On January 12, 2021, B’Tselem launched a discriminatory and hateful campaign, under the banner of “A regime of Jewish supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea: This is apartheid.” In it B’Tselem attacked Israel’s role as a haven for the Jewish people (the Law of Return) and used the phrase “from the river to the sea” – echoing long-standing Palestinian terminology for the destruction of Israel.

In order to obtain responses from B’Tselem’s primary donors, NGO Monitor sent letters to European governments including the European Union, Sweden, Spain, Denmark, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Norway.
