Lijst van organisaties die Israel boycots steunen en hun financiers

 

Een interessant overzicht van organisaties die de boycot (BDS) campagne tegen Israel ondersteunen en de regeringen die hen geld geven. Hleaas staat Nederland er ook meermaals bij, maar die financiering is in een aantal gevallen gelukkig gestopt. Noorwegen en Zweden zijn verder nogal actief, en een organisatie genaamd NDC (NGO Development Center) die Elder of Ziyon omschrijft als:

 *The NDC mechanism is funded by Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands; 2008-9

 

Maar ook bij financiering van 2010 tot 2012 staat de NDC meermaals met flinke bedragen. Ben benieuwd wat voor 'mechanisme' dit is.

NGO Monitor schrijft over NDC op haar website:

 

  • NDC's budget for 2009 was $14 million. Donors included:
    • Joint funds from Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, $4,745,996 (32.9%)
    • World Bank, $4,040,381 (28%)
    • France, $ 3,948,227 (27.3%)
    • Switzerland, $900,000 (6.2%)
    • Islamic Development Bank, $549,933 (3.8%)
    • Welfare Association, $120,000 (0.83%)
    • European Union: $108,164 (0.75%)
    • Germany, $ 18,720 (0.13%)
  • In July 2008, these four governments established and funded the Human Rights and Good Governance  (HR/GG) Secretariat, managed by NDC, which comprised 1/3 of NDC's total budget in 2009 (annual report, p. 29).
  • Approximately $18 million has been pledged to NDC for 2010-2013 from the four governments: Switzerland, CHF 4.4 million; Sweden, SEK 31.5 million; Netherlands, $4.5; and Denmark, DKK 25 million.
    • NGOs with increased funding for 2010-12:B'Tselem ($680,000), Badil ($575,000), Musawa ($390,000), HaMoked ($680,000),  Adalah($170,000), Gisha ($271,000) and DCI-PS($639,000).
    • Israeli NGOs receiving funding from NDC: B'Tselem, HaMoked, Bimkom ($160,000), ICAHD ($76,000), PCATI ($33,000), Adalah, Gisha, ACRI($50,000), Rabbis for Human Rights ($50,000).
    • A significant number of NGO grantees advance BDS (boycotts, divestment and sanctions) campaigns – including PCHR ($425,000), Al-Haq($134,000), DCI-PS, Al Mezan ($425,000), ARIJ($40,000), Badil, Miftah ($110,000) and the Israeli NGO ICAHD.

 

Dit is dus een Palestijnse NGO die geld krijgt om verder te verdelen en dit aan een hele rits anti-Israel NGO's in de Palestijnse gebieden en Israel doet. Waarom er voor zo'n constructie is gekozen en niet voor het direct financieren, is me onduidelijk. Ik zou zeggen dat hier voor onze regering alvast een gemakkelijke bezuinigingspost ligt, al is het niet veel op de 18 miljard. Het financieren van rabiate anti-Israel NGO's gaat in tegen de doelstelling van onze regering om via onderhandelingen tot een tweestatenoplossing te komen, aangezien de meeste van bovengenoemde organisaties tegen een tweestatenoplossing zijn. Bovendien leidt de financiering van organisaties die boycots promoten en daarmee bijdragen aan polarisatie ook tot maatregelen als de omstreden anti-boycotwet die het Israelische parlement onlangs heeft aangenomen.

I wonder if anyone ever put together a list of which regions/countries receive the most international NGO help? It would be interesting to see if money spent has any relationship to money needed.
