JIJ investigates and reports violations of human rights in the Middle East. When abuses like torture, war crimes against children and executions without trial are committed against our vulnerable neighbors, we take action on their behalf to bring change.
We utilize legal and research tools in order to advocate in International Legal forums across the globe. Through research, drafting and presenting complaints, evidence, and testimonies to the International Criminal Court and Governmental bodies, we target perpetrators of human rights violations that have so far enjoyed impunity.
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 dedicate thousands of hours a year to create awareness and policy changes with the goal of positively impacting the lives of millions living in oppression.
With your support, we can hold abusers accountable for their actions and continue to uphold human rights in the Middle East.

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 improve 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.
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.
With your support, we can hold abusers accountable for their actions and continue to uphold human rights in the Middle East while working for the advancement of all peoples.
