60 FEWER STORIES IN NOVEMBER DUE TO LOW FUNDS: WE NEED AND WELCOME DONATIONS TO KEEP US GOING: Please contact Michael Walsh for easy transfer details email@example.com
On November 5, 2003 billionaire financier and speculator George Soros, during a live interview at a conference of the Jewish Funders Network, enraged many of the Jews in attendance when he claimed that Jews themselves were responsible for the rise of antisemitism: When asked about anti-Semitism in Europe, Soros, who is Jewish, said European anti-Semitism is the result of the policies of Israel and the United States.
‘There is a resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe. The policies of the Bush administration and the Sharon administration contribute to that,’ Soros said. ‘It’s not specifically anti-Semitism, but it does manifest itself in anti-Semitism as well.’
‘If we change that direction, then anti-Semitism also will diminish,’ he said. ‘I can’t see how one could confront it directly.’
The billionaire financier conceded he, too, bears some responsibility for the new anti-Semitism, citing last month’s speech by Malaysia’s outgoing prime minister, Mahathir Mohammad, who said, ‘Jews rule the world by proxy.’
‘I’m also very concerned about my own role because the new anti-Semitism holds that the Jews rule the world,’ said Soros, whose projects and funding have influenced governments and promoted various political causes around the world. ‘As an unintended consequence of my actions,’ he said, ‘I also contribute to that image.’
In the past, Mahathir has singled out Soros (also Churchill, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán) and other ‘Jewish financiers’ for financial pressure that Mahathir said has harmed Malaysia’s economy. After the conference, some Jewish leaders who heard about the speech reacted angrily to Soros’ remarks.
Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, called Soros’ comments ‘absolutely obscene.’ ‘He buys into the stereotype,’ Foxman said. ‘It’s a simplistic, counterproductive, biased and bigoted perception of what’s out there. It’s blaming the victim for all of Israel’s and the Jewish people’s ills.’ Furthermore, Foxman said, ‘If he sees that his position of being who he is may contribute to the perception of anti-Semitism, what’s his solution to himself, that he gives up his money? That he closes his mouth?’
The one-day meeting on funding in Israel, which took place at the Harvard Club in New York, was limited mostly to representatives of Jewish philanthropic foundations.
After Soros’ speech, Michael Steinhardt, the real-estate magnate and Jewish philanthropist who arranged for Soros to address the group, said in an interview that Soros’ views do not reflect those of most Jewish millionaires or philanthropists. Steinhardt approached the lectern and interrupted Soros immediately after his remarks on anti-Semitism.
‘George Soros does not think Jews should be hated any more than they deserve to be,’ Steinhardt said by way of clarification, eliciting chuckles from the audience… Regardless of what they think of his politics, most Jewish activists likely would welcome Soros’ participation in the world of Jewish philanthropy.
George Soros is ranked as the 28th richest person in the United States by Forbes magazine, with a fortune valued at $7 billion. Soros claims he has not given much to Jewish or Israel-related causes because Jews take care of their own so his financial clout is better directed elsewhere – (in Jewish sponsored insurrections like the Black Lives Movement organisation).
A correspondent says, ‘Such powerful Jews are well aware that when they push the goyim too hard, the goyim will push back, and that push back is always labelled as ‘antisemitism’ by Jews who fear another pogrom. But it’s dishonest to claim that Soros doesn’t donate his money to ‘Jewish causes’ when in reality everything he sinks his money into, open borders and radical socialism, is a Jewish cause. Wrecking White Christian nations is a Jewish cause as is remaking them in a Jewish image. But until they attain their goal of a world Jewish Utopia, they will never admit anything they do is the cause of antisemitism. Source
