NGO Monitor has documented the recent intensification of the campaign by Israeli Arab NGOs, led by Adalah and Mossawa, to undermine the existence of the State of Israel. We noted Mossowa’s legal paper, "The Future Vision of the Palestinian Arabs in Israel" published in December 2006 and Adalah’s proposed new constitution in March 2007. This trend is now increasingly recognised, as is the need to reconsider the status of such NGOs claiming to promote universal human rights for Arab citizens, but actually working to deconstruct fundamental elements of the state. One of the major donors, the New Israel Fund, has belatedly come to review its policies.

"The New Israel Fund (NIF) gives a lot of money to organizations like Adalah, which played a central role in the provocative document [The Future Vision of the Palestinian Arabs in Israel" document], and this fact compelled Garber [executive director of the American branch of NIF] to engage in verbal acrobatics. They played a role, he says, but this is not the main issue for which they exist. If they become an organization whose principal objective is to implement the manifest, the NIF will have to reconsider [funding them]."
