Liberal human rights organizations in Israel are not very good at listening. Indeed, there is a widely-held assumption that the work of human rights organizations is always good and important. In this contribution, I explain how their failure to listen to Palestinians in particular is having negative consequences for the realization of human rights and social justice in the region. I also explain how it would be productive for these liberal organizations to learn from the history of other social justice struggles, such as in South Africa.
