The Open Society Foundations, a grantmaking network founded by billionaire George Soros, funds organizations that have publicly supported Hamas terrorism against Israel, according to a conservative watchdog group.

Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell and Vice President Dan Schneider wrote a letter to Soros and his son, Alex, who chairs Open Society, last week pointing out the foundation’s ties to pro-Hamas groups. The letter was exclusively obtained by The Daily Wire.

Hundreds of Hamas terrorists stormed southern Israel from the Gaza Strip on October 7, killing more than 1,400 Israelis and wounding thousands more in the deadliest single day for Jews since the Holocaust. The militants killed at least 30 Americans as well. Hamas is holding nearly 200 people hostage in Gaza, according to Israel’s military.

“‘Silence is complicity,’ President Biden told Jewish leaders on Wednesday. Those who hide in the shadows rather than publicly stand with Israel bear partial blame for the atrocities. In light of all of this, your silence is deafening,” the letter says.

The MRC letter went on to quote condemnations of Hamas from former U.S. presidents George Bush, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump.

“These forceful statements caused us to wonder how an organization like yours that claims to champion ‘democratic solutions’ and advance ‘human dignity’ would go underground as Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, fights for its very survival. We then discovered the reason,” Bozell and Schneider wrote.

“Our preliminary investigation has already uncovered multiple pro-Hamas grantees funded by you and the Open Society Foundations. Millions and millions of your ‘charitable’ dollars have flowed into these organizations, financing their filth,” they continued.

The MRC executives named seven groups that they said received donations from Open Society Foundations that also issued statements justifying Palestinian terrorism targeting Israel or spreading false claims about the Jewish state.

The Middle East Children’s Alliance, for example, posted a message on October 8: “We are witnessing the people of Gaza rising up to respond to decades of Israeli settler colonial violence. The US govt bears responsibility for its political, economic & military support of this brutal apartheid regime.”

The Palestinian Institute for Public Diplomacy posted on October 9: “As the international community is once again calling for [Israel’s] right to defend itself, we must remember who is the oppressor and who the oppressed.”

“Given that your donations have gone straight into the bloodstream of those who seek to exterminate Jews and push Israel into the sea, it is clear that you have an even greater duty to purge yourselves of your transgressions,” the MRC letter says. “Therefore, we call on you to disclose each of your pro-Hamas grantees, publicly disavow every one of them, terminate all your funding to them, claw back previously-transferred donations, and end your war on Israel and the Jewish people worldwide.”
