Itai Reuveni, director of communications at NGO Monitor, told JNS that the killing of teenager Rina Shnerb was the catalyst that spurred Israel’s government to take action against the Palestinian NGOs.
The notion that Israel has been carrying out a decades-long crackdown on political activism in the PA territories is a baseless partisan allegation put forward by the very same organizations now blacklisted by Israel as terror organizations.
Israel’s Minister for Strategic Affairs Michael Biton said 'the distorted reality presented by Human Rights Watch is part of its ongoing political and obsessive campaign against Israel in recent years.'
Reuters, a major international news agency, falsely blamed Israel for water supply issues in a Bethlehem-area Palestinian village in an article published earlier this week, according to media watchdog HonestReporting.
A new report released Sunday claims that despite statements to the contrary, the German government has been donating millions of euros to groups promoting the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
A United Nations office has coordinated the donation of millions of dollars to NGOs that are highly critical of Israel, and has helped those groups disseminate their information, a new report by the watchdog group NGO Monitor has documented.
NGO Monitor research shows that NGOs pushed labeling is a first step in the BDS process, aimed at all Israeli products and services. This allows these NGOs to talk about the pre-1967 lines while actually targeting Israel within the 1948 borders.
The push for the European Union to label all Israeli products made in Judea and Samaria is part of a larger economic war by NGOs against the Jewish state, the Jerusalem-based research institute NGO Monitor said Tuesday.
