Founded by Edward Said, Hanan Ashrawi, Azmi Bishara and others, Miftah, claims to promote "global awareness and knowledge of Palestinian realities" . However, some of its claims were exposed as fabrications in a December 2004 CAMERA report, and it routinely describes Israel as an apartheid state and characterizes Palestinian terrorists as "activists." MIFTAH also promotes a number of political campaigns including a petition to "End the Israeli Occupation" and the "National Initiative to Resist the Wall."
On April 9, 2015, Al-Mezan hosted a conference in Gaza about the opportunities for prosecuting Israelis presented by Palestinian ascendancy to the International Criminal Court (ICC). The event featured representatives from Palestinian terrorist organizations – Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) –as well as officials from leading NGOs and the UN.
The arrest of a United Nations employee on charges of funneling aid to Hamas further highlights the need for effective policies that address the risk of aid diversion, both on the part of the implementing organization and on the part of the funder.
