New York - Complaint Sent To AG's Office Alleges Taxpayer Funding Of Jewish Terrorism Abroad
New York - On the heels of a televised report in Israel profiling the Israeli nonprofit organization, Honenu, a complaint has been filed with New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office charging that taxpayers dollars, in both the U.S. and Israel, are being used to fund terrorist activity against Arabs.
JTA.org (http://bit.ly/1hb9aGA) reports that, according to the complaint filed by T’ruah; The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, nearly a quarter of Honenu’s $600,000 2013 budget—-a good deal of which is raised through its New York-based fundraising affiliate, the Central Fund of Israel—-was spent defending Jews awaiting trial for terrorist acts committed against Arabs in the West Bank or supporting their families.
The complain alleges Honenu “is doing exactly what Hamas and the PLO have been criticized for—-providing personal support, if not incentives, for those who commit terrorist acts against others.”
Reps for Honenu have yet to comment, but in the Channel 10 report a lawyer for Honenu, Zion Amir, assured that it “operates within the bounds of the law.”
