President Shimon Peres on Monday called on the Knesset to reject the proposed parliamentary committee to investigate funding of left-wing and human rights organizations.

Peres insisted that such investigations, if necessary, should be left to law enforcement. "The establishment of such a parliamentary investigative committee harms Israeli democracy and is unnecessary," he said.
