PCHR does an important job of describing intra-Palestinian human rights abuses. However, it is blatantly one-sided in its removal of the context of terror and disregard of human rights abuses committed against Israeli civilians, and also supports calls for political, economic, and academic boycotts against Israel.
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.
Yesh Din attempts to brand Israel as unaccountable to the rule of law as part of a wider “lawfare” strategy of pressing cases against Israeli officials in foreign courts and the ICC, in addition to petitioning the Israeli High Court of Justice to alter Israeli policy. These claims are based on oft-cited misleading statistics.
The Gaza-based Al-Mezan Center for Human Rights claims to be non-partisan in its declared efforts to promote, protect and prevent violations of human rights. However, Al-Mezan actively pursues a highly political anti-Israel agenda, while largely ignoring Palestinian terrorism. Its publications frequently promote false claims of Israeli war crimes and contribute to the erosion of the concept of universal human rights. Its donors include the Ford Foundation (2005) and the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation.
