Report: Secret EU funding of violent, pro-terror BDS groups exposed

The anti-Israel “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” movement presents itself as a grassroots cause, but is that really the case?

A new report by the watchdog group NGO Monitor suggests otherwise.

Rather, many BDS activist groups are getting secret funding from the powerful European Union, in direct contravention with the EU’s supposed philosophy of “supporting peace and democratic development.”

To cite just one example from the report, one group called the Coalition of Women for Peace (CWP) received $470,000 in taxpayer funds from a branch of the EU.

NGO Monitor notes that CWP has partnered with groups whose “protests have often turned violent,” and its activists have been seen participating in pro-Palestine demonstrations, carrying the flags of a terrorist group.

NGO Monitor concludes:

The facts clearly demonstrate that either the [EU] officials involved were unaware of the groups chosen to receive taxpayer funds, or that they chose to promote NGOs that fuel the conflict and promote confrontation, under the fa├žade of ‘non-violence.”
