Billionaire progressive George Soros has donated millions to pro-Palestinian groups, some of which have expressed sympathy to Hamas.
The New York Post traced over $15 million in donations to groups behind the anti-Semitic protests that have followed in the wake of Hamas' brutal October 7 attack on Israel.
Soros funneled most of the money through the Tides Center, a leftist non-profit with close ties to Soros and his non-profit, the Open Society Foundations.
Many on the left have justified Hamas' brutal terror as a response to decades of Israeli "occupation" and "apartheid," often drawing direct comparisons to alleged "white supremacy" in the United States.
Soros, a Hungarian-born Jew who fled the Holocaust, is one of the most prolific backers of the left in America and a top bankroller of progressive, soft-on-crime prosecutors. It's not too surprising that he sits at the convergence of the Palestinian cause and "woke" movements in the U.S.
Records show that Soros gave money to the U.S.-based Adalah Justice Project, which says its mission is based on recognizing "linkages between US policy abroad and repressive state practices at home."
On the day of Hamas' October 7 attack, Adalah Justice shared an image of a bulldozer ripping down a border fence with the caption: “Israeli colonizers believed they could indefinitely trap two million people in an open-air prison… no cage goes unchallenged.”
Adalah Justice Project endorsed a rally in New York's Bryant Park where protesters chanted anti-Semitic slogans and waved signs that read, “I DO NOT CONDEMN HAMAS."
Soros donated $800,000 to Adalah Justice Project's founding nonprofit, Adalah, an Israel-based "human rights" group that supports Palestinians.
Adalah thanked Soros' Open Society Foundations for "generously supporting our work on defending the human rights of Palestinians under Israeli control for many years."
Soros gave $30,000 to Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM), which supported the Bryant Park protest, and $60,000 to the Arab American Association of New York, a group co-founded by activist Linda Sarsour that helped organize a recent pro-Palestine protest in Brooklyn.
Additionally, Soros gave $650,000 and $400,000 respectively to Jewish Voice for Peace and If Not Now, groups that helped organize the Bryant Park protest and the occupation of the U.S. Capitol to demand a cease-fire in Gaza.
"Israeli apartheid and occupation — and United States complicity in that oppression — are the source of all this violence," Jewish Voice For Peace says on its website.
