Friday webinar with the Human Rights activists designated as "terrorists"The Middle East Institute (MEI), Foundation for Middle East Peace (FMEP), Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Democracy for the Arab World Now (DAWN), Century International, and the International Crisis Group (ICG) invite you to a special webinar on Friday, October 29, 2021 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM ET (5:30-7:00 PM Jerusalem time) featuring representatives from the following organizations: Shawan Jabarin, General Director, Al-Haq Law in the Service of Man Sahar Francis, Director, Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association Khaled Quzmar, General Director, Defense for Children-International Ubai al-Aboudi, Executive Director, Bisan Center for Research and Development Fuad Abu Saif, General Director, Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) Tahreer Jaber, Executive Director of the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees (UPWC) Moderated by: Khaled Elgindy (MEI) and Lara Friedman (FMEP). Last Friday’s decision by Israel’s Ministry of Defense to designate six prominent Palestinian human rights organizations as “terrorist organizations” has sent shockwaves across Palestinian civil society and raised alarm bells throughout the international donor community. An Israeli delegation is scheduled to be in Washington on Thursday, October 28, 2021, to brief the Biden administration on the alleged secret evidence behind these designations. As of now, however, the administration has not indicated whether it also intends to hear directly from the six targeted groups, all of which are recipients of international donor funds. Given the grave implications of this decision for the affected organizations as well as for Palestinian civil society more generally, including the possibility of increased repression at the hands of both Israel and the Palestinian Authority, it is critical that American decision-makers and the broader policy community in Washington have an opportunity to hear directly from the organizations themselves. This event is sponsored by Human Rights Watch (HRW), the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), and the Carter Center. Zoom Registration: https://tinyurl.com/xeu9rfrr28/10/2021

‘They targeted us for one reason: We’re succeeding in changing the paradigm’Yuval Abraham - +972 Magazine - When Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz signed an executive order last week declaring six Palestinian human rights groups as “terrorist organizations,” the government did not even bother with putting on a facade of due process. With the swift stroke of a pen, the NGOs — Al-Haq, Addameer, Bisan Center, Defense for Children International-Palestine, the Union for Agricultural Work Committees, and the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees — were instantly outlawed with neither a trial nor the opportunity to respond to the accusations against them. Yet rather than question the dubious nature of this move, the vast majority of Israeli media outlets simply cribbed the Defense Ministry’s official statement on the matter, which accused the six organizations of serving as “arms” of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) — a secular, Marxist-Leninist party and movement deemed a terrorist group by Israel.
