Israel’s Minister for Strategic Affairs Michael Biton said ‘the distorted reality presented by Human Rights Watch is part of its ongoing political and obsessive campaign against Israel in recent years.’
Reuters, a major international news agency, falsely blamed Israel for water supply issues in a Bethlehem-area Palestinian village in an article published earlier this week, according to media watchdog HonestReporting.
A new report released Sunday claims that despite statements to the contrary, the German government has been donating millions of euros to groups promoting the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
A United Nations office has coordinated the donation of millions of dollars to NGOs that are highly critical of Israel, and has helped those groups disseminate their information, a new report by the watchdog group NGO Monitor has documented.
NGO Monitor research shows that NGOs pushed labeling is a first step in the BDS process, aimed at all Israeli products and services. This allows these NGOs to talk about the pre-1967 lines while actually targeting Israel within the 1948 borders.
