Lynk specifically lists Palestinian "human rights defenders" who he alleges have faced "interference" with their right to peacefully protest, and "who all engage in non-violent activity." In fact, among those listed are individuals with violent and highly antisemitic records.
Manal Tamimi – Described only as a "leader of a protest movement" and "field researcher" by Lynk, Tamimi is in fact a notorious antisemite and, whose social media accounts are filled with:
- Messages supporting terrorists who have stabbed Israeli civilians
- Calling Israeli settlers "nazi settlers"
- Calls for attacks against "Zio-Nazis"
- Expressions of hope for the death of all "Vampire Zionist[s]"
- "[G]enocidal wishes, denial of Jewish history and identity, Nazi-era imagery, mocking of Jews, co-opting the Holocaust, and outright libels demonizing the Jewish people."
Salah Khawaja – Described only as a "member of the secretariat of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) National Committee in Lynk's report, Khawaja is in fact an "an active member of the blacklisted Popular Front Liberation Party," which is considered a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union.
Lynk's report concludes with recommendations, including calling on Israel to "[a]ctively combat incitement against the work of human rights defenders," but makes no mention of Palestinian incitement to terrorism, including that of the so-called "human rights defenders" listed in his report.
