NGO Monitor Submission to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women Review of Israel
Instead of using the CEDAW Review to highlight genuine problems of gender discrimination, NGOs used the UN forum to blame Israel alone for violence against women.

On July 13 and 14, 2010, Israel was reviewed by the United Nations Human Rights Committee as part of its periodic review of country compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. To highlight the activity of NGOs in furthering the delegitimization of Israel within UN frameworks, in contrast to upholding the norms of universal human rights, NGO Monitor submitted its own report to the Committee.
The NGO Development Center (NDC - Ramallah) has distributed $6 million to 25 NGOs on behalf of Switzerland, Sweden, Netherlands, and Denmark. The NGO grantees include some of the most radical groups operating in Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Many of the recipients employ apartheid rhetoric and promote war crimes cases against Israeli officials, and some are active members in the Palestinian BDS movement. NDC facilitated and funded the Palestinian NGO Code of Conduct which demands that Palestinian groups reject any normalization activities with the occupier.
The Goldstone report is primarily based on statements, publications, and submissions from highly politicized and biased NGOs, many of which are funded by European governments. Beyond adopting the flawed methodologies and false claims, the funding provided for these NGOs links European governments to the Goldstone report, and its contribution to anti-Israel demonization. European-funded groups PCHR, Al Mezan, Al Haq, and Adalah are also at the forefront of the lawfare campaigns that abuse the universal jurisdiction provisions in the legal codes of a number of Western countries using allegations of war crimes.
Goldstone relies on statements, publications, and submissions from highly politicized and biased NGOs. This is inconsistent with the claim to have conducted a fact finding mission. By adopting the flawed methodologies, false claims, and distortions of international law from the NGOs, Goldstone renders his entire report and its conclusions invalid. The report includes more than 500 direct citations from NGOs that lack credibility. Goldstone and other members of the commission have conflicts of interest involving close links to HRW, Amnesty International, PCHR.
