Disgraceful: New York 'Jewish Federation' boycotting Judea and Samaria

The spiritual heirs of Stephen Wise are in charge in New York these days. The New York 'Jewish Federation' is boycotting the Jews o f Judea and Samaria (Hat Tip: Dan F).
Sadly, the European Union's decision to bind the 28 European Union member nations to label Jewish goods and services, and even academic research proposals from institutions and factories that have their offices or manufacturing facilities in Judea and Samaria is relatively recent yet no different than the "Gentleman's Agreement" that has been voluntarily adopted and implemented by the New York Federation for many years. The New York Federation does not cross the green line (known by many as the 1967 borders) unless of course it's to assist Palestinian Arabs, meaning that Jews who can benefit from the many programs that are funded and provided by the New York Federation for the citizens of Israel are effectively barred if they reside in Judea and Samaria.
Jews living beyond the green line have been voluntarily boycotted by the New York Federation despite the fact that there is no legal prohibition to support organizations or communities located in these areas not only according to Israeli law but also in accordance to American tax law. Any American dollar donated is fully tax deductible to the extent provided by law. This has not stopped the New York Federation from voluntarily boycotting 700,000 Jews along with the Europeans and the many enemies of Israel who have been behind the boycott movements throughout the world.
The most blatant example of this voluntary boycott by the New York Federation has to do with the victims of terror.The community of Itamar, located adjacent to the City of Shechem in Judea and Samaria has had no less than 22 of its residents murdered by Palestinian Arab terrorist, they have the highest terror murder rate of any community in Judea and Samaria, in Israel and probably in the world. The Fogel family massacre being the latest tragedy that this community has endured. They obviously would be the ideal community to be inundated with trauma interventions at all levels, community, family, individual, and children but essentially they have been untouched and boycotted by the Israel Trauma Coalition (ITC), an organization that was wholly established by the New York Federation, funded entirely by Federation donations, and operated according to Federation guidelines. The local Regional Council has helped with their limited resources, the very opposite of all other communities within the green line that have received generous trauma assistance by the New York Federation.
Judea and Samaria as a whole is the home of over 100 terror orphans. The New York Federation has invested ten's of millions of dollars in trauma resiliency programs and trauma treatment programs in Israel, and not one cent of direct funding has crossed the green line to assist these very special children. Despite the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria being on the front lines on the "War on Terror", the New York Federation would prefer to use funding to give exposure to those that support Boycott movements and the dismantling of the State of Israel rather than fund programs such as therapeutic horseback riding and music and art therapy for these very special children who have experienced and in many cases have witnessed the deaths of their parents and siblings. If New York Federation funded agencies can so blatantly boycott children who have lost their parents and siblings to terror, why should we be so surprised when the Europeans adopt a similar policy of boycotting Jews.
Disgraceful. And I'll bet unknown to the thousands of well-meaning New York Jews who donate money to the New York  'Jewish Federation.' Enough is enough. It's time to speak out against outrages like this one. I cannot but suggest that you make your charitable donations elsewhere.


The first sentence quoted does not accurately describe the European Union guidelines adopted last week if that's what the author had in mind.

Yes, a policy of way over 30 years or more, probably.

I discuss it with documentation extracts, here: http://myrightword.blogspot.co.il/2013/07/background-to-discriminatory-american.html

For donations, find out where the Obama IRS/other agencies' blacklist is falling and donate to them... so maybe Z Street? Or RJC affiliates? Or Tea Party type groups? I found out that one can by law donate to a C (4) group up to $4,999.99 without a name being attached to it. I was talking to a 501c4 guy and he said, you can donate to a 501c4 and you name only goes to the IRS, not to public reports. And I said, EXACTLY. But he thinks a cash donation can be made up to $4,999.99. But I need to find a tax attorney who can give a cited assurance of what the law actually is. It's a mystery to everybody except the Dems who assign on-the-clock govt employees to do Dem Party work. I know a bunch of people who have seen the blacklisting and are hiding under their desks, who *might* donate for research and postcard mailings. And I was asking (still with no answer) what an individual American is allowed to do with their own (after tax) cash.. can they do mailings themselves? It seems to me we are going to have to cut loose from letting the U.S. Govt Bureaucratic Dem Party pick and choose what Republican electoral efforts will be allowed by the Dictator Dems. The whole thing is ridiculous.

YMedad, good article and I always say that the number one argument that freezes normal Americans in their track re pressuring Israel to give up even more high ground, given the results out of Leb and Gaza...

- Do you want America to use our power to create a Judenrein country on land that all (still in place) treaties have said that Jews can live?

- Do you want America to use our power to strip property ownership from Jews?

People look like deer in the headlights when you ask those two questions. But I've come to the conclusion that the Israeli govt is not backing people in the U.S. who want full rights for Jews, worldwide. But rather backing the New Left Marcuse Marxist Democrat Party. So, good luck with that.
