NGO Monitor, meanwhile, has accused Amnesty International of hiring a researcher with an “extensive background in anti-Israel activism,” the London Jewish Chronicle reported. NGO Monitor says Deborah Hyams previously had volunteered as a human shield in Palestinian villages. She also had written that Israel was a “terrorist state” guilty of “ethnic cleansing” before she began working for the charity in 2010. When you hire someone like Deborah Hyams there’s no leg to stand on in claiming to have no bias,” NGO Monitor President Gerald Steinberg said, according to the Chronicle.“ NGO Monitor repeatedly attacks A.I. and other organizations that report on Israel. We do not give any credence to their comments,” Amnesty International said in a statement.
