Israel claims six Palestinian rights groups are “terrorist organizations” – CIA says “bullshit!”

The CIA could not find any evidence to support Israel’s claim that six prominent Palestinian rights groups were “terrorist organizations,” intelligence sources told The Guardian…

Last October, the Israeli government labeled the following groups as terror-related: Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, Al-Haq, the Bisan Center for Research and Development, Defense for Children International — Palestine, the Union of Agricultural Work Committees, and the Union of Palestinian Women Committees…

The lack of support from foreign governments on its designation has not prevented Israel from continuing to target the six groups.

…Nine EU countries issued a joint statement last month on the designation, saying: “No substantial information was received from Israel that would justify reviewing our policy toward the six Palestinian NGOs.”

Also last month, 22 Democrats in the US Congress sent a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Avril Haines, director of national intelligence, urging Washington to stand up to Israel over the report.

Nothing new about criminally corrupt governments or, for that matter, demented rightwingers of any flavor, any country, calling those who oppose them “terrorists”. What’s rare is the CIA standing up and publicly shaming them for their lies.
