Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein urged the European Union to be more cautious in funding Israeli NGOs, during a meeting with European Parliament President Martin Schulz in Berlin Thursday.

"The EU has to be very careful," he said. "It's very good to support human rights. It's very good and positive to support dialogue...I participated in dialogue with Palestinians and Palestinian legislators."

However, Edelstein added, "supporting people who are sending Palestinians to death, because of their ideology, is not something that is doing any honor to any organization."

The Knesset speaker was referring to the case of Ezra Nawi, a far-left activist who was arrested after being shown on an investigative journalism TV program last week boasting about how he helps Palestinian security forces find Palestinians who sell land to Jews.
