Im Tirtzu stumps in D.C.


A right-wing Israeli group known for its attacks on human rights groups hostile to Israeli policies toured Washington to establish contacts and raise funds.

Im Tirtzu, which made its name last year with attacks on the New Israel Fund and affiliates, was represented in Washington by its founder, Ronen Shoval, and policy director, Erez Tadmor, Haaretz reported this week.

The two officials met with conservative activists and fund-raisers, the newspaper reported.

Im Tirtzu alienated some conservative backers with an advertising campaign that seemed to depict NIF chief Naomi Chazan as demonic, and with a call to divest from Ben Gurion University because of some of its allegedly left-wing professors.
