According to a lawsuit, Milan was the backseat passenger in a vehicle with three other men in the parking lot of Walmart Neighborhood Market on April 23. The lawsuit said the suspects, believing that someone they were looking for was in the Milan vehicle, rushed toward the car with weapons drawn and began to break the windows. This happened "suddenly and without warning," according to the lawsuit. Fearing they were being attacked by gang members, the driver of the car began to drive away. That's when the lawsuit says the suspects opened fire several times at the vehicle, striking Milan in his back and chest.

Antisemitism www.ngo-monitor.org
In March 2013, published an article written by Nawaf al-Zaru that repeated the antisemitic blood libel that Jews use Christian blood to bake Passover matzah. After significant public criticism, MIFTAH removed the article, but attacked the blogger who exposed the article for "smearing" the organization and downplayed the centrality of the blood libel in the article.
Terrorism
In a January 2017 interview for Deutsche Welle, founder and chair of the Miftah board of directors Hanan Ashrawi claimed that Palestinian "attacks and their perpetrators" (as described by the interviewer, Tim Sebastian) "are seen by the people as resistance. And you cannot somehow adopt the language of either the international community or the occupier by describing anybody who resists as terrorist (sic)" (3:20).
Described Wafa Idrees, one of the first female Palestinian suicide bombers, as "the beginning of a string of Palestinian women dedicated to sacrificing their lives for the cause." Idrees detonated herself on January 27, 2002, killing 81 year-old Pinhas Takatli and wounding another 150 Israeli civilians. She is described as one of the "several young women" who "decided to join the ranks of the resistance movement."

Ashwari is right; attacks on oppressors are seen as resistance by the oppressed.
The blood libel thing was bad, but nothing they haven't made amends for.
Plenty of groups you're okay with have made similar gaffes.
