Published: May 3, 2010

On April 28th, 19 Knesset members from both the coalition and opposition introduced a bill that would forbid the registration of organizations “if there is a reasonable basis to conclude that the organization is providing information to foreign bodies or is involved in lawsuits abroad against senior officials in the government in Israel and/or officers in the Israeli army regarding war crimes.” Existing organizations found to engage in such activity would be shut down.
