Zwitserland, Zweden, Denemarken en Nederland steunen anti-Israel strijd via NGO's

 
Nederland subsidieert samen met andere EU landen radikale anti-Israel organisaties in de Palestijnse gebieden. Daarnaast subsidieert Nederland via ontwikkelingsorganisaties waaronder Oxfam-Novib, ook de Palestijnse strijd in Nederland, zoals Een Ander Joods Geluid en Stop de Bezetting.,

Het wordt tijd dat hier eens het mes in wordt gezet, en geld voor ontwikkelingshulp ook naar ontwikkelingshulp (en bewustwording daarover) gaat, en niet naar het zwartmaken van Israel.

Promoting Israel's Isolation:
Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands funding for NDC and NGOs

 
The NGO Development Center (NDC - Ramallah) has distributed $6 million to 25 NGOs on behalf of the governments of Switzerland, Sweden, Netherlands, and Denmark. The NGO grantees include some of the most radical groups operating in Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
 
NGO Monitor's analysis includes:
 
* Many recipients employ "apartheid" rhetoric: Al Mezan, Al Haq, Arab Thought Forum, Badil, ICAHD, Jerusalem Center for Women, JLAC, WATC, and Women for Life.
 
* NDC provides funds to PCHR, Al Haq, Al Mezan, Al-Dameer, Musawa, and WAC, which promote "war crimes" cases and lawfare against Israeli officials.
 
* Eleven grantees are signatories to the Palestinian boycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign: Addameer, Al Dameer, Arab Thought Forum, Al Mezan, DCI-PS, JCW, Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center, PWWSD, Ramallah Center for Human Rights Studies, WCLAC, WATC.
 
* Only 6 of the 25 groups focus on the "priority" issues of "gender equality and rights of women." Most link their work on women's rights with anti-Israel activism.
 
* NDC "facilitated" and funded the "Palestinian NGO Code of Conduct" which demands that Palestinian groups reject "any normalization activities with the occupier."
 
* NDC support is often in addition to other funding from the four governments to the same organizations.
