Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin and his deputies on Monday rejected for Knesset discussion a bill submitted by MK Ahmed Tibi proposing to revoke state funding for public NGOs and organizations who do not recognize the Nakba.

The Knesset Speaker is authorized to refuse the discussion of a bill in the Knesset if is racist or denies the existence of the Sate of Israel.

Earlier Monday, Israel Beiteinu MK Alex Miller commented on the bill, saying, "This proposal is just another attempt to undermine the right of the State of Israel to exist as a Jewish and democratic state."
