During a Monday afternoon Israel Beiteinu faction meeting Foreign Minister Avigdor Leiberman attacked left wing NGOs and defended his party's recent initiative to establish a parliamentary committee of inquiry to probe their funding sources.

Leiberman read off a long list of data concerning funding for a number of organizations, citing the new profile organization "Adallah," the public committee against torture in Israel, for for submitting incomplete funding reports to government oversight agencies.

The foreign minister also slammed Human Rights Watch, which he accused of fund raising in Saudi Arabia by promising to attack Israel while not examining the state of human rights in Arab countries.
