      Wilf: Apply NGO Funding Law Equally to Left and Right

      Chairwoman Einat Wilf of the Atzma'ut party's Knesset faction said, Thursday, that the values sought by the new bill on foreign funding of non-government bodies were acceptable and important but must be implemented equally among the left and the right.

      Speaking after the release of a revised draft of the bill, Dr. Wilf said the law should be corrected to ban anyone who supports refusing orders or evading service, undermining the character of Israel as the democratic state of the Jewish people and incitement to racism. She said the faction would work for those changes and that clauses about appeals to the Knesset Finance Committee should be nulled and voided.
