The NGOs that Stole Christmas

(NGO Monitor) During the 2011 Christmas season, NGOs such as Sabeel, War on Want (UK), Amos Trust, and Adalah-NY once again are exploiting the holiday to advance immoral anti-Israel campaigns and, in some cases, crude anti-Semitism. As in previous years, these "charities" use offensive, inflammatory rhetoric in Christmas carols; holiday message; and cards, nativity scenes, and other products. For instance, Kairos Palestine, Adalah-NY, and Code Pink repeat the incendiary accusation of "ethnic cleansing" in their campaigns. "Manipulating religious symbols and images in this manner is deeply offensive, and clearly does not foster an environment of coexistence among Israelis and Palestinians. These NGOs are pursuing hate-filled agendas," says Prof. Gerald Steinberg, president of NGO Monitor.
