  Shalom,

We are pleased to forward December's newsletter for the Institute for Zionist Strategies. Included in the newsletter is information regarding a new study conducted by the IZS concerning foreign support for Israeli NGOs.  This report was co-authored with NGO Monitor.  Also presented, is a report by the IZS submitted at his request to the Director- General of the Prime Minister's Office.  Finally, we provide an update on the IZS Civics Studies project, which was deliberated at length in the Knesset last week.

Foreign Support for Israeli NGO's

 

 Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) wield very significant political and legal power in Israel, particularly through their use of the language and framework of human rights and their professed purpose of ensuring humanitarian assistance to the Palestinians. These NGOs are also a major and often hidden channel for external influence by foreign governments over Israel's foreign and domestic policies, including matters directly effecting security.

 

Much of the funding for political lobbyist supposedly designed to strengthen Israeli “civil society” comes from foreign sources – particularly European governments, including prominently, the European Union . By using the Israel-based NGO network to pursue its own foreign policy objectives from within the Israeli political process, these foreign governments are violating Israel's sovreignty and undermining the decisions of the democratically elected government.

National Preference

 

The IZS recently submitted a position paper of principles regarding the implementation of National Preference policy pursuant to request of the Prime Minister's office.  The document reconfirms the importance of the law and is essential for national objectives.  The principles listed by the IZS include:  emphasizing the importance of clear and unchanging standards, special treatment for areas based on certain defined conditions such as social gaps, geographic location, security needs, the burden of absorbing new olim and rates of induction to national service.

Activity Review

 

Education Committee

 

The most recent session of the Knesset Education Committee was devoted to a report by Dr. Yitzhak Geiger commissioned by the IZS to review Civics Studies in our state operated schools.  Contributing to the deliberations, in addition to Dr. Geiger, were Prof. Ruth Gavison, Prof. Eliezer Don-Yihya, Prof. Avraham Diskin, Prof. Asher Cohen, Prof. Yedidya Stern, Director-General of the Education Committee, Dr. Shimshon Shoshani, and teachers and students.  The Committee hearings received considerable media coverage.  It was decided at the conclusion that the Minister of Education will appear before the Committee within three months to present the Committee and Knesset with proposals to rectify the situation exposed by the IZS study.
