ZOA Condemns European Community’s Funding Of Leftwing Israeli Extremists


NEW YORK- The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has strongly
criticized the European Community for interfering in Israel’s internal
affairs by providing millions of dollars in aid to leftwing extremist
organizations in Israel.

According to documents obtained by the ZOA, the European
Community’s recent grants include:

* Peace Now – 1 million European pounds (‘E’)
Peace Now lobbies for complete Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967
borders, redivision of Jerusalem, and the establishment of an armed
Palestinian Arab state. Peace Now spokesmen have publicly justified Arab
violence against Israelis in Judea-Samaria-Gaza.

* Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions – 385,000 E
The ICAHD lobbies against the dismantling of illegally-built
Palestinian Arab homes. Its spokesmen have publicly compared Israeli
policies to the policies of Nazi Germany.

* Ir Shalem – 250,000 E
Ir Shalem advocates the redivision of Jerusalem, and lobbies to
prevent Jews from purchasing property in the Old City section of Jerusalem
and its environs.

* Foundation for Middle East Peace – 310,000 E
The FMEP is, according to the Anti-Defamation League, “anti-Israel,
pro-Palestinian.” The FMEP has given funds to the anti-Zionist group
“American Jewish Alternatives to Zionism, Inc.” and to the magazine
Washington Report for Middle East Affairs, which U.S. Congressman Steve
Rothman (D-NJ) has described as “extremely anti-Semitic and filled with
messages of hate and bigotry.”

ZOA National President Morton A. Klein wrote: “The European
Community’s blatant interference in Israel’s internal affairs, by funding
extremist groups that support the Arabs’ positions, is yet more proof that
Israel cannot rely on the Europeans to serve as peacekeepers or even
neutral observers in the Middle East. The Europeans’ pro-Arab bias is
blatant and immoral.”
