Once Again, a US Democrat Administration is Interfering in Israeli Domestic Politics

An American hard-left NGO, the Movement for Quality Government (MQG), has been funding the recent anti-government protests in Israel.

The money was transferred to the Israel protest organizers via the US State Department which confirmed this funding calling MQG, a “non-partisan organization.”

This has received kickback in the Senate by Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), a member of the House Armed Services Committee,  who objects to the misuse of funds for MQG’s political meddling in Israel by saying, “The State Department should never fund foreign partisan organizations in allied democracies.”

Banks went on to say, “If the shoe was on the other foot, the Biden administration would accuse Israel of interfering in our elections. Congress should absolutely review the State Department’s potential funding of partisan politics in Israel.”

The origins of US governmental interference in Israeli elections go back to a piqued President Obama sending his presidential election campaign team of 45 staffers to Tel Aviv in 2013, headed by Jeremy Bird, to oppose the candidacy of Benjamin Netanyahu after the Israeli Prime Minister had travelled to Washington DC to publicly oppose Obama’s financial appeasement to Iran over their nuclear missile project by organizing an anti-Bibi election opposition team called Victory 15 working under the direction of a political consultancy firm called 270 Strategies.

Their central slogan was “Anyone but Bibi,” but their interference failed with Netanyahu winning the election.

Now the same strategy is being played out on the streets of Israel today with mass protests funded by the US State Department and the New Israel Fund.

Dressed up as a public protest against judicial reforms, in reality it is a replay of the “Anyone but Bibi” motif once again funded by a left-wing Administration antagonistic against the current Israeli government.
