Israeli Coca Cola franchisee donated NIS50,000 ($13,850) to fascist Israel Im Tirtzu in 2015, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth has revealed.
After the donation was made by Coca Cola, the extremist and fascist Israeli right-wing group asked the Israeli corporations authority to keep the donation confidential.
The Israeli corporation authority refused the request from Im Tirtzu director Matan. The Coca Cola franchisee in Israel is known as the Central Bottling Company or Coca-Cola Israel.
Im Tirtzu has led several campaigns that raised an uproar, including one against Israeli Arabs marking the Nakba (Catastrophe), when more than 700,000 Palestinians were forced out from their homes in 1948.
Meanwhile, the organisation accused certain human rights groups such as Breaking the Silence and B’Tselem of being “moles” or “plants” working against Israel.
In 2013, a judge ruled against Im Tirtzu in a libel case, but he wrote that although Im Tirtzu’s principles did not mirror those of fascism, there were “similarities” between the two.
