Terrestrial Jerusalem

Promotes a one-sided approach to the conflict, placing sole blame for the failure of the peace process on Israel. The complexities of the situation in Jerusalem – including illegal building and crime in Palestinian neighborhoods, damage to the Temple Mount as a result of illegal digging by the Waqf, and incitement to violence against Jews by extremist clerics – are erased.

UN-NGO Collaboration: The Ongoing Demonization of Israel

On June 8-10, 2009, the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People held a conference in Jakarta, Indonesia. The program represented the Palestinian political agenda, and was a platform for the demonization of Israel. Speakers were from highly politicized NGOs, including Miftah and Ir Amim, and all represented a narrow section of the political spectrum. Miftah claimed suicide bombings [are] a symptom of a much bigger problem, and Ir Amim contributed to the anti-Israel exercise. Another NGO discussed the Palestinian struggle against Israels occupation, ethnic cleansing and institutionalized apartheid over 61 years.
