New Israel Fund

The New Israel Fund has shown many instances of poor judgment, as NGO Monitors detailed analyses demonstrate. The large scale NIF support for what are often termed "civil rights" groups seeks to impose the American experience on the very different reality of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The October, 2007 NIForum (a week-long series of events across the USA) is a timid response to the growing dissatisfaction with and criticism of NIF. If they were serious, NIF leaders would hold a really open Forum, and welcome the long-overdue public debate.

Rights and Democracy (Canada)

Created by the Canadian Parliament in 1988, the Canadian government supplies 78% of Rights & Democracys budget. In 2009, R&D granted $10,000 each to Palestinian NGOs Al Haq and Al Mezan, through discretionary funds which have had little to no board oversight. These grants were repudiated at a January 7, 2010 board meeting. The controversy surrounding the grants led to the resignation of two board members, and some of the R&D staff demanding the resignation of the chair and other board members.
