This is a wonderful organization with a progressive mission and a deep commitment to human rights. I have seen the New Israel Fund's work firsthand and can attest to its value.

Openly supports anti-Israel people and organizations. Also employs people who equate the IDF to Hamas, and who try to endanger Jews and Israel supporters by breaching their privacy, safety, and security.

NIF is openly outspoken against the Jewish State. Its condemnation of Israel is more virulent that that of Israel's foreign enemies. I urge people to desist from contributing to NIF if they are pro-Israel, pro Jewish Israel, and are for the existence of Israel.

Biased leftists' bunch bent on supporting pan-arab nationalism, socialism & pathological hate of religion. Engaged is brainwashing gullible public by false claims & visious bolshevik propaganda. Have roots in failed Meretz, various socialist, marxist & leftist ideologies. Policies & activities supported by leftist bureaucrats of U.S. State Dept., incl. clintons, indyk & other Oslo War criminals, guilty of appeasing arab terrorism & murders of over 1000 israelis (2000-2011). Irresponsible outfit never took any accountability... instead, continues criminal activities to arm & instigate terrorists for more murders!!!

New Israel FUND (NIF) tries, and usually is successful, to have a humanistic/philantropic image. But their activity suffers from a radical left universalistic motive, which contradicts the will of the majority of the citizens, and the recognized purpose of the state of Israel. NIF consistently supports the evil radical nationalistic Arab attempts againt the state of Israel and against Jewish people, both as a group and as individuals. Recently it has been exposed that most of the arguments raised by the unfair and misleading Goldstone's report, came conciously and directly from organizations which are supported by NIF. Already in the ninetties I had become familiar with the bad direction of NIF. I was a volunteer in Neemnei Tora VaAvoda, a modern moderate religious, and non-political movement. For a single year this movement succeeded to get a small budget from NIF. Accordingly I attended in a meeting of all organization supported by NIF, and was shocked to realize there who are our colleagues. It seems that NIF also realized that Neemnei is not the one to contribute to the undermining attemts of NIF, So NIF didn't renew the funding for Neemnei. The misleading nature of NIF is perhaps demonstrated also by its name. The title New Israel Fund might be understood that the existing state of Israel is not good enough, and should be transformed or replaced by a totally other political entity, New Israel. This possible interpretation is hidden from the Israelis, because in Hebrew the name is the translation of New Fund for israel.

This fund strengthens the enemies of the Jewish poeple. In 2008, NIF distributed over $20 million to over 300 NGOs in Israel. Approximately 20% goes to NGOs that engage in political activities related to the Arab-Israeli conflict, including some that reject the legitimacy of Israel as Jewish democratic state, and are active in boycott and similar campaigns.

From 1987 - 1999 I lived in Israel. I was teaching violin in a Suzuki program for mostly small children, where the parents are involved too. We worked with Arabic and Jewish families in Ma'alot - Tarshiha and other villages. Many contacts and some friendships were formed. At that time NIF supported us. That is how I got interested. I have supported NIF ever since. In my opinion it is an excellent organization, and very necessary, today more than ever.

It is only through the efforts of such groups as the New Israel Fund, that Israel as a Jewish home land has a chance to survive. I know of their activities though a discussions with one of their employees, and feel that they are working for the best possible out come for both the Jews and Palestinians.

I attended the second NIF Womens tour (ages ago) and recommend their tours to anyone who has been to Israel but would like a different take on the country. NIF does important work in making a wonderful place better.
