New Israel Fund Comes Clean on Role in Tent Protests

Contradicting an earlier denial of involvement in last summer’s tent protests, the New Israel Fund posted a message hailing its deep structural role in facilitating the protests.

“The social protest, which erupted in unprecedented public dimensions, was largely the result of painstaking work of organizations, activists, academics, organizations and communities, over the years,” the statement read. “During the summer months, tens of thousands of citizens organized themselves in new and existing organizations, virtual and community initiatives, local and national groups. Mapping the initiatives, which were initiated by Shatil and the New Israel Fund, outlines the role of this ‘big bang’.”

The New Israel Fund has routinely been accused of supporting of groups and non-governmental organizations that have anti-Zionist agendas and records.
