Denmark Reexamining Donations to Palestinian NGOs – Barak Ravid
The Danish Foreign Ministry has begun a comprehensive examination of its donations to non-governmental organizations in the Palestinian Authority, according to a statement from Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen. On May 17, Samuelsen met in Jerusalem with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who asked Samuelsen to cut Danish funding for Palestinian NGOs involved in inciting against Israel and promoting boycott, divestment and sanction measures against it.
“It is possible that in the wake of the examination we will be forced to stop our support of a number of Palestinian organizations. Until this examination is complete we won’t sign any new grants for Palestinian organizations,” Samuelsen said. (Ha’aretz)
