HRW/FIDH/OMCT statement on NGO official linked to PFLP

On May 2 2007, three major NGOs -- Human Rights Watch, FIDHand the World Organization Against Torture (OMCT) -- published a joint press release calling on Israel to lift the travel ban placed on Shawan Jabarin, the General Director of Al-Haq. The statement alleges that Jabarin was barred by Israel from attending the annual Congress of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) in Lisbon on April 19, 2007, and that "Israeli authorities have not explained why the restrictions are in place". NGO Monitors analysis of this statement shows these NGOs entirely erase Jarabins links to the PFLP and the legitimate security concerns. The result is a selective research and ideologically biased analysis, similar to others analyzed in previous NGO Monitor reports.
