US Government Funding Israeli Opposition?

Via Stacey McCain: U.S.-Backed Subversion in Israel?
Alana Goodman at the Free Beacon reports astonishing news:
A U.S. State Department-funded group is financing an Israeli campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and has hired former Obama aides to help with its grassroots organizing efforts.
U.S.-based activist group OneVoice International has partnered with V15, an “independent grassroots movement” in Israel that is actively opposing Netanyahu’s party in the upcoming elections, Ha’aretz reported on Monday. Former national field director for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign Jeremy Bird is also reportedly involved in the effort.
OneVoice development and grants officer Christina Taler said the group would be working with V15 on voter registration and get-out-the-vote efforts but would not engage in overtly partisan activities. She said OneVoice and V15 are still formalizing the partnership.
While V15 has not endorsed any particular candidates, it is working to oppose Netanyahu in the March elections.
Barack Obama and John Kerry need to answer for this.
If you track back to the original article, you'll find that the federal money has been given to these NGOs that oppose Bibi. While they oppose Bibi, they claim that the money they receive from the feds are not being used for this purpose.

However, money is fungible (look it up).  Money given to them by other sources is then freed up to be used to campaign against the current Israeli government.

The Obama administration is waging a secret war against the only freely chosen democratic government in the Mideast, and one of the United States most reliable allies.

Tax the NGOs
