In light of the central role played by politicized NGOs in public discourse regarding human rights, NGO Monitor published this week a database (available online) that provides opinion shapers and the public with an easily-accessible tool. The resource can inform the debate around legislation or funding mechanisms, such as the guidelines proposed by NGO Monitor to Israeli and European decision makers.I played around a little bit with this online resource. This is what is has to say about "Peace Now"'s contributors for the year 2014(click to enlarge):
"The information in this database is crucial for the advancement of democratic transparency and accountability," Professor Gerald Steinberg said. "Clearly Israelis are attentive to grants given by foreign governments to political NGOs. Accurate data on this issue is important, but in recent weeks rumors and misinformation have dominated the public discourse. This resource provides the facts and figures currently missing from the discussion. The data provided can inform the debate over funding guidelines, and make it more accurate."
The NGO received 1,613,975 NIS from European governments in 2014! The "peace" business is booming!
But seriously, the interference of these governments in Israel's internal affairs is quite disturbing. They are clearly hiding behind an Israeli NGO.

Three Palestinians were stopped outside of a Jerusalem synagogue on Sunday morning carrying large knives.I'm wondering who stopped them and how. Anyway, thank God they were caught. Here's a pic of the synagogue that I took a while back:
The terrorists were approaching the Heichal Yaakov synagogue in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Kiryat Moshe that was full of worshipers who were praying their morning prayers.
The three are suspected of attempting to carry out a large attack on worshipers, they have been brought in for questioning and the investigation is ongoing.
Update: Kikar Shabbat has pics of the suspects and their knives.

The true face of Israel's radical "human rights" activists - the full report (with English subtitles)

Shmuel Rada, the bereaved father of Tair Rada who was murdered in 2006 at the age of 13 at her school in Katzrin on the Golan Heights, passed away on Friday after an extended battle with cancer.Here is a report of the dedication of the synagogue:
Rada passed away just one day after attending the dedication of a synagogue in his daughter's honor in Katzrin. The synagogue was named "Tair Shevet Achim" (Tair dwells amongst her people), a name that her father came up with two years ago.
The bereaved father was allowed to leave Poriya Hospital in Tiberias to take part in the dedication, which he was brought to by Magen David Adom's "wishing ambulance."
"I'm happy that I succeeded in realizing my dream ever since the murder - to establish a 'miniature Holy Temple' in memory of Tair," he said during the visit.
"I made efforts for this moment, it isn't easy. It's a Yemenite synagogue but it is for all of the nation of Israel," emphasized the father, calling on Jews "to come from all ends of the rainbow to pray here in this synagogue for all."
Rada's funeral will take place at 2:30 p.m. in Katzrin's cemetery.

Unfortunately, their story is seldom told. Often when it is told, it is by their enemies, who distort events and do not provide much needed context. It is important to hear the history of Lehi from the perspective of its members in order to understand it.
These people played a major role in bringing about the creation of the State of Israel. Thank you, Freedom Fighters of Israel. I appreciate it.
