Rabbis Meet French Amb. To Stop NGO Funding


A delegation of rabbis from a group called Rabbinical Congress of Peace met this week with French ambassador to Israel Christophe Bigot. They asked the ambassador to influence the French government to halt funding of various Israeli NGOS that the group feels are anti-Israel. Rabbi Joseph Gerlitzky,  Chairman of the RCP presented a petition signed by 350 rabbis calling for a halt to abandoning Israeli land to foreign entities,
 
They said that several Israeli NGOs with the help of European funding, go overboard in pressuring the Israeli government to compromise with the Palestinian Authority.
