Swiss Government Spending Millions on Anti-Israel Lawfare – Ariel Kahana (Israel Hayom)
The Swiss government has been directly funding legal activity targeting Israel over the past year. The Swiss Foreign Ministry transferred at least $2 million through its diplomatic mission in Ramallah to a series of Israeli and Palestinian organizations.
Israel Hayom has seen the contracts, signed by both the Swiss diplomatic mission in Ramallah and six pro-Palestinian organizations, to support activities including “building cases for the International Criminal Court” and “collecting testimonies, field inspections, holding interviews and [providing] legal assistance to victims of war crimes.”
Other Swiss-funded activities include interfering with Israel’s demolition of terrorists’ homes, assistance for imprisoned terrorists, participation in weekly protests demanding their release, and legal representation of terrorists.
