FIDH is a Paris-based federation of 141 NGOs from 92 countries with consultative or observer status with several international bodies.

FIDH receives funding from international and national bodies and foundations, but it does not disclose the sources of its funding

These claims are based on oft-cited misleading statistics.

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.
