Ford Foundation funds fascism

A new investigative report reveals the Ford Foundation is sending tons of money to anti-Israel movements:
Shortly after Oct. 7, the president of the Ford Foundation, Darren Walker, issued a statement on the foundation’s behalf. Walker, who has been lauded by Laurene Powell Jobs as an "optimist," a "realist," and a "prophet who speaks truth to our world’s most troubling demons," announced that the Ford Foundation would bankroll "immediate humanitarian relief efforts in Gaza and the Middle East."

"Administered by our colleagues in the Middle East and North Africa regional office," Walker said, "the resources will go to partners in the region to provide life-saving support and other essential needs to the affected Palestinian civilians in Gaza." The statement referred to "tragic events" that had occurred in Israel and Gaza but made no mention of who was behind them, instead expressing concern for the "anguish, pain, and suffering that countless families are experiencing in Gaza at this moment."

While the country’s leading universities have been under the microscope since Oct. 7, the nation’s top foundations have largely evaded scrutiny. Both, however, sit atop multibillion-dollar endowments and exert enormous influence on American politics and public policy: The Ford Foundation alone oversees the disbursal of approximately a billion dollars a year.

Where is that money going? A review of grants disbursed by the Ford Foundation’s team overseeing the Middle East and North Africa, led by Cairo-based regional director Saba Almubaslat, shows that several of the foundation’s grants have gone to organizations whose employees, events, and projects celebrated Hamas’s Oct. 7 terrorist attack and decried the "Zionist entity." They make little effort to disguise their hostility to Jews and the state of Israel.

The foundation’s support for such organizations stands in stark contrast with Walker’s denunciation of Henry Ford, the foundation’s founder and a notorious anti-Semite. Walker described the Ford Motor Company founder last year as "one of the twentieth century’s most virulent American antisemites" and argued that "all of us engaged in building a fairer, more just America ought to embrace our responsibility to speak out about this ancient strain of inequality—this category of caste—exactly as we call out racism, sexism, ableism, and homophobia."

Yet the Ford Foundation, under his leadership, has funneled more than $6.3 million since 2015 to two organizations—the Jordan-based Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development (ARDD), which is geared toward mobilizing "the untapped potential of … societies in the Arab region," and Action for Hope, a Lebanese non-governmental organization devoted to providing "cultural development and cultural relief programs" to populations in distress—that are fanning the flames of the ancient hatred.
In other words, no funding for treatment of Israeli rape victims and other survivors of the October 7, 2023 bloodbath by Hamas. Even foreign workers from countries like Thailand, Philippines and India clearly don't matter to the monsters running the store at the Ford Foundation, who're doing little more than throwing the company founder under the bus as a virtue-signaling camouflage for evil activities the Ford Foundation clearly hasn't abandoned. Consider: if Henry Ford ever supported Islamic jihadists in the past, then the modern managers of his institute have failed to elevate it above Ford's own evil deeds.

And this news compounds many of the reasons I won't buy Ford products at all. Period. Their modern overlords are no different from those of the past.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
