More Bill Benter donations to radical anti-Israel causes

Bill Benter's donations to J Street were consistent with his support for other radical anti-Israel causes.
His philanthropy in Hong Kong doesn’t stop there. Mr. Benter is an active member of the Rotary Club, and through an organization called The Advantage Trust, is a donor to charities such as Sowers Action, the Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children and the Hong Kong Cancer Fund. He is also married to a woman from Hong Kong, Vivian Fung Benter. The two, who married this year, regularly grace the news and society pages of the Pittsburgh press, where Mr. Benter is known as a businessman and philanthropist. Mr. Benter donated US$1 million to the University of Pittsburgh in 2007.

At a fundraiser for Hong Kong charity Camp Quality, Ms. Esdicul was photographed with actor Jackie Chan as a representative of The Advantage Trust, affirming the link between her and Mr. Benter. Camp Quality said it declines to comment on donors as a policy.


Mr. Benter has a history of donations consistent with his connection to J Street. According to political campaign contribution records, in 2008 Mr. Benter and Acusis were listed as donors to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign and the Democratic Party of Virginia. This year, The Advantage Trust donated to Israeli-based organization Rabbis for Human Rights.
Ah yes. Rabbis for Human Rights.

Is a message opposed to mainstream media a lost cause? 3 yr experiment:
http://bit.ly/dAJ5Vc If you want to tell the world something different. If you want to change an image of something. Can you go against the flow of mainstream media? What can you say to someone that consumes CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera or NY Times? The Internet was suppose to level the playing field for the “small voice” ~ but it still takes work, dedication and maybe some luck. What do you think?

Checked his company profile, he is very shy about putting his photo up with the other execs. His production is in India so his margins must be large.
