Knesset member seeks to label foreign-funded anti-Israel NGOs

 

Likud MK Yoav Kisch introduces a bill that seeks to restrict nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) funded by foreign gov’ts that “represent foreign political interests,” as their covertly given funds undermine Jerusalem and promote anti-Israel propaganda.

Likud MK Yoav Kisch on Sunday introduced a legislation proposal seeking to label nongovernmental organizations operating in Israel while receiving the majority of their funding from foreign governments as “plants” or “agents” of the governments funding them.

The bill seeks to impose stricter record keeping and reporting guideline on such NGOs, and bar them from fostering collaborations with government ministries and the military, unless specifically authorized by the Justice Ministry.

The bill’s abstract further says the legislation seeks to allow both the “proper authorities and the public with tools to counter the erosion of democracy and the promotion of and internal delegitimization of the State of Israel, funded by foreign political entities.”
