On June 8-10, 2009, the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People held one of its conferences in Jakarta, Indonesia. This UN-NGO collaboration projects a highly distorted version of the conflict, weakens universal human rights, and erodes the legitimacy of the UN.
Highlights of the report:
- Miftah (EU-funded): “the conflict [is]... about ending an illegal Israeli occupation...suicide bombings [are] a symptom of a much bigger problem.”
- Ir Amim (also European-funded) contributes the Palestinian narrative on Jerusalem
- “Apartheid” and boycott rhetoric from Sonja Karkar of Women for Palestine (Australia)
- The program’s politicized agenda
