The Jerusalem Post reports: Coalition lawmakers called for the UN to stop giving funds to NGOs that give legal aid to terrorists, this week.

The remarks followed a letter by bereaved families to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, reported by The Jerusalem Post, in which the families demanded that the UN stop funding Hamoked: Center for the Defense of the Individual and Arab legal aid organization Adalah.

The families’ letter is based on a study by right-wing organization Im Tirzu, based on Justice Ministry documentation, finding that the UN gave about NIS 11 million to organizations that Im Tirzu considers to be delegitimizing Israel in 2012-2017, including NIS 1,921,640 to Hamoked and Adalah. MK Merav Ben-Ari of Kulanu said that not only do the organizations in question defend terrorists in court, but they “bully bereaved families in the court and cause them additional psychological harm, after they already lost what is most precious to them.”
