America’s only officially state-funded Jewish “refugee” organization, the Hebrew Immigration Aid Society (HIAS), works full time to bring as many nonwhite—and mainly Muslim—invaders as possible into the US—but at the same time supports Israel which refuses to grant access to any of these “refugees.”
According to a Times of Israel interview with HIAS vice president, Rabbi Jennie Rosenn, HIAS, which was originally started to promote Jewish immigration into America, now works on bringing Third World “refugees” into the US.
To add insult to injury, this private Jewish organization is funded by federal grants from the US Department of State and the US Department of Health and Human Services, the UNHCR and private contributions, the Times of Israel added.
HIAS, the Times of Israel continues, “offers refugees a variety of free services, including legal assistance for gaining their rights and becoming identified for resettlement,” and Rosenn is the “rabbi who rallies American Jews for the global refugee cause.”
However, this rallying American Jews “for the global refugee cause” does not extend as far as allowing them to settle in Israel, but only in Europe and America.
The Times of Israel—which, as its name implies, is an Israeli-based newspaper, says that it has “been Rosenn’s task to engage American Jews with HIAS and the refugee issue, primarily in the area of advocacy aimed at significantly increasing the number of refugees allowed into the US.”
Part of this “HIAS advocacy” includes, Rosenn said, asking the Obama administration for an “additional 100,000 refugees per year.”
The Times of Israel continued: “According to a strategy devised by Rosenn, she and her staff work with congregations, lay leaders, and rabbis to raise awareness of the Syrian refugee issue on both the Jewish and national agendas.”
In addition, a December 2, 2015 HIAS letter “signed by more than 1,250 American rabbis was delivered to all members of Congress and printed as a newspaper ad.
Invoking the biblical commandment to welcome the stranger and the ill-fated 1939 voyage of Jewish refugees from the Nazis on the St. Louis, the letter warned lawmakers not to confuse an actual enemy with the victims of that enemy.
According to the report, the HIAS letter “made an impression in the corridors of power,” because a few days later, “Obama mentioned HIAS twice in his remarks at the annual White House Hanukkah party, and a HIAS client lighted the menorah.”
According to Rosenn, around “1,000 American Jews, motivated by High Holiday sermons on the refugee crisis by hundreds of rabbis (many of them incorporating material prepared by Rosenn and her team), have contacted HIAS asking to volunteer with the Syrian refugees.”
Rosenn admitted that Islamic terrorism was a potential problem, but said that her education was engaging in “education” to overcome these “fears.”
“Everyone is afraid of terrorism. The problem is that the fear became misplaced due to misinformation, which is amplified by politicians. There is a real lack of understanding of how the US resettlement program works,” Rosenn said.
Rosenn believes that anti-refugee rhetoric can be very toxic. “We as Jews know just how dangerous this rhetoric can be. And we also know historically that in our country’s more glorious moments, it has been able to overcome this fear and suspicion.
“This is a profoundly Jewish issue and this is an historic moment. Never before have Jews not been refugees, but rather in a position to help refugees. Jews want to respond,” she said.
However, in Israel, which Rosenn and every other official Jewish organization in the US, both secular and religious, fanatically support, absolutely no refugees of any sort, Muslim or otherwise, are allowed in.
For example, according to a report in the Jerusalem Post, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared that Israel “won’t accept refugees from Syria.”
The Jerusalem Post quoted Netanyahu as saying that the building of a “security fence” on Israel’s eastern border will stop the “flood of illegal migrants into the country.”
An earlier statement from Netanyahu’s office quoted the Prime Minister saying that “Israel is a small country, a very small country, that lacks demographic and geographic depth. Therefore, we must control our borders, against both illegal migrants and terrorism.”
It seems as if Jews in Israel can be concerned about Muslim terrorism and illegal immigration, but Europeans in Europe and America have to be “educated” out of such fears by Rosenn’s HIAS.
This attitude is not limited to American Jews. The World Jewish Congress (WJC)—the official representative body of all religious and secular Jewish organizations in the world, said in an official statement penned by its Deputy CEO for Diplomacy, Maram Stern, that “closing Europe’s borders is not the right answer to the refugee crisis.”
With staggering chutzpah, the WJC went on to say that it would be “immoral” of Europe to close its borders—even though this is exactly what the Jewish state has done.
To underline the hypocrisy, the WJC has an entire division devoted to “supporting Israel”—even though that state implements the exact opposite policy which the WJC demands of Europe.
HIAS is not alone in demanding that America accepts the nonwhite “refugees.”
The Anti-Defamation League’s national director, Jonathan Greenblatt, said in a formal statement that:
As Jews, we are particularly affected by the images of men, women, and children forced to flee their homes to save themselves only to find they are unwanted anyplace else. World leaders must not turn their backs on the fundamental commitment to refugee protection and should work to settle these families in a humane and just manner.
Once again, this doesn’t seem to apply to Israel. Of course, the ADL fanatically supports Israel and has an entire section devoted to explaining to its supporters how to defend Israel.
As if this was not enough, the Israeli state-funded foreign aid agency, IsraAID, has employees—Israeli nationals—on the ground in Greece and the Balkans, quite literally carrying the nonwhite invaders ashore.
Why do Jews all over the world demand that America and Europe accept millions of nonwhite invaders, while at the same time building walls to protect Israel and barring any invaders from entering their country?
This obvious Jewish hypocrisy cannot be an accident. It must be malicious—there is simply no other explanation.
