Peace Now worked hard to promote the forcible expulsion of thousands of Jews from Gaza. Peace Now conducts flights on a regular basis tracking Israeli towns and villages and providing information to the U.N., Europe and the Arabs. Peace Now flights have regularly passed military bases as well and photographed them from the air.
Right now Israel continues to live under a Peace Now government. Olmert's wife and lesbian daughter are both Peace Now members. And former Defense Minister Amir Peretz was closely tied to Peace Now. Even on issues that don't concern them such as the protests by Holocaust survivors, Peace Now made a point of defending Olmert.
But what is Peace Now?
Peace Now has fought hard not to reveal the sources of its funding. It has settled at least one lawsuit rather than reveal where its money comes from. But the sources increasingly point abroad. To the European Union.
Documents shared with the Knesset Interior Committee confirmed that the Peace Now organization received a budget in the amount of 50,000 Euros from the government of Finland to conduct intelligence activities in Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria, the Golan, Gaza and Jerusalem. In fact, it indicated in the Finnish grant request that it also received $100,000 from the Americans and 150,000 Euros from "European Foundations" for its “settlement watch project.”
A spokesperson for Peace Now stated that the "European Foundations" mentioned in their grant request to the Finnish government were actually funds from the European Union. In other words, Peace Now receives the bulk of its funding from other foreign European governments
Even more troubling are Peace Now's origins which were not grass roots as the myth often goes but manipulated from abroad. Peace Now functions effectively as a fifth collumn inside Israel, spying and undermining and waging a not so covert war against the Jewish State, funded by its enemies.
