At the height of the holiday season, NGOs, well-known charities, and church groups are once again exploiting Christmas to conduct political warfare against Israel.
NGOs that claim to promote human rights often use antisemitic themes and imagery, including blood libels, theological antisemitism, new antisemitism, and exploitation of the Holocaust.
Media statements from KAIROS and its supporters have claimed that there is no evidence that the organization was active in anti-Israel campaigns, such as BDS (boycotts, divestment, and sanctions). This information is inconsistent with information published by KAIROS. KAIROS published a strategy paper that endorses divestment from Israel, explicitly promoting the campaign in the U.S. Presbyterian Church and led by Sabeel. The text also describes KAIROS plans to coordinate these activities among its member churches.
KAIROS position on the right of return totally conforms with the Palestinian demands. This political advocacy on an extremely complex issue is inconsistent with KAIROS status as a humanitarian aid organization funded by the Canadian government. KAIROS also promotes the Palestinian narrative on the peace process, implying that Israel alone is responsible for continued conflict in the region. Also recognizes the possibility that sustainable and just peace may take the shape of one bi-national state for two peoples.
