Every once in a while, the anti-Zionist media come out with a breathless article about how there are organizations helping Jews in Judea and Samaria, and are considered tax deductible in the US. (The first, I think, was The New York Times in 2010.)

Keep in mind that there are many categories of organizations that are tax exempt in the US (including charitable, religious, educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering amateur sports competition, or preventing cruelty to children or animals), and that there is nothing in the IRS code that says that an organization that opposes current US foreign policy should lose funding. Such a law would be problematic, to say the least.

One of the organizations that offends Haaretz is Hatzalah Yehuda and Shomron, the first-responder ambulance services used by Jews in Judea and Samaria (the ambulance service also saves Arab lives.)

Haaretz looks at Hatzalah not as a lifesaving organization but as just another enabler of the most horrible crime that newspaper knows of: keeping certain Jews alive.

How much hate Haaretz has for its fellow Jews who want to live in their historic homeland!

As a friend mentioned to me, if Israel passed a law saying that organizations that are at odds with Israel’s foreign policy are ineligible for tax exempt status, Haaretz would be the first to call this a fascist law.

One other interesting fact: the self-righteous Haaretz accepted a grant from a tax-deductible organization to pay for the research to write this article.

    Funny how people soon forget, or are ignorant of, the fact that the IRS was discriminating against conservative and pro Israel groups with regard to tax exempt status.

  • Remember their ad: “Haretz-not what you thought” How correct. It’s even worse.
    By the way they did not cover or even mention the LITTMAN WEDDING WHICH EVERY OTHER PAPER FEATURED ON THE FRONT PAGE.

    Instead we should reconsider the tax exemption for the Red Crescent ambulance service which leaves Israelis wounded in terrorist attacks to die instead of following the rules of the International Red Cross. Haaretz has disgraced itself by this action.

    How sad that in the midst of another intifada and world terror, an Israeli paper, journalists, editors, publisher, would even consider denying support and life saving equipment to Jews. Obviously the Arabs, Druze, Bedouin, Christians will also benefit, but Israel haters really don’t care.

    Straight antisemitism.
    If you can’t deal with in-house antisemitism how do U expect to deal with outside antisemitism.

    Ah yes, the great self righteous humanitarians at Haaretz. So pure in their smugness they are willing to sacrifice the lives of those they do not approve of just to show the world how pure hey are.

    The Jews who publicly beat their breasts in the pages of the New York Times,Haaretz on Twitter or on TV. about how “conflicted” they feel because of what Israel has done in Gaza or in Israel itself are torn between two identities. One is a subordinate Jewish identity and the other is the dominant identity of the left. The left views Jews and the Jewish State as an “Other” and they see the scraps of their Jewish identity as an “Other”. A cruel murderous Nazi-like “Other” who senselessly kills children out of fanatical nationalism.
    The self-hating Jew is not a Jew metaphorically speaking. He is not part of the Jewish civilization moving through time. He may have a Jewish past, but he has no Jewish future.
    His malice causes damage in the present, but it is the frustrated act of a mortal man who knows that he has no future, that he will leave behind no legacy that a century of time will not wash away as thoroughly as the debris in the gutter.
    There are no self-hating Jews. There are Jews who hate the Jewish People. Their hatred excludes them from the thing that they hate. By Othering Jews, they only Other themselves. Their books, their petitions, their jokes and their protests, their boat trips to Gaza and their letters from 199 Rabbis Against the Occupation and all the other symptoms of their hatred exist in the present, but not the past or the future. In the totality of Jewish civilization across time, they are already gone.

    The Haaretz leftist “journalist” traitors are simply modern day Helenists spewing anti-Israel propaganda for their German master. They need to be made examples of, just like their relatives during the days of the Maccabees.

    then ambulances should not go when called to Haaretz board of directors, editors and all others who support this position

  • marlene

    Haaretz belongs in the sewer with the New York Times. Who actually reads these trash rags??

  • Sherlock Holmes

    Have you ever wondered about the ‘olam haba’ of the worst self-haters among Klal Yisrael? Are they sent back to earth in the reincarnation as Haaretz writers? Or are Haaretz writers just lost souls doomed to write rubbish for a working lifetime?
