According to the NGO Monitor (https://www.ngo-monitor.org/ , a project of The Institute for NGO Research, a recognized organization in Special Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council), the designated groups are:

Al-Haq is a leader in anti-Israel “lawfare” and BDS campaigns. Al-Haq’s General Director Shawan Jabarin has been linked to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a designated terrorist organization by the US, EU, Canada, and Israel.

The Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees (UPWC) is identified by Fatah as an official “affiliate” and by USAID as the “women’s organization” of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a designated terrorist organization by the US, EU, Canada, and Israel.

The Union of Agricultural Work Committee (UAWC) is identified by Fatah as an official “affiliate” and by USAID-engaged audit as the “agricultural arm” of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organization designated as such by the US, EU, Canada, and Israel.

DCI-P is the national section of the Geneva-based Defense for Children International, an NGO established in 1979, with consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council, UNICEF, UNESCO, and the Council of Europe. Numerous individuals with alleged ties to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organization designated as such by the US, EU, Canada, and Israel, have been employed and appointed as board members at DCI-P. For more information on DCI-P’s PFLP ties, read NGO Monitor’s report “Defense for Children International – Palestine’s Ties to the PFLP Terror Group.”

Addameer is a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) “affiliate.” The PFLP is a terrorist organization designated as such by the US, EU, Canada, and Israel. For more information on Addameer’s PFLP ties, read NGO Monitor’s report “Addameer’s Ties to the PFLP Terrorist Group.”

Gee, just like the Chinese, Russians and the Turks do. Dare to challenge the ruling party and you are labeled a "terrorist".

Remember the use of force expert who couldn't see that Chauvin used excessive force when he murdered Floyd in cold blood?

Supporters of the Israeli regime make him look reasonable. No matter how outrageous the act of the last surviving Apartheid regime, they somehow manage to see it as not just not excessive, but highly restrained.

Israel is as much of a terror organization as Hamas. BDS Israel.

Israel on Friday effectively outlawed six prominent Palestinian human rights groups by declaring them terrorist organizations, a major escalation of its decades-long crackdown on political activism in the occupied territories.

....and that is completely justified. The "human rights" excuse is just a cover for supporting islamist terrorism against the Jewish state.

You just have no actual evidence to support this conclusion. You are one of the posters that loves making naked assertions and ignoring others when we ask for evidence. You also love asking others for evidence to support their assertions.

When your regime is built on a foundation of a human rights violation so egregious it is deemed a crime against humanity, human rights organizations are terrifying to you.
