Benjamin Netanyahu has said there is a need to tighten Israel’s laws to prevent foreign governments from funding Israeli human rights organisations.
The Prime Minister said the current law requiring some non-profit groups to disclose the funding they receive from foreign governments was not strong enough, Haaretz reported.
Mr Netanyahu said he had managed to stop funding from the Norwegian government, an apparent reference to Norway’s decision to withdraw funds from a Palestinian women’s organisation named after Dalal Mughrabi, who was part of the 1978 Coastal Road massacre that killed 38 civilians, including 13 children.
He said the move was part of “Israel’s decisive foreign policy.”
