A report from Zionist watchdog group Im Tirtzu revealed Tuesday that some $40 million in funding from the UN was funneled to Palestinian NGOs that support terror and BDS from 2016 to 2020.
All of the 19 Palestinian NGOs that received UN funding support BDS, and eight of them have clear ties to Hamas or the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terror groups, the report said.
One group which received tens of thousands of dollars in funding from the UN, Al Haq, calls itself a human rights organization. Al Haq has ties to the PFLP, supports the Palestinian Authority’s pay-for-slay policy and is a member of the Palestinian NGO Network (PNGO), which refused to sign an anti-terror pledge.
Another group that received over $1 million in funding, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), has extensive ties to both Hamas and the PFLP.
“Their names are innocuous and mislead people into thinking they promote human rights, but in reality they peddle malicious anti-Israel agendas,” said Eytan Meir, director of external relations and development for Im Tirtzu.
There is no excuse for the United Nations not doing a better job of researching where their funding goes. Remind us again…what is the mandate of the UN? Maybe they need a refresher course themselves. Shame on them!!
