"Ilya Meyer’s ‘Equal value of all human life?’ (December 7) provided an excellent synopsis of the damage caused by the activities of Diakonia. The Swedish Aid group also provides significant funding to the Palestinian NGO Al Haq, a Ramallah-based "human rights" organization that focuses almost exclusively on alleged Israeli human rights violations and carries out a broader (unstated) concerted political agenda to isolate and demonize Israel." "The time for an independent review of government funding for NGOs like Diakonia and Al Haq is long overdue."
