Speaking at a Knesset voting session on a proposed law which will establish committees to investigate left-wing NGOs on Wednesday, Meretz MK Nitzan Horowitz spoke out against the proposed legislation, accusing
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman of being "the main figure to
deligitimize Israel" through his criticism of NGOs such as Yesh Din.
The Knesset session was held over two bills. One, submitted by Israel Beiteinu MK Faina Kirschenbaum, would probe the damage done by the NGOs to the IDF. The second, sponsored by Likud MK Danny Danon, would investigate the contributions the NGOs received from foreign countries.
