“In Truth, My Israel is Dead,” Dame Vivien Duffield

One of the UK’s largest donors to Israeli charities has said she considers the country as she knew it to be “dead” and that “every step” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu takes “is a catastrophe.”

Dame Vivien Duffield, (in mid of pic) chair of the Clore Duffield foundation, talked of her “hate” at what has happened to the country in an interview with Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, which appeared in the Hebrew language version of the paper.

She described the country’s new Nation State Law as “Apartheid. It is South Africa – one law for one group and another law for the other.”

“In truth, my Israel is dead,” she said. “Hate is a strong word, but I loathe what’s taking place in Israel.”

In 1979, Dame Vivien assumed the Chairmanship of the Clore Foundations in the UK and in Israel, after the death of her father, the British Jewish financier Charles Clore. She established her own Vivien Duffield Foundation in 1987, and the two foundations merged in 2000 to become the Clore Duffield Foundation.

The foundation has given significant sums to British institutions, both non-Jewish – such as the Tate and the Royal Opera House – and Jewish – it was a driving force behind the establishment of the JW3 Jewish Community Centre.

Over the decades Dame Vivien’s foundations have also donated extremely large sums – as she told Ha’aretz, “a few hundred million pounds at least” – to Israeli charities and infrastructure projects, including the Weizmann Institute and the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem, as well as a number of Beit Hachayalim (free hostels for soldiers), libraries, parks and women’s shelters.

“Every step Mr. Netanyahu takes is a catastrophe, and it is very difficult to defend Israel right now, to represent it in England,” Dame Vivien said.

“In 1967, a week after the war, my father and I flew over Israel, we came to the West Bank and saw the Arabs who lived there.

“I was naïve. I told my father the best thing we could do was to build a swimming pool and sports hall in every village and town. I think it could have been much better than what happened in the end – today the situation is getting worse, more and more settlements are being built.

“I think Israel will not survive in the end, not the Israel I knew, I honestly do not think that in 50 years Israel will exist as Israel, look at demography, how many Arabs will be there be in another 50 years’ time?”

She also said she would be more “choosy” over the distribution of funds within Israel in future.

“Our foundation contributes to the science, education, health and well-being of Arab society in Israel, for the diversity and different population that lives in Israel, and we are the first to support projects for the Arab and Bedouin community,” she said.

“That will continue to be part of everything we do.”

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
