Birthright Israel cuts ties with New Israel Fund

In response to Birthright’s decision, Prof. Gerald Steinberg, the head of NGO Monitor, a watchdog group, told The Jerusalem Post that the NIF “seeks to do more than ‘influence Israeli policy’ – on central issues, their unelected officials seek to impose their opinions on the Israeli democratic process.

“For example, as NGO Monitor research shows, members of the NIF NGO network, including Adalah, Breaking the Silence, B’Tselem, Yesh Din and others use their budgets to bombard the UN, the European Union, journalists, academics and others with false allegations of ‘wars crimes’ and ‘apartheid.’
