“Jewish Earmark” set to double in 2016
As if we needed any more proof that the entire “Homeland Security” paradigm of American domestic security policy operates as a Jewish racket, we have even more courtesy of The Jewish Daily Forward this morning.
According to the Forward, the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee has “voted to more than double funding for the Nonprofit Security Grant Program to $25 million for the coming year.” Virtually all of the funds allocated to the Nonprofit Security Grant Program go to Jewish organizations for “security” purposes. The Forward is even bold enough to admit in its headline that the Grant Program amounts to a “Jewish Earmark”.
[…] The increase approved Tuesday by the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee for Fiscal Year 2016, up from the current $13 million, was actively supported by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, Agudath Israel of America and the Jewish Federations of North America. The full Senate Appropriations Committee is expected to vote on the funding on Thursday.
Funds from the security grant program are used to assist synagogues, day schools and other Jewish nonprofits in making their buildings more secure.
“We have seen a disturbing rise in threats and attacks on community institutions and, when finalized, the funds provided under the NSGP will not only keep our community safer it will also be a statement of solidarity and support in the face of such threats,” said Nathan Diament, OU executive director for public policy.
The increase in the appropriation for security grants is “a profoundly important development,” said Rabbi Abba Cohen, Washington director of Agudah. “It represents the subcommittee’s understanding that the terrorist risk to American lives is real and continuing and that the safety of these lives rises above political differences — that, in today’s world, more resources need to be devoted to increase the level of protection for our vulnerable institutions and populations, not less,” he said.
William Daroff, senior vice president for public policy and director of JFNA’s Washington Office, noted the importance of the grants. “These funds have been critical in protecting our communities. The increase comes at a time when anti-Semitism in the U.S. has risen by more than 21% between 2013 and 2014, and when terrorist groups like ISIL, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and Hezbollah continue to incite violence against Jews in the West.”
It is truly remarkable how effective the organized Jewish community is at communicating its message, lobbying the government for services and funding, and achieving success, with the government and political establishment eagerly acceding to their demands with very few exceptions.
We see the same tactics utilized by the organized Jewish community time and time again as well. The Jews hysterically hype a perceived “threat” (i.e., the rising tide of “anti-Semitism” or “terrorist attacks” against Jewish organizations) to their well-being and interests as a group, and then demand the government take steps to combat said perceived “threat” (criminalizing thoughts, ideas, and expressions Jews do not like to combat “anti-Semitism” or giving Jewish organizations millions of dollars for “security” in order to prevent “terrorist attacks”). And it works every time.
