This is interesting: Teddy Katz, an Israeli affiliated with the leftist Meretz party, claimed in his Masters thesis that a Jewish militia (called the "Alexandroni Brigade") committed a massacre during the 1948 war of independence.

When veterans of the brigade sued Katz for libel, the PLO supplied him with money for his legal defense (report). Katz seems to have backed down from his accusations.
