2013 Annual Report

HR2013AnnualRprtSiteSplashFrom outward appearances, 2013 has been a relatively quiet one for Israel. Unlike in previous years, we have not seen incidents of the scale of the Mavi Marmara or major operations to combat rockets from Gaza that have produced crises for Israel’s public diplomacy.

Nonetheless, HonestReporting has tackled head-on disturbing trends and challenges as anti-Semitism and demonization of Israel seep into the mainstream media.

Another major issue facing Israel and Jewish communities worldwide is the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement while the mounting uncertainties of Palestinian intentions, Iran’s nuclear program, and Arab Spring unrest have all remained on HonestReporting’s radar.

Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator, this year gave HonestReporting its coveted four-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency, thus further recognizing the professionalism of the organization.
