German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) Funds Palestinian Terror-Linked Groups and NGOs Promoting Hatred
The German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) funding is channeled to groups with ties to terror groups, that spread antisemitism, and that promote BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) campaigns against Israel.
Although Palestinian officials are often portrayed as the initiators and leaders, in practice, the campaigns are largely led by officials of Western institutions, including powerful non-governmental organizations (NGOs) active in the areas of human rights, international law, peace, and other normative objectives.
Professor Gerald M. Steinberg writes about UN-OCHA's propaganda war against Israel.
On December 18, European Court of Auditors (ECA) released a report finding a severe transparency deficiency in EU funding to Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).
Professor Gerald Steinberg and Olga Deutsch argue that policy makers and the international community overlook a significant impediment to deradicalization efforts within civil society, particularly in the context of providing development aid.
Olga Deutsch replies to accusations by PNGO that it pressured a Brussels newspaper to "silence Palestine in EU circles."
According to the US Department of Justice, NPA provided “material support” to Iran, Hamas, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) – designated terrorist organizations under US law. As a result of these partnerships, in March 2018, NPA settled a civil-fraud suit, paying a $2 million settlement to the US.
European funding for strengthening civil society should consider whether some NGO recipients may actually be contributing to shrinking civil space. At least one Palestinian organization uses control of foreign donations to enforce uniformity of thought amongst local NGOs.
German federal funding is allocated to, amongst others, political advocacy NGOs that promote BDS and lawfare campaigns, through direct and indirect funding mechanisms.
