NGO Monitor commends the UNHRC for its expected postponement of a discriminatory blacklist, but condemns the concerted efforts to single-out Israel among all the countries of the world.
Zochrot promotes a Palestinian “right of return,” which is equivalent to calling for the elimination of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people. It also supports a “one state” framework for the Arab-Israeli conflict, or a “de-Zionized Palestine.”
NGO Monitor sent a position paper to the UN Human Rights Council arguing that a discriminatory "blacklist" intended to defame and economically harm companies doing business with Israel violates international law, ignores due process rights, and promotes antisemitism.
FIDH is a Paris-based federation of 141 NGOs from 92 countries with consultative or observer status with several international bodies. In its mission statement, FIDH seeks to contribute to the respect of all the rights defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. While claiming to be strict and impartial in its work, FIDH shows a strong anti-Israel bias by focusing disproportionate resources on condemning Israel, selectively interpreting international humanitarian law, dismissing the context of terrorism, largely ignoring Israeli victims of terror, and denying Israels right to self-defense. FIDH receives funding from international and national bodies and foundations, but it does not disclose the sources of its funding
- 2014 Gaza War
- Adalah’s “Discriminatory Laws in Israel” database
- Commission of Inquiry
