NGO Monitor is calling Human Rights Watch to the mat for HRW’s latest report focusing on Israeli sins – this time, against its Bedouin population. In its analysis, NGO Monitor, a Jerusalem-based watchdog group run by Prof. Gerald Steinberg of Bar-Ilan University, says HRW’s report, “Off the Map: Land and Housing Rights Violations in Israel’s Unrecognized Bedouin Villages” offers a “one-sided view of Israeli property and planning law and of the highly complex Bedouin situation.”
