At the same time, it provides agenda-free services to reporters, including translation services and access to news makers to enable them to provide a fuller picture of the situation.”

(2) Palestinian Media Watch (PMW): “Founded in 1996, Palestinian Media Watch is an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society from a broad range of perspectives by monitoring and analyzing the Palestinian Authority through its media and schoolbooks. PMW’s major focus is on the messages that the Palestinian leaders, from the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas, send to the population through the broad range of institutions and infrastructures they control.”

(2) NGO Monitor: “NGO Monitor was founded in 2002, with the objectives of producing and distributing critical analysis and reports on the activities of the international and local NGO networks, for the benefit of government policy makers, journalists, philanthropic organizations and the general public. We document and publicize distortions of human rights and international law in the context of the Arab-Israeli conflict, as well as double standards and biased campaigns, and provide information and context on these issues and activities, in order to encourage informed public debate.”

“Watchdog Launches Interactive Database for ‘Easy Access’ to Info on Quarter Billion Shekels Given to Israeli NGOs by Foreign Governments Seeking to Undermine Jewish State Policy”

//An Israel-based watchdog [NGO Monitor] has launched an interactive database for what it calls “easy access and analysis” of the more than $60 million (NIS 235 million) in foreign government funding that went to Israeli non-profits actively working to undermine the Jewish state in its conflict with the Palestinians from 2012 to 2016 …

NGO Monitor President Prof. Gerald Steinberg said, “The unique and disproportionate funding that a small group of Israeli NGOs get from European governments is used to influence Israeli politics and society. Over the past four years alone, 34 Israeli NGOs have received nearly a quarter of a billion shekels. Our new database brings this essential information directly to journalists, the public and decision-makers, increasing transparency in a clear, comprehensive and user-friendly way.”//
