israel wants bigger slice of Holocaust Pie
Israel and the Jewish Agency are campaigning to give the Jewish state a larger share of Holocaust restitution funds, following a weak response from Israel for emergency aid during the ["retaliatory"] war against Hizbullah terrorists this summer.
Jewish Agency chairman Zev Bielski told reporters Sunday, "The Claims Conference is a very stubborn organization. We will continue this campaign until they give us our rightful seats at the table." The Claims Conference is responsible for allocating hundreds of millions of dollars a year in restitution payments.
Pretty ironic, eh?
Restitution from one holocaust goes to fund another.
