Human rights NGO Yesh Din responded harshly to Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's comments accusing left-wing and human rights NGOs of aiding terrorism on Sunday

"If the foreign minister doesn't file a police complaint and pass on the information in his possession within 24 hours, everyone will know that he is a liar and his sole purpose is to incite against the [NGOs]," Yesh Din chief legal advisor Michael Sfard said on Sunday.

Lieberman's operating methods, Sfard added, "are reminiscent of the methods applied by dark regimes in order to deal with those deemed as government critics."
