Following NGO Monitor’s initial report, as well as protests from the Israeli government and embassy in Brussels, a group of Polish MEPs deriving from all main political parties decided to boycott the "International Conference of Civil Society in Support of Israeli-Palestinian Peace", that was held in the European Parliament in Brussels, August 30-31.  The boycott was to protest to many radical NGOs who dominated the conference and used it as a platform to advance the demonization of Israel and to call for international boycotts. Following the announcement of Poland’s decision, ­B’nai B’rith International issued a statement applauding the decision and calling on other nations to follow Poland’s lead in rejecting what B’nai B’rith called a "virulently anti-Israel gathering" and a "forum for anti-Semitism."  For more information on this conference, including an analysis of the presenting NGOs, click here.
