The Geneva-based NGO known as COHRE has joined BADIL in publishing a highly biased political attack against Israel. BADIL’s agenda and activities have been analyzed in detail by NGO Monitor and COHRE’s director, Scott Leckie, is a former staff member at the PLO’s Palestinian Negotiations Support Unit. The 2000-2002 biennial report states “COHRE and BADIL are planning to jointly hire a lobbyist to co-ordinate a campaign to change policies within various UN agencies and States with regard to the right of Palestinian refugees to repossess the properties confiscated by Israel since 1947.” (p. 61) This report is part of that political campaign. COHRE’s donors include The Body Shop, Ford Foundation, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (Germany), Canada (CIDA), Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden (SIDA), United Kingdom (DFID), Smith Richardson Foundation, UN-Habitat Programme, UNHCR,UNIFEM, and the World Bank.
