SIPOs decision underlines that Soros' activities with funding of pro choice groups raise legitimate concerns of undue influence. I am moderately pro choice but when one side gets foreign funding the other side will too and that's the death of Irish democracy.
They are an international organisation. If the state successfully cut off their funding and effectively kill their model, they wont be in a position to stand up to the state when it matters

The activities of OSF raise the risk that Ireland and the EU will fall prey to "state capture" by a clique of billionaires overruling voters like happened in South Africa..

On the SIPOC complaint, in contrast to Amnesty propaganda the issue there is not funding of ngos per se, but funding to be used to campaign in an Irish referendum.

It is already bad enough.

And in SA the people have turned against the dodgy billionaires who invest in politicians.

In Ireland, the media is keeping it all under wraps, and castigating the people for daring to think such thoughts.

Ireland is the Banana Republic now.

And has the referendum been called yet?

So at the moment it is about funding in general.

Tin foil hat nonsense. Amnesty are an international organisation that take donations globally and put resources where they are neeeded. Now as it happens i dont think abortion rights are a topic they should touch, but they have. Squash their right to campaign on this and where does it stop?

Amnesty have long since lost any credibility they once had as a 'Human Rights' organization

It stops with the ability of billionaires interfering in (buying) national politics to sway elections for their own benefit or preferences ...a good thing surely.

As may be. But that doesnt justify a state clampdown on their activities while allowing other groups not even reguster.

Time for a proper discussion on this individual. He's described as a global philanthropist but safe to say his largesse is confined to pseudo-Liberal causes that include mass immigration and multiculturism. His funding fingerprints are all over organisations dedicated to progressing the secular agenda. His defenders have heretofore described any criticism of Soros as having its origins in anti-Semitism. That's why this Israeli criticism of Soros marks a new departure. Let's hear what posters have on this creep.
PS-apologies about typo in title
Secular agenda ?

:confused:

That wouldn't be what I'd hang him for.

anyway, ("Let's hear what posters have on this creep") here's something that should be highlighted

ceu.edu
the Central European University (CEU)
– while not formally attached to the EU it demonstrates the intertwined relations of the elites in the US and the EU

This is a graduate-level, English-language university accredited in both the U.S. (the State of NY) and in Hungary. The college offers degrees in the social sciences, law, public policy, business management, environmental science, and mathematics.

It is nicknamed the "Soros University" in reference to George Soros, the hedge fund manager and philanthropist who has provided an endowment of US$880 million (making the university one of the wealthiest in Europe). The CEU is the successor project of Radio Free Europe, involving many of the individuals in the organising group behind this vehemently anti-socialist body (the Free Europe Committee) set up by Allen Dulles of the CIA.

The CEU was set up in 1991 in response to the dismantling of the USSR with the mission to create a Western-modelled yet distinctly Central European institution that would foster inter-regional cooperation and educate a new corps of regional leaders to help usher in the transition across the region.

The college was located in Budapest, Prague, and Warsaw although disputes with govts saw it withdraw from the first two cities.

The "academic" venture demonstrates best of all the role of the EU in eastern Europe’s transition. Many of the graduates from the Soros University went on to fill staff positions in many Universities in Eastern Europe, particularly their Faculty of International Affairs. These faculties were re-created to provide a strong emphasis on relations with the EU, often being renamed "Depts of International Relations and European Studies".

These include:
- Masaryk University in Brno in Česká,
- Metropolitan University Prague in Česká,
- the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration in Bucharest in Romania,
- University of Nicosia in Nicosia in Cyprus,
- İzmir University in Turkey,
- University of Piraeus in Greece,
- Lazarski University in Warsaw in Poland,
- Rīga Stradiņš University in Rīga in Latvia,
- Vilnius University in Lithuania,
- Comenius University in Bratislava in Slovakia,
- Tallinn University of Technology in Tallinn in Estonia,
and International Burch University in Sarajevo in Bosnia-and-Herzegovina.

Has anyone yet observed on this thread how the OP title refers to "the peoplet", we might presume as a diminutive of "people", shortening the suffix -ette?

In that Soros is indeed the enemy of that body of citizens who are much less than they might be.

So here's a wild idea - stop being diminished, fearful, xenophobic, and perhaps Soros would cease to feel like an enemy to you.
This.
