The Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF) has funneled millions of dollars to Hamas and other deadly terrorist groups, according to a new report.
The RBF was founded by the five third-generation Rockefeller brothers: John, Nelson, Laurance, Winthrop, and David, all of whom are now deceased.
The organization portrays itself as a philanthropic foundation that seeks to “contribute to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world.”
However, a new report reveals that it has contributed more than $3.4 million to Hamas and other terrorist groups since 2018.
Andrew Kerr of the Washington Free Beacon expounded on this matter, naming several groups that benefited from RBF money.
One such group is Defense for Children International-Palestine (DCI Palestine), an extension of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
The group, which employs senior PFLP members, has received $165,000 from the RBF since 2018 to promote flawed research that seeks to de-legitimize Israel.
Because of this, the Israeli government declared DCI-Palestine a terrorist organization in October 2021.
Another recipient of RBF money is Education for Just Peace in the Middle East, a national organization working toward freedom, justice, and equality.
The group, which has received $580,000 in funding since 2018, was later accused of using its charity status to fund Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist organizations.
Jewish Voice for Peace has also received $490,000 from the RBF since 2019.
Protesters associated with the group reportedly entered a congressional office building to speak out against Israel on October 18.
This resulted in the arrest of roughly 300 demonstrators.
Aside from the three organizations he mentioned, Kerr said the RBF has given more than $2.2 million to other groups that have either justified pro-Hamas actions or blamed Israel for the October 7 terrorist attack.
More than 1,400 innocent people were killed in the incident, which involved Hamas operatives paragliding at a music festival.
The RBF was established in 1940 by the heirs of financier and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller Jr.
He was the only son of Standard Oil founder John D. Rockefeller Sr.
Former Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and his four brothers – all sons of John Jr. – spearheaded the fund.
Kerr noted in his article that the RBF “has been responsive to pressure from left-wing groups to amend its portfolio.”
Interestingly, the fund’s donations to entities with links to terror groups seem to be paying off.
Kerr pointed out how DCI Palestine has pushed the false claim that an Israeli airstrike was to blame for the Octpber 17 explosion at the Al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza that killed 500.
Its flawed statistics have also been cited by Democrats to push anti-Israel bills in the House of Representatives.
Back in May, almost 30 Democrats led by Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) introduced a bill accusing Israel of wrongfully detaining Palestinian children.
But even before Jerusalem designated it a terrorist organization in 2021, DCI Palestine’s terrorist ties had been public knowledge.
In 2018, the Jerusalem Post (JPost) reported that many of its top officials and board members had toes to the PFLP – which the U.S. branded a terrorist group.
Responding to the JPost report, RBF President Stephen Heintz defended DCI Palestine in a letter to the editor.
He told the paper’s editor that he was “convinced” none of the group’s resources funded terrorist activity.
