J Street Paid Big to Push Obama’s Nuclear Deal
זינדל

J Street, an extreme-left American Jewish political action group that claims to be pro-Israel but often acts against Israel’s interests, received more than half a million dollars ($576,000) to advocate for Obama’s controversial Iran nuclear deal. It was one of several recipients of money from the Ploughshares Fund, which worked with the Obama administration to sway public opinion in favor of the deal, according to the Associated Press.
The Ploughshares Fund was named in an explosive New York Times profile of Obama aid Ben Rhodes, in which the President’s chief spin doctor listed the central groups responsible for creating an “echo chamber in order to promote the deal, even when the White House’s official line didn’t jibe with the facts.”
The Associate Press says that the group’s 2015 annual report lists several organizations that received substantial funding to peddle the official Obama line on the nuclear deal. Among them was National Public Radio, which received a $100,000 grant for this purpose.
The mission of the Ploughshares Fund is to “build a safe, secure world by developing and investing in initiatives to reduce and ultimately eliminate the world’s nuclear stockpiles”.
Its behind-the-scenes advocacy for the Iran agreement came to public attention this month after the publication of a candid profile of Ben Rhodes, one of the president’s top foreign policy aides.
