News emerged Friday that George Soros is a major J-Street donor followed by accusations that the advocacy group mislead the public about its relationship with the billionaire known for his support of liberal causes and occasional criticism of Israel.
Tax forms obtained by the Washington Post's Eli Lake revealed that over the past three years the Hungarian-born American Holocaust survivor and finance guru has given $750,000 to the organization which sees itself as a left-wing alternative to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
Until Friday J-Street had a post on its Web site under a section called "myths and facts" which implied it had never received funding from Soros.
