I would have titled this article, “It’s Official: Pro-PA Billionaire George Soros Funds J Street” had anyone asked me. They didn’t. If this was a secret, it was one of the worst kept secrets in known history.. …. Ellie Katz.

Pro-Palestinian Authority billionaire George Soros, who once said Israeli and American policies fuel anti-Semitism, helps fund the J Street lobby that is sympathetic to Hamas, The Washington Times revealed Saturday. Soros never was a supporter of  Zionist activities, and a biography of him states that Judaism “did not express itself in a sense of tribal loyalty that would have led him to support Israel.”

He has long been rumored to be behind the left-wing political lobby, but J Street previously denied that he contributed money to the group until now.

“George Soros very publicly stated his decision not to be engaged in J Street when it was launched — precisely out of fear that his involvement would be used against the organization,” the J Street website stated before The Times questioned it about Soros. The site immediately was changed to read, “J Street has said it doesn’t receive money from George Soros, but now news reports indicate that he has in fact contributed.”

Times’ reporter Eli Lake said that the newspaper obtained tax forms revealing that Soros and his two children gave J Street nearly a quarter of a million dollars.

Soros originally helped found J Street as an alternative lobby to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), whose pro-Israel polices angered him. He contributed heavily in an attempt to defeat President Bush when he ran for re-election in 2004, telling The New York Times that getting rid of Bush was  the “central focus of my life” and “a matter of life and death.”

These plans will come to nothing if we truly learn from our grieving and our prayers during the 3 weeks of mourning and on Tisha B’Av. Ahavas Chinam will defeat sinas chinam, and our enemies will not be able to gain a toehold into our Land. HKB”H will see our unity and our love for one another, which is based on our love for Him and on our emunah, and He will  honor our prayers, even if all of us have not yet “arrived” at our final destination within Yiddishkeit. No one will be able to put a wedge between any of us….even if a thousand careful analyses and plans are created to do just that.
