Palestinian NGOs under pressure to boycott US-funded projects after Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The tenor of the current debate in Palestinian society is discernible at all levels. Ibrahim Ghrouf, who works with a Palestinian NGO in Jericho, one of whose US-funded projects provides clean bottled water, said: “The Trump decision has really harmed the work of NGOs. We distribute clean bottled water that has the US flag on it. There’s never been any problem with that with the public. But after Trump’s decision there has been a lot of sensitivity.
