For right wing demagogues and antisemites (like Glen Beck or Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad) Soros is a stand-in for the old stereotype of the International Jewish Financier who controls the world. His position on Israel also creates doubt among some Jews: “Soros has been strongly criticized in some Jewish circles over his calls for increased U.S. engagement in the Middle East peace process and his strong criticism of Israeli policies. In recent months, some pro-Israel advocates and pundits have slammed J Street for accpeting his money and then lying about doing so.” -- http://forward.com/articles/133080/
