NGO Monitor Analysis: 41st Session of the UN Human Rights Council

The 41st Session of the UN Human Rights Council continued the bias and hypocrisy that has come to define the UN in general and the UNHRC in particular. NGO Monitor was present, speaking before the Council and documenting the numerous false accusations made by self-proclaimed human rights NGOs.

New Israel Fund

The New Israel Fund has shown many instances of poor judgment, as NGO Monitors detailed analyses demonstrate. The large scale NIF support for what are often termed "civil rights" groups seeks to impose the American experience on the very different reality of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The October, 2007 NIForum (a week-long series of events across the USA) is a timid response to the growing dissatisfaction with and criticism of NIF. If they were serious, NIF leaders would hold a really open Forum, and welcome the long-overdue public debate.

Human Rights Defenders Fund (HRDF)

HRDF has funded “legal aid and defense to HRDs who face different forms of legal persecution” including “Israeli and Palestinian HRDs who participate in nonviolent protests against the Israeli occupation in the West-Bank; HRDs fighting for the rights of indigenous Bedouins in the Negev/Naqab desert in Israel; HRDs fighting for LGBTQ rights; Israelis of Ethiopian origin faced with police brutality and racism; and many more.”

Save the Children

Save the Children runs a number of projects in Gaza and the West Bank, implementing “programs in the areas of education, economic opportunities and psychosocial health… humanitarian assistance, child protection and youth development.” Despite a humanitarian mandate, some of these programs include major political and partisan advocacy that fuels the conflict, echoing the Palestinian narrative of victimization.
