Gerald Steinberg, the president of NGO Monitor, also voiced doubts that the partnership would last, but said that it could serve as a model if it ultimately works. “The Board of Deputies has taken a calculated risk by engaging in humanitarian cooperation with Oxfam while attempting to convince the organization’s leaders that anti-Israel demonization is immoral,” he said. “The initiative is certainly worthwhile, while the odds of success are low. Every statement from Oxfam on Israel will now be examined through a magnifying glass. But if the effort succeeds, the model can be extended to Amnesty [International], Christian Aid and similar groups.”
