Build and maintain a just society at peace with itself and its neighbors.

Middle East & North Africa Initiative
The Open Society Middle East and North Africa Initiative provides grants to a wide range of projects that promote open society issues across the region. Most of these activities focus on education, rights and governance, media and information, youth, and arts and culture.
The initiative offers financial and technical support to individuals and organizations working to improve government accountability, transparency, rule of law, and human rights, as well as to those working to empower women and foster independent media and the open exchange of information. The initiative operates out of the Open Society Foundations Arab Regional Office in Amman, Jordan, and also has staff in New York and Washington, D.C. It works in close collaboration with various Open Society programs, and currently supports projects and organizations across the Middle East including in Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
Some of the initiative’s recent activities have included helping establish a regional arts and culture fund to support music, theater, cinema, visual arts, and literature. The initiative has supported NGOs monitoring human rights violations by both Israeli and Palestinian authorities, groups in Israel that challenge discrimination and promote equitable housing and environmental conditions for Arabs and Jews, and efforts in Egypt to reduce media censorship and improve individual liberties, including freedom of religion and rights for people with mental disabilities.
The initiative has also partnered with Open Society programs to support activities that address violence against women and the impact of conflict upon women in countries such as Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, and the Occupied Palestinian Territories; establish and sustain youth education and debate activities in Syria; increase parental involvement in early childhood education in Nazareth; and support refugee academics from Iraq to allow them to stay in the region and continue their work.
