Gisha source submitted to the Israeli Supreme Court revealed as forgery


On July, 2007 Gisha, "The Legal Center for Freedom of Movement" petitioned the Israeli Supreme Court to allow Palestinian university students to leave Gaza to continue their studies abroad (the petition is in Hebrew; to view an English summary click here). The Associated Press checked Gisha’s submission and discovered that one of the documents submitted is a forgery. A Palestinian claiming to be one of hundreds of university students trapped in Gaza, is "apparently not a student and used what appeared to be a forged document to make his case to leave for Texas."  

Gisha is funded by the NIF, the European Union and other donors.  To view NGO Monitor’s detailed analysis of Gisha’s manipulation of the vocabulary of international law and human rights to promote a partisan ideological agenda, click here
