Over the past 41+ years of this continuing Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territory, the US Jewish Lobby organizations were and still are one of the main supporters of the Illegal Israeli settlements spreads throughout the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Those US based Jewish organizations spared no efforts to provide the financial support to the Illegal Israeli settlement, or to any Israeli settlers’ organizations aims to strengthen the existence of the Jewish people in the 'Holly Land' (Israel).


The Hebron Fund is a US (New York) based Jewish organization founded in 1979, mainly to improve the life of the Illegal Jewish settlers of Hebron by funding the construction of new housing units and expanding the existing Illegal settlements in the city, building public parks, playgrounds, centers, synagogues, libraries as well.

Two years ago, the Israeli 'Yehudut Ahranot' newspaper revealed in an investigation report that the Illegal Israeli settlements in the OPT would not have thrived and grown had it not been for the big amount of dollars flowing from the American-Jews and the US-Jewish organizations, which had raised and dispatched more than $100 million USD in the past decade to help build and expand of the Illegal Israeli settlements and outposts in the occupied West Bank territory especially in East Jerusalem.


To Conclude

The Hebron Fund, One Israel Fund, American Friends of Ateret Cohanim, Christians Friends of Israeli Communities, along with other dozens of Jewish-US based organizations and associations are involved in a long-term policy aiming to influence the demographic balance in the occupied Palestinian territory in favor of Jews and compromise the Palestinians'' presence in spite of the fact that all of the Israeli settlements’ in the occupied territory are Illegal according to the International law rules  and conventions .
