Weinstein tells PM he will not be able to defend NGO bills

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Tuesday warned Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that he would not be able to legally defend two bills restricting foreign funding of NGOs.
Weinstein said in a letter to Netanyahu, obtained by Israeli media on Tuesday, that the proposed legislation was unconstitutional.
"The bills severely damage a number of constitutional rights, including freedom of expression, freedom of association and equality."
Weinstein added in the letter that the passage of the laws would put Israel in a category with pariah states that have taken similar action.
