Activities

  • MADRE’s political agenda is also reflected in the partnership formed with the Palestinian NGO Ibdaa, a “refugee community center” engaged in virulently anti-Israel activities.
  • MADRE’s publications on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are characterized by extreme distortions in the service of a political agenda, rejecting Israeli security concerns and placing Palestinian terror in the context of the “right to resist military occupation.”
