Dutch Support for Anti-Israel Campaigns– Jody Sieradzki (Jerusalem Post)
There are at least 17 NGOs receiving Dutch support that actively partake in blatant anti-Israel BDS campaigns.
The NGO Development Center (NDC) in Ramallah manages funds on behalf of the Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden and Denmark.
NDC grant recipients include Al Haq and the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), which are very active in BDS activities, anti-Israel UN moves, and in attempts to exploit European and international courts, including the ICC, to initiate “war crimes” indictments against Israeli officials.
Such abuse of Dutch taxpayer funds is clearly both immoral and counter-productive.
