(IsraelNN.com) Israel and the Jewish Agency are campaigning to give the Jewish state a larger share of Holocaust restitution funds, following a weak response from Israel for emergency aid during the retaliatory war against Hizbullah terrorists this summer.

Jewish Agency chairman Zev Bielski told reporters Sunday, “The Claims Conference is a very stubborn organization. We will continue this campaign until they give us our rightful seats at the table.” The Claims Conference is responsible for allocating hundreds of millions of dollars a year in restitution payments.
