At Eye on the UN, there's a special feature today called THE UN-NGO CONNECTION: SPREADING THE MESSAGE OF HATE AND TERRORISM

Two of the NGO's looked at are Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition and BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights:
The message of UN-accredited NGO Al-Awda: on its home page is a key that must be liberated to unlock the door to Israel - all of Israel - which is portrayed as belonging to Palestinians. This is coupled with a call to violence "by any means," "everywhere." The stylized map is the same imagery as the infamous UN map, displayed at the UN on November 29, 2005, that deleted Israel. It also mirrors the maps used by Palestinian terrorist organizations. Al-Awda is accredited by the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, listed on the UN NGO database on the Question of Palestine, and the UN website links to Al-Awda's home page. The accompanying UN disclaimer of responsibility for the content of all links neglects to mention that NGOs entitled to such connections are selected by UN staff. The UN advises would-be NGO applicants: "Your submission will be reviewed by our team of editors shortly."


The message of UN-accredited NGO BADIL: Jews would rather serve grenades than cookies or make a pastime of blowing up innocent holiday-makers, and all of Israel (denoted by the same map imagery as Al-Awda or Hamas) belongs to the Palestinians. These pictures appeared on the BADIL site in 2005 – they vanished after BADIL was questioned about them during the 2006 UN accreditation process. The BADIL representative denied their existence, but the language pointing to the now dysfunctional links still exist. The BADIL message remains the same.
