U.S. Homeland Security Allocates $9.7 Million To Jewish Nonprofits. (I Do Not Support!)

The Department of Homeland Security has allocated $9.7 million to Jewish organizations and facilities considered vulnerable to terrorist attacks.

The funding, announced last Friday, came from the DHS’s Nonprofit Security Grant Program, which aids nonprofit organizations that are at risk of terrorist threats and helps those organizations coordinate with broader security initiatives.

This round of funding was the program’s seventh allocation since its creation in 2005. The program has distributed a total of $128 million during that time, according to a Jewish Federations of North America news release.

“We are grateful that the Nonprofit Security Grant Program has emerged to supplement the work of local and federal law enforcement to help keep us safe,” said William Daroff, JFNA’s vice president for public policy, in the news release.

Shit like this is more likely to make them targets, I guess we all know what it's like to have limitless wads of money for nothing. Of course we would share the wealth with our friends ( contributors)? Yep,I'm distrustful of big government, watchlist me, get more security for your cronies.

This guy has

a good article regarding this issue.


Do fascism and philo-Semitism go hand-in-hand? It is an interesting question, and one could point to plenty of evidence in support of the affirmative side of the question. Take for instance Janet Napolitano. According to Wikipedia, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security is a Methodist, and is also “of half Italian ancestry.” The article doesn’t specify what the other half is, but does give us the following:

Janet Napolitano was born on November 29, 1957, in New York City, the daughter of Jane Marie (née Winer) and Leonard Michael Napolitano, who was the dean of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine.[3] She is of half Italian ancestry[3][4] and is a Methodist.[5] She was the eldest of three children; she has a younger brother and sister.

Some have speculated (here for example) that Napolitano’s mother was Jewish, but regardless of her origins or any religious beliefs she may or may not hold, Napolitano seems to have a deep love for Jewish people and holds their concerns rather dear to her heart. She has even diverted considerable resources from her departmental budget to ensuring their welfare and security. Of special interest is a DHS initiative called the Nonprofit Security Grant Program—designed to provide “target hardening” and “security enhancements” to American nonprofit organizations that are deemed “at high risk of a terrorist attack.”

Ironically, perhaps, it was a Jewish news organization, The Forward, that uncovered what appears to be striking preference given to Jewish organizations in doling out NSGP grant monies.

“The grants have been of tremendous value to this community. It is really unprecedented,” said Paul Goldenberg, national director of Secure Community Network, an umbrella organization devoted to addressing security needs of Jewish communities, an organization whose board of directors includes representatives from major Jewish organizations, including the American Jewish Committee and the ADL.

Goldenberg’s remarks were quoted in a Forward report published September 29, 2011 which found that a whopping 73.7 percent of NSGP grants between the years 2007-2010 went to Jewish organizations. Or to put it in round numbers, out of a total of 995 grants distributed, 734 went to Jewish groups. In August of 2011, just before the article came out, the DHS announced its grant recipients for the year 2011, and this time around Jewish nonprofits emerged even bigger winners—with 81 percent of the awards.

Acknowledging that the grant awards amount to “disproportionate distribution,” The Forward gives us a small sampling of what the money was used for:

The Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School, in Chicago, put in new lights around its building and parking lot and now has a state-of-the-art video surveillance system with 12 cameras. Congregation Brith Shalom, in Bellaire, Texas, now has blast-proof doors and windows. In Baltimore, the Bais Hamedrash & Mesivta school installed a new gate to the parking lot and placed cameras throughout the building. Earlier this month, Congregation B’nai Israel of Staten Island put new shatterproof windows into its 40-year-old building.

State of the art surveillance systems, blast-proof windows, and gated parking lots—while increasing numbers of Americans find themselves living in the streets. It would suggest—would it not?—that postmodern America is now being run in the interest of one ethnic group, to the exclusion of all others. Goldenberg is correct. It is unprecedented.

If you think Napolitano might hold any grudges against The Forward for making this information about her grant program public, you’d be wrong. On June 4, 2012, the DHS secretary met with The Forward’s editorial staff and did a podcast interview that can be accessed here in which she affirmed her belief that Jews face special risks the rest of us don’t have to worry about.

“Unfortunately there are risks attendant on the Jewish community that are not attendant on all other communities,” she said. She did acknowledge she knows of no “specific, credible threat” against American Jews at present, but then she added:

But I would also say that this is a world where we always need to be leaning forward, and we need to be thinking proactively, not just reactively, and that applies particularly strongly to Jewish institutions
