Description du produit

Revue de presse

A JOLT! Most people should and will be appalled to read the revelations in Financing the Flames. It is a jolt! Edwin Black has once again shown that the West, in general, and the United States, in particular, remain as complicit in supporting human-rights violations around the world today as they were during the worst excesses of the totalitarian regimes in the 1920s and 30s whether through the use of its military or its money. Rick Halperin director, Southern Methodist University Embrey Human Rights Program former chairman of the board, Amnesty International USA

RIGOROUS INVESTIGATION. Edwin Black takes us behind the scenes at the New Israel Fund, where an ostensibly progressive and humanitarian mission conceals on-the-ground activities that undermine Israel s very existence. Once again, his rigorous investigation demonstrates that following the money tells us far more about what s really going on than listening to soothing mission statements. As he proved in his series Funding Hate, which brought the mighty Ford Foundation to its knees, he s one of the few journalists able and willing to hold the world s largest foundations and nonprofits accountable for their carefully concealed activities. William Schambra director, Hudson Institute s Bradley Center for Philanthropy

EXTRAORDINARY JOB. Edwin Black, in Financing the Flames, does an extraordinary job of delineating the difference between the need to have dissenting views in a democratic society and when views have the negative consequences of undermining valued institutions in society. Black is able to recognize the many positive things that the New Israel Fund does for Israel while calling into question the impact on the Israeli military of other things they do. His examples of how certain anti-IDF activities are camera driven and how certain protestors may be encouraged by financial incentives are particularly troubling and require further exploration and discussion ... Black has made a significant contribution to the ongoing conversation on the role of NGOs in Israel and with respect to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Abraham Foxman, National Director Anti-Defamation League --Published Reviews

Présentation de l'éditeur

Edwin Black’s latest book, Financing the Flames: How Tax-Exempt and Public Money Fuel a Culture of Confrontation and Terrorism in Israel, pulls the cover off the robust use of US tax-exempt, tax-subsidized, and public monies to foment agitation, systematically destabilize the Israel Defense Forces, and finance terrorists in Israel. In a far-flung investigation in the United States, Israel and the West Bank, human-rights investigative reporter Edwin Black documents that it is actually the highly politicized human rights organizations and NGOs themselves—all American taxpayer supported—which are financing the flames that make peace in Israel difficult if not impossible.
Black spotlights key charitable organizations such as the Ford Foundation, George Soros’s Open Society Foundations, the New Israel Fund, and many others, as well as American taxpayers as a group. Instead of promoting peace and reconciliation between Arabs and Israelis, a variety of taxpayer-subsidized organizations have funded a culture where peace does not pay, but warfare and confrontation do. Ironically, several Jewish organizations, scooping up millions in tax-subsidized donations, stand at the forefront of the problem. At the same time, the author details at great length the laudable and helpful activities of such groups as the New Israel Fund; he chronicles a heartbreaking conflict between stated intent and true impact on the ground. In addition to documenting questionable 501(c)(3) activity, Black documents the direct relationship between taxpayer assistance to the Palestinian Authority and individuals engaged in terrorism against civilians.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ever wonder why NGO's criticisms of Israel are one sided? 24 avril 2014
Par HM - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Mr Black has an accomplished record, with IBM and the Holocaust being one of his best. He has in his career proved that investigative journalism has a role and can be published even though many publishers don't accommodate it. Black finds a way.

In this volume , Black speaks to all the principals in the NGO's. Basically, he points out that the way they are set up, it is IMPOSSIBLE for them to provide a balanced view of Israel. It is not their mission. The problem is that the various NGO's: New Israel Fund, Adalat, B"Tselem, Rabbis for Justice and others by mission ONLY criticize Israel. Its not that Israel does not deserve it its that there is not a chance of any other result with their mission the way they are. They cannot criticize Hamas, the Palestinian Authority or many others that really deserve it.

Some of examples are humorous. For example, a woman told them which bus to take to get to a protest "on time." They arrive at an Arab town that demonstrates every Friday in a tightly choreographed protest designed for the cameras. The instigator is being paid 85 dollars for every story she writes that can be picked up by various press. Another funny example is the Rabbis for Justice, who have a strident web site, solicit donations for olive trees for Arab lands that they know have to be uprooted by the Israelis. Again, the money is not really solicited for trees, but for press exposure.

A sad example though was the discredited Goldstone, Black shows us a young soldier who sacrificed himself, barely making it out of an ambush alive after being thought to have been moribund. He had led his troops into Gaza residential areas where Hamas men had hid rocket launchers among civilians, a violation of the Geneva Convention. To spare Arab civilian lives, and minimize destruction, the soldier was prepared to sacrifice his own life and that of his men.

However, the Goldstone report, which relies on the nonfactual NGO's, perversely paints Israeli soldiers as the war criminals and places soldiers from Israel at risk for prosecution at the International Criminal Court if they travel abroad. No malfeasance whatsoever is assigned to Arabs who hid the rocket launchers.

Per his habit, Black follows the money to discover that the various NGO's are the step children, 1 or 2 generations removed, from the Ford Foundation, that underwrote the anti Semitic Durban conference on racism about 12 years ago. Moreover the NGO's are all tax deductible in the United States, and thus the US is funding them (besides funding the Palestinian Authority, that spends a significant percent of US aid on paying "salaries" to prisoners in jail in Israel for terrorism). Thus the US is both funding terrorists and giving them naïve mouthpieces who deliver propaganda on their behalf.

In short, we are funding them, in the United States. And, we should arrange to stop doing so .

Edwin Black does his homework. I have read a few of his books and have never been disappointed. He documents everything. I recommend "IBM and the Holocaust" and "War Against the Weak " as well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extremely Well Presented Research on The Funding NGOs to Serve Political Agendas and Facilitate Terrorism 31 mai 2015
Par Phillip Jalowiec - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A jaw dropping expose on how NGOs are used for anti-Israel, anti-Zionism and anti-Semitic political objectives in Israel. No other government in the world, especially the United States would tolerate these incredible organizations funded by foreign entities including the EU contries seeking to undermine the will of the people in the only democratic country in the Middle East.

This is a must read book. Really disturbing to read about how money to 'charities' is funneled to organizations that are anything but.. let's hope that this is a wake up call to all those who give generously - without knowing who really gets the money

This book is very shocking on how Public Money and Tax-exempt money is spent by Muslims to harm us and take our country away from us.
