“An Israel NGO has been giving thousands of dollars to Jewish extremists, including one who killed a Palestinian teenager,” Haaretz reported Israel’s Channel 10 as saying yesterday.
Honenu, which bills itself as a legal aid organization, provided funding to Yosef Ben-David, one of the killers of Palestinian teenager Mohammed Abu Khdeir.
Sixteen-year-old Palestinian Abu Khdeir was kidnapped by two unnamed minors and Ben-David in 2015 then burnt alive.

Ben-david was handed a life sentence and 20 years in jail he was also ordered to pay 150,000 Israeli shekels ($39,630) to Abu Khdeir’s family and 20,000 Israeli shekels ($5,284) to the family of another seven-year-old Palestinian child that Ben-David attempted to kidnap in Jerusalem’s Beit Hanina, Middle East Monitor reported.
The organization responded by saying: “The organization works exactly according to the requirements of the law. Hionenu meets all legal requirements. We have been check by tax authorities time and again and never faulted.”
