My Mideast Punchlines: say, cheese…..

Why is the Swiss government funding initiatives that call for the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews? The Jerusalem Post picked up on a report in the Basel-based Basler Zeitung which raises a lot of questions:

According to the report, since 2013, the Swiss government has funnelled nearly $700,000 to a human rights office in Ramallah that has functioned as a front organization, to avoid criticism by Western countries. The office is funded by Switzerland, Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden, and seeks to cover up the antisemitic work of its partner NGOs, the report said . . .

The Swiss government has not been transparent about whether their funding streams entail graft, the article said. In response to reports last year about alleged financial misconduct involving Middle East projects, the Swiss parliamentary body Bundesrat rejected a motion from MP Christian Imark in 2016 to ban taxpayer money for initiatives that spread “racism and antisemitism.”

So, what’s new? Swiss excuses for purloining the billions stolen from Jews and stashed in their banks by the Nazis are about as substantive as the holes in their cheese. But you can’t say they aren’t giving something back. ‘After all, the Palestinians are Semites, too, you know,’ is the probable excuse this time.
