EU-funded NGOs Promote the Palestinian Narrative in Jerusalem

Powerful political NGOs such as Ir Amim, BTselem, and ARIJ use foreign funding to advance agendas on Jerusalem that are in direct opposition to Israeli policies, thereby circumventing the democratic process on this highly sensitive issue. Two-thirds of Ir Amims annual budget comes from the EU and European governments. An EU position paper relied heavily on NGO reports. ARIJ baselessly accuses Israel of eras[ing] all trace of Palestinian existence in Jerusalem. BTselem asserts that Israel attempts to sustain the myth, that unified Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel.

ECs Partnerships for Peace 2007-8 NGO Grantees: Funding Conflict under the Faade of Peace

Many of the "civil society" organizations funded under the European Commissions Partnership for Peace Programme are active participants in the Durban strategy that exacerbates the conflict and promotes campaigns against Israel. Support for the tendentious activities of ARIJ, Ir Amim, Associazione Comunita Papa Giovanni XXIII, and Panorama was renewed. Support for radical ICAHD was not renewed. ARIJ "aims at disseminating information on Israeli colonization." Funding for Ir Amim constitutes an attempt to manipulate Israeli democracy. Participants with Associazione Comunita Papa Giovanni XXIII use the rhetoric of "colonizing," "massacres," and "ghettoizing."
