On October 22, 2021, the Israeli Ministry of Defense declared Al-Haq a “terror organization” because it is part of “a network of organizations” that operates “on behalf of the ‘Popular Front’.”
Jabarin was convicted in 1985 for recruiting and arranging training for members for the PFLP. A 1994 Israeli statement to the UN notes that he “had not discontinued his terrorist involvement and maintains his position in the leadership of the PFLP.”
According to multiple Arabic-language media sources, Al-Haq General Director Shawan Jabarin represented the PFLP at a December 2011 meeting of the Follow-Up Committee for Issues of Public Liberties and Trust Building. This body served as a reconciliatory body between Hamas, Fatah, PIJ, the PFLP, and other Palestinian factions.
On January 28, 2023, a day after the murder of seven Israelis by a Palestinian gunman outside of a Jerusalem synagogue, Abdeen wrote, “What happened in occupied Jerusalem is that a Jerusalemite young man from the sons of the capital, carried out, alone, a resistance action on Palestinian land (occupied Jerusalem), the land of his fathers and forefather, and this action is legitimate according to international humanitarian law and human rights law…What happened in occupied Jerusalem and other cities and villages…is called legitimate resistance under international law. it is a legitimate and effective means to end the colonial occupation and expel the invading occupiers…”
Naturally, Al-Haq is funded by George Soros with a 3-year grant totaling $800,000 beginning in 2020 to work on human rights.
By human rights, Soros and Al-Haq mean the murder of Jews. Here’s Al-Haq’s latest fight for human rights. The rights of the Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other Islamic terrorists involved.
As Palestinian Media Watch notes, “Apparently, the Al-Haq Institute for Human Rights thinks that Palestinian terrorist murderers have rights and can massacre with impunity, and that when Israelis/Jews are attacked, raped, molested, tortured, and threatened, they should only object politely without trying to kill their attackers and save their own lives.
This is the insane belief revealed in an interview with Director of the Al-Haq Institute for Human Rights Sha’awan Jabarin, who expressed concern over Israel’s treatment of the invading Hamas terrorist murderers:
“A topic [that] still isn’t clear… is the matter of those who entered [Israel] on [Oct.] 7 from the Gaza Strip – civilians, fighters (i.e., Hamas terrorist murderers), and others – and how [the Israelis] behaved towards them. The summary executions, whether [the Oct. 7 attack] served just as an excuse for summary executions. What happened on [Oct.] 7 will be become clear in terms of the occupation’s (i.e., Israel’s) behavior. Something appalling happened to hundreds of those (i.e., terrorist murderers) who entered [Israel].”
This isn’t too surprising because this is how Al-Haq which, I repeat, is a group funded by Soros and other American nonprofits, responded to the Oct 7 atrocities.
“On Saturday, 7 October 2023, Palestinian armed groups engaged in an operation in response to escalating Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, including; the ongoing closure of the Gaza Strip, daily military raids in the West Bank, attacks against Palestinian communities in the West Bank, killings*, mass arbitrary arrests, inhumane treatment of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli detention, appropriation of natural resources, home demolitions, and the settlers storming of Al-Aqsa compound.”
The ongoing funding of terror groups and their cutouts, proxies and allies by Soros and other donors is a terror funding loophole that must end.
