Jewish institutions will receive the majority of U.S. federal funds designated this year to help secure nonprofit organizations.
Of $24 million in grants nationwide, Jewish groups have been awarded $19.6 million.
Perhaps this bears repeating.
"Jewish institutions will receive the majority of U.S. federal funds designated this year to help secure nonprofit organizations.
Of $24 million in grants nationwide, Jewish groups have been awarded $19.6 million."
"I'm very pleased because they only gave 308 grants around the country," she added, pointing out that the terrorist threat level in Phoenix is not considered to be as high as in port cities, such as Long Beach, Calif., where 24 of the grants were funded.
The only other grant in Arizona was $97,475 to the Jewish Community Services Center in Tucson. The maximum amount that could be awarded in any single grant was $100,000.
Only 308 grants around the country were given, and instead of being given to legitimate, possible terrorist targets, such as New York, Philly, Chicago... these were instead given to Jewish institutions in the United States.
Also interesting is that the $100,000 is the maximum grant, and the Jewish Community Services Center in Tucson received $97,475, pretty much a maximum amount possible.
Because those al Kaida people for sure have the Jewish Community Services Center in Tucson as their prime target...
Secure Community Network director Paul Goldenberg said he believes the potential for future attacks against Jews in America cannot be underrated.
Mr Goldberg, director of the Secure Community Network, is Chinese-American I presume?
I think he let the cat out of the bag here, as the "Jews as a victim" card is played perhaps a wee bit too often.
The research bears out Goldenberg's concerns.
"DHS conducted a two-phase assessment based on investment justifications and state, local and national law enforcement review," United Jewish Communities, the umbrella body for Jewish federations, said in a news release. "The result underscores a troubling fact: The Jewish community is at risk in a way and at a level not shared by other groups."
So al Kaida terrorists, when they attacked on 9/11, took great care to target Jewish targets only in America, right?
