European Funding for Palestinian “Cultural Resistance”

The European Union and European governments budgeted €400,000 for funding to a number of Palestinian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for culture, art, and related activities. Detailed research and analysis reveals that many of the supported organizations utilize cultural activities to indoctrinate children and youth, promoting rejectionist and violent agendas. This report provides examples of this phenomenon and places it within the context of the EU’s concerns regarding funding to Palestinian NGOs claiming cultural agendas.

Factually Inaccurate and Legally Flawed: HRW’s 2017 Report

Human Rights Watch is a powerful NGO, with a massive budget, close links to Western governments, and significant influence in international institutions. Its publications reflect the absence of professional standards, research methodologies, and military and legal expertise, as well as a deep-seated ideological bias against Israel. HRW’s review of “Israel and Palestine: Events of 2017,” reflects these same methodological flaws, resulting in a highly skewed representation of Israeli domestic and international law.
