Just Deserts for a Bully

The New Israel Fund, an umbrella philanthropic organization that donates to left-wing and anti-Zionist NGOs in Israel, found itself embroiled in controversy last week. Or I should say, the NIF is shocked, absolutely scandalized, to discover that a lot of people, previously unaware of the group’s activities, have a problem with an organization that brands itself pro-Israel but funds organizations that seek to destroy the Jewish state (sadly, this is no exaggeration).

The controversy was touched off when a Zionist youth group called Im Tirtzu — “if you will it” — published an advertisement in the Jerusalem Post exposing the NIF’s activities. The head of NIF, Naomi Chazan, also happens to write a column for the JPost. Her response to Im Tirtzu? She threatened to sue the JPost. So the JPost fired her.
