Watchdog: Amnesty International Plans ‘Intense’ Effort to Target Israel in Early 2019

Amnesty International is planning to target Israel with several “intense” campaigns early this year, a Jerusalem-based watchdog group said on Thursday, citing what it described as “leaked” documents.

“In this process, Amnesty will delegitimize Jewish historical connections to Jerusalem and elsewhere, as well as promote discriminatory boycotts (BDS) against Israel,” Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor said.

As part of its effort — according to the documents viewed by NGO Monitor — Amnesty will go after businesses that it believes are “profiting from human rights abuses by operating in the illegal Israeli settlements.”
