Last month, Capitol Hill became the site of an Israel-bashing event masquerading as a forum for children’s rights.
One of the event organizers was the non-governmental organization (NGO) Defense for Children International – Palestine (DCI-P). NGO Monitor, where I serve as a senior military justice consultant, has found that DCI-P has alleged ties to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which is designated a terrorist organization by the US, EU, Canada, and Israel.
At the event, DCI-P’s International Advocacy Officer Brad Parker gave a presentation based on a number of blatant distortions and outright lies regarding the Israeli military justice system.
Parker’s half-truths and blatant lies say much more about his organization and its agenda than they do about the Israeli military justice system.
