Academic and columnist career
Unsatisfied with the materials the European Union provided to him about their support for Israeli NGOs, Steinberg initiated legal action. His case was dismissed by the court as being "manifestly unfounded." 
Civil society activities
Steinberg has been a longtime critic of the organization Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Christian Aid, Oxfam and various other groups who he accuses of having "contributed to the hatred, rather than supporting peace." Writing in a 2004 Jerusalem Post article  he said, "HRW's press statement exposes it as a biased political organization hiding behind the rhetoric of human rights." Later he goes on to accuse HRW of "exploiting the rhetoric of human rights to delegitimize Israel." 
Human Rights Watch accused Steinberg of "sleight of hand" in his reporting of its activities, and of conveniently ignoring its condemnations of Palestinian militant actions and of not mentioning inconvenient facts.
Yehudit Karp, a former Israeli Deputy Attorney General, charged that Steinberg published material he knew to be wrong "along with some manipulative interpretation."
