Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday said that he opposes the terminology used by the Im Tirzu organization after they published a poster that labeled a number of Israeli artists as "foreign agents" for their affiliation with left-wing groups.

"I oppose the use of terms that suggest that it is a betrayal" if anyone "disagrees with me," Netanyahu said.

"We are a democracy and there is a multitude of different opinions," adding "at the same time most of the public strongly opposes [organizations like] Breaking the Silence who spread malicious slander from abroad."
