NGO Monitor: UK Major Funder of Anti-Israel 'Lawfare' Project

The new report reveals that the UK generously funds, along with the EU and other governments, the "Lawfare Project" of the international aid organization "The Norwegian Refugee Council" (NRC), whose objective is to sabotage the Israeli legal system.
