The universality of human rights is a standard that requires constant vigilance and protection. Not just in the Middle East, but also in the global arena. JIJ’s research and advocacy team dedicates thousands of hours a year to create awareness and policy changes with the goal of positively impacting the lives of millions living in oppression.
We cannot ignore the events taking place in our region. JIJ began researching the state of human rights in the Palestinian Authority and Gaza. It became clear to us that the massive foreign aid given to help the lives of Palestinians is not reaching those who most need it. Their corrupt government leaders are getting rich while violating every basic human right and freedom.
Our dedicated team of researchers and interns has spent thousands of hours interviewing and fact finding about human rights abuses related to the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Palestinian Refugees and Islamic terrorism. What we’ve learned has enabled us to bring a factual approach to the discussion about human rights in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
We strongly believe that to be Pro-Israeli, you don’t have to be Anti-Palestinian and to be Pro-Palestinian; you don’t have to be Anti-Israeli. We must work for the advancement of all peoples as we are all created in the image of our Maker.
