      Knesset to Vote on Bill Targeting Anti-Zionist Groups


      Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon (Yisrael Beiteinu) said Wednesday that the bill to establish Knesset committees to investigate foreign-funded anti-Zionist groups would be brought to a vote on Wednesday, Israel Radio reported.

      "The state must fight to defend itself from an onslaught of incitement and delegitimization," said Ayalon, adding that it is difficult to ignore the feeling that the ruling Likud party refrained from supporting the proposal because of "extraneous circumstances."
