Israeli human rights NGOs are “terror organizations,” claims Palestinian lecturer on PA TV

Official PA TV program The Supreme Authority, on Israeli “terror organizations”

 

 

 

International relations lecturer Khaled Sha’aban: “The most clever and harmful thing is that these [Israeli] organizations help the political parties in passing bills, and they raise bills. The organizations that we call terror organizations raise bills.

For example, the Israeli Nation-State Law (see note below -Ed.) was proposed by a group called Im Tirtzu, which blossomed in the Israeli universities and academia, and it deals with the affairs of the 1948 Palestinians (i.e., Israeli Arabs) - students and lecturers - and accuses them of terror. It is working in the academic and scientific institutions.

There is another group called NGO Monitor, and this group also helped to pass laws like the law [to disclose foreign government funding] of NGOs.

These two organizations, NGO Monitor and Im Tirtzu, are some of the human rights organizations in Israel, take note, and their central role as human rights organizations is to deal with the Palestinians’ affairs from the Israeli angle.”

 

 

 

Jewish Nation-State Law – law passed by the Israeli Parliament on July 19, 2018, which codifies in Israel's Basic Law that Israel is the home of the Jewish nation with Jerusalem its capital, and the Hebrew calendar its official calendar. It establishes Hebrew as the sole official language and grants Arabic a special status, and it recognizes Jewish and Israeli holidays, memorial days, and the Jewish Sabbath as national holidays and days of rest - while guaranteeing the right of all Israeli citizens and residents to celebrate their holidays and days of rest. The law, which passed with 62 in favor, 55 against, and 2 abstentions, has sparked controversy within Israeli society.
