The population (or so we are told) of Jews in the United States of America is 2.2%…

Well if that’s true then all anyone should have to do to realize the present reality we find this world in – is look at the first chart above.

To have this all nicely explained away (for those of you who prefer to ignore their own condition of cognitive dissonance) for your own state of mind see:

Jewish Groups Get Most Money From Federal Security Grants

(…) In 2010, 94 percent of the department’s nonprofit security funding went to Jewish groups that are, in the words of the Department of Homeland Security, ‘at high risk of terrorist attack.'”

Jews Face Special Risks, Napolitano Says

Homeland Security Secretary Defends Controversial Grant Program

Jews face special risks that require vigilance, though there is no “specific, credible threat” against Jewish targets, Janet Napolitano, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, told the Forward during a visit to the newspaper’s New York offices.

In a June 4 meeting with the paper’s editorial staff, Napolitano cited the particular exposure she said Jews face in explanation of a DHS security grant program that mostly benefits Jewish groups.

“Unfortunately there are risks attendant on the Jewish community that are not attendant on all other communities,” she said.

Listen to an interview with Napolitano by Forward editor Jane Eisner and Washington correspondent Nathan Guttman:

A Forward report found that the program for DHS security grants for not-for-profit organizations was tailored to the Jewish community and that almost three-quarters of its funds went to Jewish institutions.

“The fact that it ends up going to many Jewish organizations doesn’t in itself bother me,” Napolitano said. She added that she had seen no evidence that the money was misspent, and that she believes the grant program has been successful.

Tension levels within the Jewish community, Napolitano said, hit a peak this past winter, following intensified rhetoric between (the Jewish state) and Iran, and the indictment of an Iranian American in Texas for his role in an alleged plot by an Iranian official to bomb the Washington embassies of (the Jewish state) and Saudi Arabia. These concerns prompted Napolitano to hold a conference call with 200 Jewish communal leaders last February, in which she discussed the threats and the actions taken to ensure the community’s safety.

During her tenure at DHS, Napolitano added, threats to the Jewish community came from foreign entities, from homegrown extremists and from “hate crime type of activity.”

On another topic, Napolitano said that the DHS has decided to allow (Jewish state) citizens to enter the United States via a special fast-track program despite (the Jewish state)’s decision not to grant Americans reciprocal consideration, as the United States usually requires.

(The Jewish state)’s inclusion in the Global Entry program allows frequent visitors to the United States to complete a questionnaire about their backgrounds and thereafter enter the country by simply scanning their passports. Napolitano announced the decision to include (Jewish state) citizens in the program during a May 20 visit to (the Jewish state). A reciprocity requirement that has been applied to all other countries seeking to join the program was waived in the case of (the Jewish state).

“We have a special friendship with (the Jewish state),” Napolitano explained. “President Obama is very committed to that relationship, and we are looking for ways to express that commitment within the portfolio of tasks that the Department of Homeland Security performs.”

At the same time, Napolitano was noncommittal when asked about a push by some members of Congress and the (Jewish state) government to allow (Jewish state) citizens to enter the United States without tourist visas at all, as is currently permitted for citizens of some European countries. The administration, she noted, has not yet expressed its view on this proposal.

During her recent visit to (the Jewish state), Napolitano discussed with (Jewish state) officials the issue of securing borders while preserving the rights of refugees entering the country. (The Jewish state) has been dealing recently with a wave of anti-immigrant sentiment aimed at African migrants seeking refuge. Napolitano did not, however, provide (the Jewish state) with advice on the issue and would not comment on the (the Jewish state) government’s treatment of the Africans trying to enter the country.

On the issue of screening procedures in airports, however, the DHS secretary did make clear that the United States would not follow (the Jewish state)’s model. (The Jewish state) is known for employing screening techniques that profile air travelers based on their origin, ethnicity or faith. Security checks conducted at Ben Gurion International Airport routinely require one-to-one interviews. Napolitano said that the huge difference in scale makes screening via personal interviews impractical in the United States, with its scores of international entry points. “It’s against the law here to profile,” Napolitano added.

“(The Jewish state) has perfected a system that works very well there,” Napolitano said. “They do a terrific job. But it’s not a system we can just transport 100% to the U.S. It won’t fit.”

Napolitano also pointedly declined to criticize New York City’s controversial program of surveillance of Muslim organizations and individuals with no known or suspected ties to terrorism. She said New York remains a potential terror target and that she was not going to “second-guess” any local police department or the program, which civil liberties groups believe amounts to illegal domestic spying.

Did I say seventy-four percenters? How about ninety-seven?

U.S. Jewish NGOs to get 97% of Homeland Security’s defense grant in 2012

While the budget has shrunk in recent years, the threat to Jewish institutions has not changed; as a result, Jewish non-profits will receive a record percentage of the funds. (no threats according to Janet Napalitano)

Jewish non-profit organizations in the United States will receive 97% of the funds granted by the Department of Homeland Security for the fiscal year 2012, money which is aimed at dealing with security threats those institutions face.

In 2012, Jewish institutions in the U.S. will receive $9.7 million, or 97% of the funds intended for dealing with security threats, as part of the Vital Nonprofit Security Grants distributed by the Department of Homeland Security.

In 2009, when the white supremacist James W. von Brunn opened fire at the Washington Holocaust Museum, killing a guard, Jewish NGOs received over $9 million out of $15 million allocated to 227 non-profit organizations, aimed to “bolster the security of nonprofit institutions deemed by the Department of Homeland Security to be vulnerable to terrorist attacks.”

In 2010, Jewish institutions received $15 million of the total sum of $19 million distributed by Homeland Security.

However, in recent years the budget has been shrinking, while the threat level has not changed, resulting in Jewish non-profits – community centers, schools, hospitals, synagogues and charities – primed to receive a record percentage of next year’s non-profit funding.

“I’d gladly trade out threat level not to qualify for these grants,” William Daroff, vice president for Public Policy of The Jewish Federations of North America told Haaretz.

“Any non-profit in the largest urban areas can apply for these grants, and determinations are made solely on the threat level Homeland Security officials assess each institution faces.”

Daroff explained that most of the funds are usually used for the purchase of closed circuit TVs, vehicle barriers and blast proof glass, while a small amount is designated for training.

“In the post-9/11 era it’s clear that Jewish institutions are at an increased threat level, and we are briefed more often than we wish by the local and federal officials on potential threats,” Daroff said, adding that the “threats are there, but it’s always a struggle to ensure funds are there during these times of fiscal hardship, so the lobbying for them is a continuous process.”
