Gerald Steinberg demonstrates how antisemitism in the UK goes far beyond the British Labour Party, and is found on university campuses and among groups claiming to promote human rights and other liberal values.
Gerald Steinberg claims that BDS campaigns are clearly a form of discrimination based on double standards and singling out Israel, as the Jewish state, for attack.
NGOs, Antisemitism, and Government Funding: NGO Monitors Report to the 2015 Global Forum on Antisemitism
The ongoing government funding for NGOs that engage in antisemitic activities and utilize antisemitic rhetoric highlights the persistent double standard: Hatred of Jews is tolerated in a way that would be unthinkable for other racial, ethnic, or religious groups.
Amnesty International-UKs decision to reject a campaign against antisemitism in the UK highlights the hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy of what was once a leader in human rights advocacy.
While Amnesty International may be considered the most prestigious international NGO, the organization is tainted by a number of scandals. In addition, systematic research shows that its publications contain systematic flaws, erroneous claims, and consistent bias 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.
