not one argument why preventing foreign countries from influencing our internal political process is "undemocratic". In the US any such org would have to register as a foreign agent with various limitations imposed. There is "democratic" right of foreign countries to fund direct lobbying within the Israeli political system. It is a direct interference in the internal affairs of a soverign country. What would Spain say France funded so called NGO's to support the freedom of the Basque region? What would the US say if Mexico funded so called NGO;s supporting massive illegal immigration into the US? It is a ridiculous situation an we should not be intimidated by leftist fear mongering about our "reputation". Also the people on this site are certainly supportive of massive Israeli funding of NGO's in Turkey to support the independence of the Kurds (most oppressed nation on earth) or in Egypt to support the civil and physical liberty of the Coptic Christians (an endangered species).
