An evening with Gerald Steinberg, Professor of Political Studies at Bar Ilan University in Israel and president of NGO Monitor, and Todd Gitlin, Professor of Journalism and Sociology and Chair of the Ph.D. Program in Communications at Columbia University. Discussion was moderated by Deborah E. Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies at Emory University.
NGO Monitor’s experts provide cutting-edge research and analysis on the funding and activities of self-proclaimed human rights NGOs involved in the Arab-Israeli conflict. Our staff has presented in Congress, European parliaments, the Knesset, the UN, and academic forums.
It is time for the UN to shed its image as a bastion of anti-Jewish hatred. Secretary General Guterres has taken important steps in this direction. UN adoption of the IHRA antisemitism definition and funding guidelines mirroring those of the EU would mark profound positive change.
Special Rapporteur Michael Lynk’s report proves why Canada was so disturbed by his appointment. The report has an antisemitic tinge, calling Israeli presence in the region avaricious, pathological, and rapacious, crudely resorting to bigotry as the complexities of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the thousands of years of Jewish history are erased.
The well-being of children is a cornerstone of international human rights as noted in the Vienna Declaration. Unfortunately, the UN agency charged with protecting children is failing to carry out its mandate. The Palestinian branch of UNICEF funds and partners with several NGOs that are closely linked to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist organization.
- Human Rights
- Human Rights NGOs
- NGO Support for Terror
- Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)
The international community has long ignored the Palestinian weaponization of children. The Palestinian Authority, Fatah, Hamas, and other armed factions routinize the grooming of children from an early age as combatants in the Palestinian war against Israel and Jews. They have enacted a widespread and systematic program of violent and antisemitic incitement.
On September 26, 2017, PFLP terrorist and plane hijacker Leila Khaled was hosted in the European Parliament by the GUE/NGL party. The audience, including Members of the European Parliament, gave her a standing ovation. NGO Monitor has compiled some of her more outrageous statements.

Lt. Col. (res.) Maurice Hirsch, Adv., former Head of IDF Military Prosecution for Judea and Samaria and current Senior Military Consultant for NGO Monitor speaks at the UN Human Rights Council.
In 1947, 33 countries at the United Nations voted in favor of the Partition Plan, recognizing Israel’s right to form a nation state. Today we see a change in this narrative at the UN, in Parliaments across Europe, and on college campuses. How and why has this narrative changed? Prof. Steinberg, President of NGO Monitor, and Elliott Abrams, Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, discuss this change and ways to move forward. Vivian Bercovici, former Canadian Ambassador to Israel, delivers opening remarks.
