In a February 2008 interview with the online blog Tadamon (entitled ‘Economics and Israeli Apartheid: E.U.-Israel Economic Association Agreement’) John Hilary of War on Want – an EU-funded NGO whose political activities have prompted investigation by the UK Charity Commission – uses language which mirrors past statements from War on Want demonizing Israel. Hilary criticizes the “E.U.-Israel association” trade agreement," because of "Israel’s abuse of Palestinian human rights” and its continuation to "effort[s] to legitimize the Israeli government."
