"The EU has criticised a controversial new Israeli law targeting non-governmental organisations that receive most of their funding from abroad. Such groups must now declare they rely on foreign money in communications with officials, in the media and online. Israel's prime minister said the public needed to know when foreign states were 'meddling' in its internal affairs. ... Groups that largely rely on private donations from wealthy individuals, which tend to be the case for right-wing organisations, are exempt." (07/12/16)
