FIDH: International Federation of Human Rights (Paris)

FIDH is a Paris-based federation of 141 NGOs from 92 countries with consultative or observer status with several international bodies. In its mission statement, FIDH seeks to contribute to the respect of all the rights defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. While claiming to be strict and impartial in its work, FIDH shows a strong anti-Israel bias by focusing disproportionate resources on condemning Israel, selectively interpreting international humanitarian law, dismissing the context of terrorism, largely ignoring Israeli victims of terror, and denying Israels right to self-defense. FIDH receives funding from international and national bodies and foundations, but it does not disclose the sources of its funding

Amnesty International (AI)

Amnesty International disproportionately singles out Israel for condemnation, focusing solely on the conflict with the Palestinians, misrepresenting the complexity of the conflict, and ignoring more severe human rights violations in the region. Amnesty distorts international law, misusing terms like “collective punishment,” “occupying power,” and “disproportionate” in its condemnations of Israel’s Gaza policy.

BADIL - Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights

At the Durban Review Conference PrepCom (October 6-17), BADIL accused Israel of "systematic ethnic cleansing" and "institutionalized racism and discrimination" which "constitutes a root cause of consequence of the ongoing internal forcible displacement and dispossession of the Palestinian people." These statements are part of its campaign for the "right of return of the Palestinian people," and in pursuit of the "Durban strategy" of demonization. BADIL is funded by Trocaire (Ireland), Norway, Switzerland, Oxfam, and others.

The Danish government funds numerous Israeli and Palestinian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) directly through the Danish International Development Agency (Danida), the Danish Embassy in Tel Aviv, and the Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law Secretariat, and indirectly by outsourcing to church groups and aid organizations such as DanChurchAid and Oxfam GB. The Danish government also provides support to DanWatch, a vocal supporter of BDS (boycotts, divestment, and sanctions) against Israel.

Yesh Din- Volunteers for Human Rights

Yesh Din attempts to brand Israel as unaccountable to the rule of law as part of a wider “lawfare” strategy of pressing cases against Israeli officials in foreign courts and the ICC, in addition to petitioning the Israeli High Court of Justice to alter Israeli policy. These claims are based on oft-cited misleading statistics.
