Submission to UN Human Rights Council on International Complicity in the Palestinian Weaponization of Children Must End

The international community has long ignored the Palestinian weaponization of children in the Arab-Israeli conflict. Ahed Tamimi, a Palestinian teen whose family scripts physical confrontations with Israeli soldiers and then widely disseminates the resulting videos on social media to demonize Israel and glorify “resistance,” is a representative example.

Submission to UN Human Rights Council on World Health Organization and NGOs Misrepresent State of Gaza Health

On February 13, 2018, Human Rights Watch (HRW), along with Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, Amnesty International, Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), and Physicians for Human Rights-Israel (PHR-I), issued a joint statement condemning Israel’s procedures for granting access for Gaza residents to Israel for medical treatment. The groups cite a December 2017 World Health Organization (WHO) document that claims that 54 Gazans died while awaiting approval to travel to seek medical attention in Israel or in the West Bank. The WHO paper does not provide a source for this figure.

Submission to UN Human Rights Council on Setting the Record Straight on Detention of Palestinian Minors

Palestinian minors are unfortunately involved in a wide range of offences including murder, attempted murder, and illegal possession of weapons. Key contributing factors are incitement by the Palestinian Authority and recognized terror groups, recruiting of children from the earliest of ages to engage in conflict, glorification of violence and “marytrs”, and large monthly payments (that increase based on the severity of the crime) by the Palestinian Authority to prisoners and their families.

Submission to UN Human Rights Council on UNICEF and its NGO Working Group Fail Children in Israel and the Palestinian Authority

UNICEF plays a central role in a campaign to have Israel included on a UN blacklist of “grave” violators of children’s rights. The list appears as an annex to the UN Secretary-General’s annual report on Children and Armed Conflict (CAAC). This political agenda is a primary facet of UNICEF’s activities relating to Israel, completely inconsistent with its mandate of “child protection” and from its guidelines for neutrality and impartiality.

Submission of NGO Monitor to the 120th Session of the Human Rights Committee in Advance of its Reporting on Switzerland

NGO Monitor submitted the following information to the Human Rights Committee in advance of its adoption of the report and concluding observations for Switzerland. Switzerland provides millions of euros in funding to NGOs that promote entisemitism, anti-Israel national origin discrimination, violent imagery, and the so-called "right of return," a euphemism for terrorism.

Submission to Human Rights Council on Abuse of Human Rights Defenders Status

The Amuta for NGO Responsibility submitted a written statement to the Human Rights Council, demonstrating how the OHCHR and rapporteurs operating under special procedures mandates have failed to ensure adherence to the definition of a human rights defender, abusing the term and giving the impression of a UN imprimatur on individuals that promote incitement, violence, discrimination, and virulent antisemitism.
