    Arrow International Fellowship of Christians and Jews....

    Is all over local tv here, running ads that seek donations to feed starving, neglected Holocaust survivors.

    In ISRAEL.

    Dafuq? Are there any such people in Israel?

    I've been seeing those commercials also. Not the first I've heard about Holocaust survivors being in crisis.

    This article is from a year ago.

    The unlikely allies assisting Israelís Jewish Holocaust survivors

    Survivors are typically in worse physical, emotional and financial shape than others their age, said Yudit Setz, assistant director of ICEJís aid department. The effects of starvation, frostbite, torture (including medical experimentation) and lack of medical and dental care when they were children have followed the survivors into old age. Many were orphaned and now lack the familial support other seniors rely on.

    They've been running those ads on Fox News for like, forever.

    The spiel goes something like "they spend so much fighting terror they can't afford to feed their people".

    Doesn't Israel have a food stamp program?

    Why would FOX News want to defame Israel?

    I HOPE this is defamatory. I can't imagine Israelis allowing Holocaust survivors to starve to death.

    The war has been over for 72 years, there can be very few survivors still alive.

    If anyone is being defamed it's the "enemies" Israel is supposedly having to spend all their money defending themselves against, so much that they have no money left to look after the holocaust survivors.

    We seem to have helped them a little bit:


    Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $134.7 billion

    The Israeli government should be responsible, it is unconscionable that they are not.
