thePodcast: Who funds anti-Israel protests in Vancouver and beyond?

For the week of Nov. 26, 2023:

After October 7, the deadliest day for Jews since the Holocaust, pro-Palestine protests across North America and Europe have not only called for a ceasefire between Israel and the Hamas terrorist group. They have also called for the end of Israel.

Who are the organizers and who funds them?

That’s what host Bob Mackin asked Gerald Steinberg, the Jerusalem political science professor and founder of NGO Monitor.

Steinberg keeps an eye on hundreds of human rights charities, big and small, around the world, focusing on those that seek to delegitimize Israel. One of them is the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, operated by a Vancouver-based couple.

The rise of online influencers on popular social media platforms and electronic banking and cryptocurrency have made it easier for charities with political goals to raise money faster than ever. But it is also just as easy for a charity to keep its revenue and expenses secret.

“Banks are regulated, everywhere in the world, every democratic country, every country, to examine that they’re not doing things that are immoral, illegal,” Steinberg  said. “There are ethics, there are processes. In the NGO world, there is none of this.”

Listen to Bob Mackin’s interview with Gerald Steinberg of NGO Monitor.

Plus, headlines from the Pacific Rim and the Pacific Northwest.
