The security cabinet can declare an individual a terrorist following recommendations from the UN or a foreign government, according to a bill that passed its second and third (final) votes in the Knesset Monday evening.

The government-sponsored amendment to the law prohibiting funding terrorists passed with 25 MKs in favor and four opposed.

The new law allows the cabinet to declare a person or organization terrorist should the UN Security Council or a relevant office of a foreign government recommend they do so.

When the UN Security Council declares a person a terrorist, UN member countries are required to follow suit, but before Monday, Israeli law made doing so complicated.
