Likud MK Danny Danon and Peace Now Director-General Yariv Oppenheimer debated two controversial bills that would limit foreign funding of NGOs in the Knesset on Tuesday.

Oppenheimer said that the bills were meant to delegitimize NGOs and claim they are supporting foreign governments and not the Israeli government.
