Like many misnomers about international law and Israel, distortions regarding proportional responses to aggression are central to NGO political advocacy campaigns that exploit legal rhetoric for demonization.
NGOs and their officials have focused almost exclusively on demonizing Israel for responding to the attacks and alleging “indiscriminate” and “disproportionate” violations, while at the same time ignoring Palestinian war crimes.
In the past 18-months, at least 15 political NGOs involved in anti-Israel advocacy, as well as their UN allies, have issued publications accusing Israel of “apartheid.” This offensive term is used to advance a narrative of unparalleled Israeli immorality, and to promote demonization through BDS and lawfare, including in the International Criminal Court (ICC).

- Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)
JCB (J.C Bamford Excavators), a UK-based manufacturer of construction equipment, has become a target of BDS campaigns due to its sale of equipment to the State of Israel. These campaigns, primarily from British NGOs, intensified in 2020 after JCB was included on the discriminatory UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) “blacklist” of companies operating in Israel, published in February 2020.
