So much for spontaneity

The radical New Israel Fund has admitted that, far from being a spontaneous eruption of social protest, last summer's radical #J14 movement (the local version of the racist #OWS (Occupy Wall Street) movement) was the result of 'painstaking work of organizations, activists, academics, organizations and communities over the years.' I'm sure you're all shocked.
Though it earlier denied having any involvement with this past summer’s housing protests, a message posted to the radical leftist New Israel Fund’s website suggests otherwise.

“On July 14, 2011, something happened,” the statement reads. “The social protest, which erupted in unprecedented public dimensions, was largely the result of painstaking work of organizations, activists, academics, organizations and communities, over the years. During the summer months, tens of thousands of citizens organized themselves in new and existing organizations, virtual and community initiatives, local and national groups. Mapping the initiatives, which were initiated by Shatil and the New Israel Fund, outlines the role of this ‘big bang’.”

The website goes on to list the names of organizations and other initiatives that were established as a result of the housing protest and adds, “We see in the protest a part of the social change in Israel. This is the life work of countless activists, organizations and communities in academia, in the media as well as in the government and the business sector.”

“The struggle for an egalitarian, common and democratic state is a struggle that will determine the character of the state for generations. The protest and the organizations established by it make us more optimistic than ever,” the NIF concludes.
Saul Alinsky and the 'community organizer' in the White House must be proud of them.
