IRS headquarters in Washington, DC. Photo: Internal Revenue Service. In the wake of ongoing accusations by pro-Israel organizations that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has been targeting them with extra reviews since 2009, a newly released document shows that the IRS defined “Occupied Territory Advocacy” as a category of nonprofit organizations meriting further inspection.

The document, released by Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee, classifies these organizations as “applications [that] deal with disputed territories in the Middle East… Applications may be inflammatory, advocate a one-sided point of view and promotional material may signify propaganda.”

The document also states, “If you see these cases, please forward to the TAG Group, 7830,” which works to identify groups with terrorist ties, according to the IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Determinations group, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

A previous investigation by the Free Beacon revealed at least five pro-Israel organizations that have been audited by the IRS. The pro-Israel organizations believe the IRS’s decision to audit them was coordinated by the Obama administration.

    For three generations, the “progressive” obsession with the destruction of Israel has been simmering just below the boiling point. Now a dumbed-down, self-absorbed, “politically correct” American Jewish community has been largely neutralized as a line of defense for Israel.
    President Lenin (who is morphing into President Stalin during his second term) has used the State Department, the Defense Department, and now the Treasury Department (the IRS) with alarmingly little outcry. Stealth jihadists (with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood through groups such as CAIR, ISNA, MSA, etc.) are increasingly infiltrating the upper levels of the U.S. Government. Again, with alarmingly little outcry.
    Israel will survive – despite American abandonment. We, the Jewish people, have survived worse during the past 4,000 years. But the other question is less clear … Will all but a small remnant (mostly Orthodox) of the American Jewish community self-destruct?

      “settlers”? why should’t jews be allowed to “settle” in the land of the jews? and why should the irs be complicit in supporting the racist ethnic cleansing of judea and samaria by arab terrorists?
