Silent Penetration: The other Face of International Non-Governmental Organizations in Conflict Areas: Palestine as a Model

Auther : Salah H. Alzaroo

International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs) claim to work in conflict or post conflict areas for humanitarian purposes such as relief, empowerment and development. Their visions, goals and activities show them in a magnificent light. This study, however, by using Palestine as a model, argues that many of these organizations have a hidden agenda that coincides with the policies of their donor countries more than they are in line with the needs of the host societies.
The study shows the different sides of this hidden agenda such as garnering information, alienating Palestinian society, attracting the elite and dominant groups in the society, normalizing occupation, contributing to the protection of the state of Israel, and provoking sectarianism in the Palestinian society. The study concludes that INGOs, whether in Palestine or abroad, are one of the primary tools used in any cultural and political conflict and that these organizations, with their hidden agenda, silently penetrate the internal structure of the society and lead to a violation of its national sovereignty and threaten its social cohesion.
Keywords: International Non-Governmental Organization, Conflict Areas, Palestine.
