America First or IDF First? The Jewish State And Its Army Are A Priority
25 January 2017

Haaretz reports today that ''Jared Kushner's name was removed from a website of
a group raising money for Israeli army.''
A week ago the American president promised the American people that from now
on America will come first, but it seems as if for Trumps senior adviser
Jared Kushner, the Jewish state and its army are a priority.
Kushner is expected ''to play a major role in drafting Middle East policy in
the new administration,'' but can a Zionist Jew whowho raises money for the IDF
be a peace broker for the Middle East? Ill let you ponder over that one.
Apparently, the FIDF is a New York-based non-profit that raises tens of
millions of dollars a year to support a wide array of educational and social
programs that benefit Israeli soldiers and their families. Kushners name
appeared on the FIDF website as a member of the national board until just two
days ago. A day after Haaretz submitted questions about his continued
involvement on the board to both the organization and to a spokeswoman for the
Kushner family, his name was suddenly removed.
It is worth noting that although Kushner's name was removed from the FIDF's
website, yet it is unconfirmed whether he is still linked to this body by any
Earlier this week, when asked whether Kushner would continue to sit on the
FIDF board while serving in the U.S. administration as a senior adviser to the
president, a spokesman for the organization said: ''As a matter of policy, FIDF
does not respond to requests for information about donors, including donors
who are or were members of its board.''
