פרופסור ג'ראלד שטיינברג מגיב למאמרו של שגריר האיחוד האירופי. השגריר פירט את המימון שמעביר האיחוד לחברה הפלסטינית, אך לא עסק בנושאים רבים הקשורים למימון זה, המשפיעים לרעה על התפיסה של הציבור הישראלי את האיחוד ואת המדינות החברות בו.
פער עמוק נטוע בין נתניהו הריאליסט לבין אובמה הדמוקרט-ליברלי. אולם פרופ' ג'ראלד שטיינברג מזכיר כי גם רוזוולט, צרצ'יל וסטאלין עשו מה שהיו צריכים לעשות חרף העוינות.
האיחוד מסתיר את פעילותו בישראל מתוך הבנה שחשיפת הניסיון להתערב בהחלטות ישראליות מורכבות תגרור תגובות שליליות. הוא גם חושש מדיון ציבורי שיראה כי הדבר מנכר מיליוני ישראלים, אשר אינם תומכים בארגונים קיצוניים.

Prof. Gerald Steinberg writes that transparency should be the focus of the ongoing debate about foreign government funding to NGOs in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza.
פרופ' ג'ראלד שטיינברג מסביר כיצד המימון האירופי רחב ההיקף ל"ארגונים לא ממשלתיים" בישראל אינו מקדם זכויות אדם, אלא משמש כלי במלחמה הפוליטית נגד ישראל. אם האיחוד האירופי והמדינות החברות בו, שחלק גדול מהן חברות בנאט"ו ומעורבות במלחמות משל עצמן, באמת מאמינים שכוחות הביטחון הישראליים אשמים ב"פשעי מלחמה", הם צריכים להציג האשמות אלה בגלוי ובמישרין, ולא באמצעות מימון מסיבי של ארגוני "חברה אזרחית".
Prof. Gerald Steinberg highlights the lack of action by NGOs and the international community as rockets continue to rain from Gaza into Israel.
Prof. Gerald Steinberg explains how Hamas and other terrorist groups exploit Palestinian children for attacks against Israeli citizens. Unfortunately, this is ignored by NGOs that claim to campaign for child rights.
This monograph analyzes the reporting of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch regarding the 2008-2009 conflict in Gaza and southern Israel. Their factual and legal claims, particularly relating to Israel's use of White Phosphorus and UAVs, are considered in light of military sources, state doctrine, and the academic literature.The analysis demonstrates that many of the NGOs' factual claims are contradicted by expert sources, and that in numerous instances, their presentation of international law is inaccurate or incomplete.
Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland contribute millions of dollars annually to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that include some of the most radical groups operating in Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The scope of funding from these countries is extensive compared to NGO support from other European governments. NGO Monitors research details the levels of Scandinavian funding received by specific NGOs, as well as the anti-Israel advocacy and demonization campaigns in which these NGOs engage often in direct contradiction to the humanitarian, peace, and human-rights agendas they claim to espouse.
NGO Monitor has published a highly detailed examination of European Union (EU) funding of political NGOs in the Arab-Israeli conflict. The fifty-page report, Europes Hidden Hand, provides the first in depth analysis of this important area, and reveals that between 2005 and 2007, the EU provided tens of millions of Euros from public money to NGOs whose activities directly contradict EU policy. The report also uncovers and analyzes the lack of transparency and accountability in EU funding of NGOs in this region.
Kenneth Roth, the head of Human Rights Watch, opened a recent response to critics of his statements on Israel ...by referring to his fathers "escape" from Nazi Germany. Roth often uses this theme in addressing Jewish audiences. In a November 2004 interview with The Jerusalem Post Roth also began his defense by referring to his fathers "stories of life in Nazi Germany until he fled in summer 1938." Roths ...frequent use of this issue suggest that their parents relationship to the Holocaust gives [him] special standing and immunity to criticism. Roth states that "my personal existence is very much a product of human rights abuse," implying he has a moral duty to campaign against such abuse whenever and wherever it takes place, and that Israel should not receive special treatment...
A Malaysian newspaper recently published an article headlined "Israel deliberately targeting civilians, says Human Rights Watch." Turkish newspapers ran similar items, repeating HRWs statements that "Israel intentionally bombs civilians."...
It is too early to know where Palestinian Authority president Yasser Arafats departure will lead, but for the first time in many years, there is some reason for optimism. Many obstacles must be overcome, but Arafats successors have a chance to move away from armed struggle, incitement, and efforts to erase Israel from the map. To foster this process, they must first end Palestinian chaos and use massive aid for economic development instead of channelling funds to private accounts and illegal arms...
Gerald Steinberg argues the moral complacency of the media's effort to substitute neutral words to describe unspeakable acts of brutality of terrorist groups.
