Clarion Fund, Inc. is a non-profit organisation created in November 2006 by Rabbi Raphael Shore of Aish HaTorah.

It has produced and distributed several pro-Israel propaganda films, including the Islamophobic Obsession.



  • Aish HaTorah
  • HonestReporting
  • RadicalIslam.org
  • Hank Sheinkopf, a long-time Democratic consultant in New York, who worked on President Clinton's re-election campaign, was hired by Clarion in 2008 to respond to the press coverage resulting from the release of Obsession and accusations that the non-profit had overstepped its charitable aims.

In 2008, CF received a grant of $17,778,600 from right wing 'slush fund' Donors Capital Fund, which also funded Security Research Associates, a group run by Tom Trento who assisted in the distribution of Clarion's film Obsession.[1][2]
