FORD FOUNDATION - PART A
By Elisheva Rubin (copyright 16-12-2004)
 
PART A
 
GREETINGS:
It was nice to see someone putting up a site on universities in Israel. However, it is disconcerting that your site bears no names of authorship. Shall I guess?
----------------------
I saw the listing of persons and groups at the dreadful January conference in Israel.
They are virtually all Ford Foundation.
-----------------------------------
FOR EXAMPLE, Miftah: is Hanan Ashrawi = Ford Foundation
-------------------------
Ford Search - MIFTAH
Hanan Ashrawi, Arab League Commissioner
{Does not include pre-2000 funding]
=======================================================
Miftah: The Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue and Democracy
For public debates, media-related activities, and workshops and toenhance the information dissemination capacity its Web site. EAST JERUSALEM  Peace and Social Justice  Human Rights International Cooperation   
 $ 200, 000  - 2002
Miftah: The Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue and Democracy
Support for developing effective media response and articulating Palestinian views on the crisis situation, including online press briefings and opinion pieces   EAST JERUSALEM    Peace and Social Justice Governance and Civil SocietyCivil Society    $ 100, 000  - 2001
Miftah: The Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue and Democracy
SUPPORT FOR CONVENING WORKSHOPS, PUBLISHING BRIEFING MATERIALS, AND DEVELOPING THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY UNIT TO ENHANCE THE INSTITUTE'S OUTREACH PROGRAM  EAST JERUSALEM Peace and Social Justice  Governance and Civil Society Governance
$ 250, 000  - 2000
=================================================
How about an article for your site, tracing each of them to their Ford Foundation funding?
I won't be able to be in Israel to go, but maybe you can help us to organize a protest at Ford Foundation headquarters in New York on the same day as the conference.
----------------------------------------
These Ford programs are intentionally doing what they are doing. It is their policy. The program head of the New Israel Fund in New York said to me that Israel is an apartheid state.
--------------------------------
I see that you are trying to promote donors to be cautious.
However, if you want to cut off funding for these really horrible conferences, and the terrible programs and anti-Israel professors, you need to go after Ford Foundation, and not the little individual donors as you seem to be doing. In fact, your approach might have the opposite effect, and make Ford Foundation money even more important to the recipients universities. You should really just target all of the Ford funded programs.
 
Below is just a little bit of the harmful effects of Ford Foundation money in Israel, Universities and more general attacks. I did not remember which "peace" programs were run out of which universities. I could get it if you want.
 
I copied the conference schedule for readers who do not now about it.
Thanks for listening, In Faith, Elisheva
ps - none of these programs of Ford's have signed the anti-terrorism agreements, legally required for 2 years. With attorneys, you might be able to just shut them down!
