Leftist groups that Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman accused of aiding terror wrote him on Monday asking him to withdraw his parliamentary immunity so they could sue him for libel.

Speaking to reporters outside Sunday's cabinet meeting, Lieberman complained about Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's opposition to forming a parliamentary commission on inquiry to probe leftist non-governmental organizations. He listed several organizations that he accused of terrorism, spying for Israel's enemies, and preventing the IDF from defending the state.

Attorney Michael Sfard, who represents Yesh Din and Breaking the Silence, sent the letter on behalf of both of the organizations as well as Adallah. He wrote that if Lieberman did not agree to revoke his own immunity within 48 hours it would prove that he was afraid of the truth being revealed.
