The influence of the Israel lobby in the US is well-known. Most presidential hopefuls have competed with each other in recent weeks to see who can carry the most favour with this lobby.
By contrast, there has been little scrutiny of the pro-Israel network in Brussels, despite its considerable growth over the past decade.
A new report, The Israel Lobby and the European Union, challenges the secrecy surrounding this network. It identifies where pro-Israel groups receive their funding and how some of their donors have facilitated Israel’s illegal colonisation of the West Bank. It examines how the lobby has persuaded law-makers to refrain from sanctioning Israel over its human rights abuses. And it analyses how Israel’s supporters have been trying to undermine grassroots campaigning for justice in Palestine.
You are cordially invited to attend the launch of this timely and detailed report.
The report is published by Spinwatch (www.spinwatch.org), in cooperation with EuroPal Forum (www.europalforum.org.uk). Its authors, David Cronin, Sarah Marusek and David Miller, will speak during the launch.
