Likud MK Danny Danon, who initiated a bill limiting nongovernmental organizations’ ability to petition the High Court, said Sunday that he was confident that even though it was rejected by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu would agree to in the future.

"I understand the reasons why the prime minister decided to reject the bill at this time," Dannon said. "I am still sure that he will [eventually] agree to it because we have to find a way to stop the disrespect and the improper conduct that is being carried out at the High Court by political officials, of which a large majority show hostility to toward Israel and use the Israeli democracy as a way of harming the state," he added.
