French NGO Condemned for One-Sided Film on Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
JNS.org – AJC France condemned the humanitarian organization Action Against Hunger (ACF) for distributing a film that solely blames Israel for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The film, “Broken Hopes,” presents the views of three anti-Israel experts who are in various ways connected to the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestiture and Sanctions (BDS) movement or to organizations that oppose Israel’s existence.
The film “presents a unilateral and partial story of Palestinian ‘victimization'” and disregards the Palestinian Authority’s “corruption regarding the management of aid received from the international community,” AJC France Chair René-Pierre Azria wrote to the president of ACF in Paris, Stéphanie Rivoal.
Azria added that the film contradicts ACF’s commitment to “independence, neutrality, non-discrimination, free and direct access to victims, professionalism and transparency.”
