NGOs, Antisemitism, and Government Funding: NGO Monitors Report to the 2015 Global Forum on Antisemitism
The ongoing government funding for NGOs that engage in antisemitic activities and utilize antisemitic rhetoric highlights the persistent double standard: Hatred of Jews is tolerated in a way that would be unthinkable for other racial, ethnic, or religious groups.
NGOs that claim to promote human rights often use antisemitic themes and imagery, including blood libels, theological antisemitism, new antisemitism, and exploitation of the Holocaust.
MIFTAH posted an article claiming that medieval blood libels "are based on real rituals and are not false as they claim." MIFTAHs funders include the EU, Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Ireland, Norway, National Endowment for Democracy (US) and International Republic Institute (US).
