Israeli Regime Falsely Calls Palestinian Human Rights Groups Terrorist Organizations

Like US-dominated NATO, apartheid Israeli falsely accuses others for its own high crimes.

State terrorism, aggression, occupation, and contempt for the rule of law define its hostile agenda.

On Friday, Bennett regime war minister Gantz falsely designed six Palestinian human rights organizations as “terrorist institutions” — what applies to the Jewish state, not them.

Ones named include Addameer, Al-Haq, Defense for Children-International – Palestine, the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees, the Bisan Research and Advocacy Center, as well as the Union Of Agricultural Work Committees.

None support terrorism like the West and Israel.

They support all things human rights as mandated by international law, what hegemon USA-dominated NATO and Israel rejected throughout their odious history.

Like former PM Netanyahu and current one Bennett, Gantz is both unindicted war criminal and serial liar.

Falsely claiming that the above human rights groups are actively “involved in terror activity” mocked and denigrated what their agenda is all about — polar opposite Israel’s war on humanity.

Gantz lied claiming that funds they receive to pursue humanitarian efforts “promot(e) terror activity” — a bald-faced Big Lie.

Saying they “operat(e) under cover in the international arena” on behalf of the (activist) Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine Israel falsely considers a terrorist organization included no evidence of a link between them and the PFLP.

Nor does any evidence exist to show that the above-named human right groups support terrorism or “armed struggle (for the) destruction of Israel.”

Under Israeli law, groups labeled terrorist organizations permit its ruling regimes to close their offices, seize their assets, ban their activities, arrest their members and imprison them — for invented reasons.

In response, Al Haq director Shawan Jabarin called Israel’s action an attempt to silence exposure of its criminal actions, adding:

“They may be able to close us down. They can seize our funding. They can arrest us.” 

“But they cannot stop our firm and unshakeable belief that this occupation must be held accountable for its crimes.”

In response to Gantz’s false about Al-Haq and other Palestinian groups named, Jabarin added:

“I challenge any of them — the (war) minister, Shin Bet, anyone — to prove” the phony accusation.

He also criticized Gantz’s timing. Coming late afternoon Friday, it was ahead of the Jewish Sabbath (Shabbes or Shobos) from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday.

“When Gantz issues such an order on Friday afternoon, it means he doesn’t want the world to see his actions,” Jabarin explained.

In response to Gantz’s action, a joint Human Rights Watch/Amnesty International statement said the following:

“This decision is an alarming escalation that threatens to shut down the work of Palestine’s most prominent civil society organizations.” 

“The decades-long failure of the international community to challenge grave Israeli human rights abuses and impose meaningful consequences for them has emboldened Israeli authorities to act in this brazen manner.”

The HRW and AI have much to answer for about being on the wrong side of hostile US actions against nations threatening no one.

Nonetheless, their criticism of apartheid Israeli actions is welcome and needed.

B’Tselem also condemned the false charge, saying:

“Israel’s ‘change’ government’s designation…of Palestinian human rights organizations as ‘terror organizations’ is not merely declarative.” 

“It is an act characteristic of totalitarian regimes, with the clear purpose of shutting down these organizations,” adding:

The Bennett regime is trying to perpetuate a “violent apartheid regime.”

“B’Tselem stands in solidarity with our Palestinian colleagues, is proud of our joint work over the years – and is steadfast to continue so.”

Defense for Children International – Palestine’s director Khaled Quzmar called the phony designation “another unjust action by Israeli authorities to criminalize and eliminate our lawful human rights and child protection work,” adding:

“When years of delegitimization and disinformation campaigns against us have failed to silence our work, Israeli authorities choose to now escalate repressive tactics by labeling civil society organizations as terrorists.”

“We defend Palestinian children in the Israeli military courts and expose grave violations against Palestinian children at the hands of Israeli forces.” 

“When years of delegitimization and disinformation campaigns against us have failed to silence our work, Israeli authorities choose to now escalate repressive tactics by labeling civil society organizations as terrorists.”

“The international community must use all available means to hold Israeli authorities accountable for targeted attacks and repression of Palestinian civil society organizations.”

Like its predecessors, the Bennett regime wants evidence of Israeli crimes or war, against humanity, and atrocities against Palestinians suppressed, along with its critics silenced.

That’s what falsely designating the above human rights groups as terrorist organizations is all about.

Most often, the Jewish state gets away with the highest of high crimes because of world community indifference toward harm they cause.
