Activities

  • In July 2003, published non-political report on effects of conflict on Israeli and Palestinian civilians condemning Palestinian bombing of Israeli targets without artificially ‘balancing’ the report with condemnations of Israeli defensive actions.
  • February 2005: Highly politicized report by MDM, Physicians for Human Rights – Israel and Palestine Red Crescent Society marked major departure, with focus on Israeli security barrier. This report ignored the context of Palestinian terror and the claims lacked credibility.
