Activities

  • While CCPRJ seeks “to combat human rights abuses under the Israeli occupation through research and legal analysis, advocacy and human rights education,” the group regularly undermines peace and promotes false allegations against Israel through inaccurate reports and appeals to influential international organizations and officials.
  • According to website, “Coalition Members,” include highly political anti-Israel NGOs Adalah, Al-Haq, Defence for Children International-Palestine Section, Grassroots Palestinian Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign, Welfare Association, among others.
  • Ingrid Jaradat Gassner, coordinator of advocacy, is a major BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) activist and the former director of Badil, a rejectionist Palestinian NGO that awarded a prize in 2010 to an antisemitic cartoon.
  • In a July 2013 article on “How to Make International Law Work for Palestinians,” Jaradat Gassner rejects “peace diplomacy based on the Oslo framework,” the “so-called land for peace formula,” and existing international law, claiming that they “cover[] up the ongoing Israeli colonization, confiscation and annexation of Palestinian land and oppression of the Palestinian people” and force Palestinians “to recognize the status quo Israel has created in the part of Palestine it conquered in 1948.”
