A new draft bill initiated by the Jewish Home and Likud Beitenu members of the Knesset aims to define non-governmental organizations or Israeli individuals who receive funding from foreign countries as ‘foreign agents’.

Under the bill, contributions from foreign countries to these organizations will be taxed and the NGOs will be required to submit regular reports to Israeli authorities. In addition, they will be required to publicize that they serve as ‘foreign agents’ alongside their logos on official documents.

This is but one of several such draft laws submitted in the past three years by right-wing Israeli parties.
