Jewish Agency is guilty






New York – “Love, Hate and the Jewish State 4.0: Airing the Dirty Laundry,” an event recently held at the JCC in Manhattan, a beneficiary of the UJA-Federation of New York, met with controversy when the Jewish Agency (MAKOM) denied any involvement with the event. Evidence, however, clearly shows otherwise.

Last week, charged that the Jewish Agency (MAKOM) had cosponsored the program along with the New Israel Fund, J Street, and other organizations. The Jewish Agency spokesman, Haviv Rettig Gur, speaking to the Israeli press, denied any such alliances. has discovered notices that clearly list the Jewish Agency (MAKOM) as a sponsor. These prove the sponsorship of not only this year’s event, but also last year’s and, based on evidence in articles still found online, at least as far back as 2009.‘s founder, Richard Allen, calling “Love Hate and the Jewish State 4.0: Airing the Dirty Laundry” a “bash-Israel event,” stated that it “trains the younger Jewish generation to hate the Jewish state. There is nothing at all positive being taught at these political bash-Israel sessions. In fact, the program might be better called ‘Love to Hate the Jewish State 4.0.’” He went on to condemn the JCC in Manhattan, a beneficiary of the UJA-Federation of New York, for hosting yet another event put on by groups that fund and support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. “There are clearly elements within the American arm of the Jewish Agency (MAKOM) that have established links to these nefarious organizations.”

“The Jewish Agency (MAKOM) and the JCC in Manhattan should not be utilized as a sponsor or a gathering place for those who work to delegitimize Israel,” Allen continued. “NGO-Monitor has proven that, for some time now, the New Israel Fund has directly funded groups that support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel. J Street, the George Soros-funded group, has also partnered with efforts to further the insidious BDS movement.

“We once again call on the JCC in Manhattan’s board of directors to establish firm and serious guidelines to prevent the JCC in Manhattan from becoming a hotbed of bash Israel activities. The Jewish Agency must also supervise their American arm, MAKOM, and establish better oversight to prevent sponsorships of anti-Israel activities.”

  1. Jewish Agency of New York,, LOST IN SPACE. JEWS: One size does not fit all.
    I saw that when they showed they were IN FAVOR OF THE ISLAMIC CENTER BUILDING
    TO BE BUILT NEAR GROUND ZERO. Yup… I knew then.. never the twain would meet.

    @#$%^&*()_+@!#e$%^&*()!@#$%^&*() Give peace a chance.. my … uh oh.

  2. I lost faith in the Jewish Agency quite a long time ago! I found it to be managed by a bunch of unefficient, over-paid functionaies with a left leaning brand of “Zionism”. I could never understand how or why they brought hundred thousands of non Jews from the former Soviet Union to Israel..since the Law of Return is quite clear on that matter. The more I thought about it the more I am convinced there was something very wrong here! One of my hypothesis was that, since they obviously do not feel Jewish or Zionists they would constitute an
    amorphic public, without Jewish values, ideals and linkage to the land which could constitute an ideal constituency to breng the “Doves” to power to force the continuation of that Oslo rip-off. I would not be surprised if the “Shlihim” received a special premium per head brought to Israel..Jewish or less Jewish or not Jewish at all..

  3. There is no need for the vast bureaucracy of the Jewish Agency and I was a shaliach of them for a short time. They were and in many ways still are a government within a government and over the past 20 or so years in order to justify their existence have brought to Israel hundreds of thousands of non Jews claiming a grandparent as Jewish.

    It was always and probably still is a place to politically reward party hacks when they fail to gain other perks for political loyalty to the entrenched political parties. It wastes vast resources that can be better put to use.

    Dissolve this dinosaur and throw back to another time.

  4. Amongst the vast array of hideaway niches pillaged by the unJewish elites…, the “Jewish Agency”, figures prominantly.
    Years back a group including myself attempted to create “The NEW JEWISH AGENCY” and found a furious response from an large contingent of attorneys paid by the old and descredited one.
    We decided also in this case, that there is no practical way to return that organization to its original purposes. It must be replaced completely.

  5. Laura,

    That is exactly right. Notice the involvement of the Federation – a bunch of metrosexual, gated-community Jews who do everything their masters at the DNC and the NYT tell them to do. Israel and the Jewish people are simply a vehicle for their own self promotion.

  6. To say the Jewish community is being ill-served by Jewish organizations is an understatement. They have become outright enemies of the Jewish people and state, having been hijacked by the extreme left.
