Speaking at a Knesset voting session on a proposed law which will establish committees to investigate left-wing NGOs on Wednesday, Israel Beiteinu MK Faina Kirschenbaum,  who first submitted the proposal for the probe, said  "this is a fight for the image of the country.

The Knesset session was held over two bills. One, submitted by 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.
