Israel muzzling left-wing NGOs with 'transparency bill,' Meretz chief says

December 27, 2015 16:15

The Israeli government’s approval of legislation that would require nongovernment organizations that receive foreign funding to identify themselves as such is aimed at muzzling the political left, Meretz chairwoman Zehava Galon said on Sunday.

Galon reacted to the announcement by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation that it had okayed the so-called “transparency bill,” which was initiated by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked of the religious Zionist Bayit Yehudi party.
