Israeli parliament debates controversial NGO funding law

Israel's parliament began debating a controversial bill that would compel NGOs that receive most of their funding from foreign governments to declare this in all of their official reportsIsrael’s parliament began debating late Monday a controversial bill that would compel NGOs that receive most of their funding from foreign governments to declare this in all of their official reports. The text does not specifically refer to leftist organisations, but they are the groups it would impact as right-wing NGOs supporting Israel’s occupation of the West Bank tend instead to rely on private donations, particularly from the United States. Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, who proposed the law, argues it will boost transparency as the government seeks to fight foreign interference and attempts to delegitimise the state of Israel.
