(Worthy News) - Iran admitted on Sunday that it had worked closely with the Open Society Foundation, a grant-making network founded by American billionaire George Soros, which has often been accused of promoting an anti-Israeli agenda through left-wing NGOs.
During a question and answer session before the Iranian parliament, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Iranian regime's work with the OSF predated his tenure. According to the BBC, he said that he has managed to "restrict and regulate it."
According to a report published by Israel's Strategic Affairs Ministry, Soros has backed a large number of groups affiliated with the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, which seeks to isolate Israel. The groups have been blacklisted by Israel and their activists are barred from entering the country. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More...) ]
