Knesset Sets Up a committee Investigate of Left Wing NGOs

Israeli lawmakers have voted to establish a formal inquiry into the foreign funding of human rights groups and left-wing organizations – Including Peace Now.

We denounce this move as a political witch hunt, and intimidation process to eventually shut down opposing voices to this increasingly extremist right government and its policies.

 Peace Now director general Yariv Oppenheimer described the move as “another step on the path toward wiping out democracy in Israel.”
