|International Progress Organization: Analysis|
The International Progress Organization is an NGO that claims to promote tolerance towards all nationalities and cultures, as well as meaningful dialogue between nations. However, the strong consistent anti-Israel bias displayed in IPO publications and in statements made by IPO President Hans Koechler, as well as its tendency to erase the context of terrorism runs counter to IPO´s stated mission. Additionally, IPO´s participation in and dedicated support of the 2001 Durban Conference damages its credibility and reveals its highly political agenda.

I´lam Media Center For Arab Palestinians In Israel
Summary: Since NGO Monitor´s first report on I´lam in 2004, the NGO has continued to carry out programs to develop Arab media in Israel, and bring Arab affairs to greater public attention. However it has also persisted in disseminating politically motivated material that makes unsubstantiated claims, consistent with the Durban strategy, and frequently fails to provide sources and evidence for its assertions...
Analysis of NGO Funding: Finland´s Ministry for Foreign Affairs Development Cooperation
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs Development Cooperation is the international development arm of the Finnish Foreign Ministry. Its purpose is to provide humanitarian assistance and fund development projects in developing countries. However some of its funds are being diverted to promote politicized NGOs that contribute to incitement, such as the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group (PHRMG), Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), and the Jerusalem Center for Social and Economic Rights (JCSER). Funds also go (directly and via KIOS) to NGOs whose activities contradict the goals of the Ministry for Development Cooperation.
Special Report: "Absence of Credibility in NGOs Reports Quoted in US State Department Country Reports on Human Rights (Israel and the occupied territories) in the 2004 Report"
The U.S. State Department´s annual Country Reports on Human Rights are among the most widely read and important documents on the status of human rights, particularly in the Middle East...
The Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA)
The Swedish International Development Corporation Agency´s (SIDA) overall goal is "to contribute to making it possible for poor people to improve their living conditions". In the West Bank and Gaza, SIDA´s aim is: "To promote peace and the development of a democratic Palestinian state by mitigating the effects of the ongoing conflict, promoting the peace talks, facilitating democratic, economic and social development." However, significant funding is channeled through Diakonia and highly politicized NGOs, such as Al-Haq, the Palestinian Solidarity Association of Sweden (PGS) the Palestinian Independent Commission for Citizen´s Rights (PICCR) and ICJ-Sweden. Their activities and publications abuse human rights rhetoric to deligitimize Israel, and as a result, undermine efforts towards a peaceful end to the conflict.
Badil - Promoting an Extreme Agenda
The BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency & Refugee Rights, established in Bethlehem in 1998, is one of the most active NGOs in promoting extreme Palestinian political positions in the context of the conflict against Israel. Its declared goal is to "provide a resource pool of alternative, critical and progressive information and analysis on the question of Palestinian refugees and displaced persons." Its actions, however, focus on the use of the suffering of refugees as a political basis for maintaining the conflict with Israel and justifying violence...
World Bank PNGO Project: Support for Social Services diluted by Politicized “Portal”
The World Bank Palestinian NGO project (WB-PNGO) aims to support “the overall professional, and strategic development of the Palestinian NGO sector”. It has been relatively successful, compared to other funders. However, the NGO Portal funded by the World Bank is a notable exception, providing a platform for extremist political NGOs such as PCHR, Al Haq, the Jerusalem Center for Social and Economic Rights and ARIJ; and has been as source of funding for Al Mezan, which was involved in its development. These organizations are exploiting the World Bank’s resources for external attacks against Israel, (including the use of terms such as “apartheid”) rather than focusing on internal development objectives.
"American Near East Refugee Aid (Anera): Aid Activity Tarnished by Political Agenda"
American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA) is a major NGO that claims to provide "direct financial assistance and/or gifts in kind to Palestinian-Arab refugees and other needy individuals in the Middle East.” With a budget of over $24 million (2005) provided by the US government and a range of private donors and organizations, most of ANERA´s focus is on development assistance and emergency relief, and the quality of these programs is considered to be very high. However, as the following report demonstrates, this NGO also engages in biased anti-Israeli political activities, and its publications erase the context of terrorism and promote the Palestinian narrative while falsely claiming to work with “all people living in impoverished communities”. Such activity is inconsistent with ANERA’s proclaimed objectives.
