Are US Taxpayers Forcibly Subsidizing Synagogues?

Are US Taxpayers Forcibly Subsidizing Synagogues?

In 2014, the Jewish Daily Forward reported that the Department of Homeland Security allocated to Jewish institutions $12 million, or 94 percent, of $13 million in funds for securing nonprofits.

Henry Makow has a Ph.D. in English Literature from the University of Toronto in 1982 and is the author of best-selling books such as Cruel Hoax: Feminism & New World Order and Illuminati: The Cult that Hijacked the World.

Jonas E. Alexis: The “Holocaust” has always been used as a weapon. In fact, it has been used as a manipulation tool to seduce the masses both in academic circles and in the media. As we have pointed out in the past, Jewish historian Tim Cole of the University of Bristol, England, has written extensively on this very issue. The title of Cole’s study is Selling the Holocaust: From Auschwitz to Schindler—How History is Bought, Packaged and Sold.[1]

Jewish scholar Norman Finkelstein argues that there is a “Holocaust Industry” out there, a machine which constantly produces lies and fabrications as historical facts. The same machine is also in the business of sacking billions upon billions of dollars from banks around Europe in the name of Holocaust reparation.[2] So there is an ideological purpose to keep the Holocaust Industry alive and well. But it is not just the Holocaust that is financially draining America and much of the West. Henry Makow has more to say about this.

Henry Makow: Almog Peretz wounded during a shooting at a suburban San Diego synagogue in April is suing Chabad of Poway.[3]  Peretz says that the synagogue did not have proper security despite a rise in anti-Semitic attacks nationally and that it did not use a $150,000 grant to upgrade security. In their defence, Chabad said, “The grant we were approved for did not cover security guards.”

Are these grants another way ZOG USA favors the Chosen? 

“Chabad of Poway received $150,000 from the government in March because the synagogue “believed that it was at risk of an anti-Semitic attack on its congregants,” according to the suit. But on the day of the attack, court documents show, the building’s doors were unlocked and no guards, gates or other security measures were in place.

The lawsuit references a 2014 ruling in which the California branch of the Hasidic Jewish movement Chabad-Lubavitch was found to have misused federal funds meant for security upgrades and was forced to pay $844,985 to the government in damages and returned funds.”

In 2014, the Jewish Daily Forward reported that the Department of Homeland Security allocated to Jewish institutions $12 million, or 94 percent, of $13 million in funds for securing nonprofits.[4] The $13 million disbursed last week brings to $151 million the amount disbursed since the program started in 2005, most of it to Jewish institutions.

Jews receive 94% of grants despite the fact that in the last 50 years, over a hundred black churches have been firebombed. Not one US synagogue has been burned down.

In 2019, at least three black churches were the target of arson. In 2015, nine African Americans (including the senior pastor, state senator Clementa C. Pinckney) were murdered by Dylann Roof, left, during a Bible study at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Three victims survived. This church is one of the oldest black churches in the United States, and it has long been a center for organizing related to civil rights.

There have been two shootings at US synagogues, Poway and Pittsburg. The Tree of Life – Or L’Simcha Congregation[a] in the Squirrel Hill neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The congregation was attacked during Shabbat morning services. The shooter killed eleven people and wounded six. It was the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the United States.

As political tensions increase, it’s inevitable that churches and synagogues will become targets of fanatics. The question is, should these institutions pay for their own security? And if the government does, shouldn’t it be more equitable?
