George Soros once said that assisting the Nazis was "the best time of my life."
At that time, he was a 14 year old and not in control of his fate. It is not clear why, as an elderly individual with billions of dollars to his name, he would want to continue supporting such evil.
It is even more inexplicable why he would secretly fund, to such a significant extent, an anti-Semitic hate group that uses propaganda as its tool, and Jews as its face. That group is If Not Now.
Is George Soros behind If Not Now?
- "According to its website, “If Not Now is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and all contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.” However, as of May 11, 2016, the organization has not published its 990 forms, an annual budget, donors or donation amounts, reflecting a lack of transparency and accountability." - NGO Monitor
- "If Not Now....postures as an independent volunteer grass roots anti-Israel group. In fact it's a group of J Street U people trying out a new brand....the If Not Now hate group evolved out of anti-Israel protests during Hamas' attacks on Israel....This is what your social media looks like if you hate Israel and want to see it destroyed....activists (in addition to Israel-hating, BDS-supporting Simone Zimmerman - DB) were also top J Street U people. Tamara Shapiro was J Street U's director, Yonah Lieberman co-created a J Street U chapter, Max Berger worked for J Street, Emily Mayer was with J Street U at Haverford....Despite claims of a split, If Not Now is just pursuing the exact same agenda as J Street U, protesting Jewish charities for supporting Israel, while claiming to be the voice of a new generation. It's the same scam with a new brand and slightly less of a paper trail." -"If Not Now, J Street's Latest Anti-Israel Front," Front Page Magazine.com, March 1, 2016
- "The Jewish-American advocacy group J Street, which bills itself as the dovish alternative to the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobby, has secretly received funding from billionaire George Soros despite previous denials that it accepted funds from the Hungarian-born financier and liberal political activist. Tax forms obtained by The Washington Times reveal that Mr. Soros and his two children, Jonathan and Andrea Soros, contributed a total $245,000 to J Street from one Manhattan address in New York during the fiscal year from July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2009. The contributions represent a third of the group’s revenue from U.S. sources during the period." "Soros Revealed As Funder of Liberal Jewish American Lobby," The Washington Times, September 24, 2010
- "A set of half-truths, non-truths and ambiguities from J Street lead a reasonable person to conclude that the group tried to conceal that George Soros has been one of its largest donors for the past three years, and to falsely claim that it had been "open" about those donations during that time....J Street called me up this morning and disclosed that it had successfully grown its fundraising since forming in 2007 and that Soros and his family have given the group $250,000 a year over the past three years, a fact that was in the process of being verified and reported by The Washington Times' Eli Lake. - "J Street's Half-Truths and Non-Truths About Its Funding," The Atlantic, September 4, 2010
- "As with many issue organizations of its ilk, much of J Street's funding is concealed....Since 2007, the largest J Street donors have been: George Soros & family, who have given approximately $250,000 per year over the past three years; Bill Benter, a Pittsburgh-based technology entrepreneur....The Skoll Global Threats Fund....The Nathan Cummings Foundation....Israeli American businessman Davidi Gilo and Deborah Sagner." - "Raising More Money, J Street Discloses Big Donors," The Atlantic, September 4, 2010
