The Israeli Left to Lose its Sugar Daddy?

1. No more Sugar Daddy for the Seditious Left?

Victory at Last? Forward reports that the Ford Foundation is pulling
out of funding Israeli sedition. Was the main funder of New Israel
Fund and radical leftist NGOs in Israel:

Excerpt: The foundation's decade-long partnership with NIF was
fraught with criticism over its choice of grantees and causes, which
were mostly on the liberal end of the political spectrum. This
criticism peaked after the 2001 Durban conference, where NGOs, some of
them funded by the Ford Foundation, backed resolutions equating
Israeli policies with those of the South African apartheid regime. In
response, the foundation adopted stricter criteria for funding, and
despite being blasted by Israelis, it decided to move ahead with the
first five-year $20 million grant.
"Ford Foundation has improved their grant guidelines since Durban-I,
but there are still concerns with funding practices," said Naftali
Balanson, managing editor of NGO Monitor, a Jerusalem-based watchdog
organization that has been a leading critic of not-for-profit
organizations that express critical views of Israel.
In the past year, NIF and other NGOs supported by the Ford Foundation
came under attack in Israel from politicians on the right and from
such organizations as NGO Monitor and Im Tirtzu, which claim that
groups support the delegitimization of Israel. The Israeli Knesset
passed laws requiring increased transparency of NGO funding and
initiated parliamentary hearings targeting these groups.
