NGOs Promoting the Palestinian "Right of Return"

In addition to misrepresenting UN General Assembly Resolution 194, which does not mandate a wholesale "right of return" as alleged, the NGOs completely disregard the Jewish refugees from Arab countries who were driven from their homes following the establishment of the State of Israel.

Update on KAIROS (Canada) in the Arab-Israeli Conflict

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.

HRW Hires Another pro-Palestinian Activist

The addition of Nadia Barhoum, a pro-Palestinian campus activist, to HRWs Middle East and North Africa Division, increases the political bias reflected in the activities and backgrounds of Sarah Leah Whitson, Joe Stork, and previous staff. This is inconsistent with HRWs claimed "even-handedness and accuracy." Barhoum was an active member in Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at the University of California, Berkeley. SJP promotes the Durban agenda of demonization of Israel, divestment from Israel, and uses terms such as "apartheid" and "mass atrocities" in reference to Israel.
