    This bill was designed to preserve democracy not erode it as the leftists who will be affected and the European patrons have claimed. Why should foreign governments and unelected foreign NGOS be allowed to buy their way into Israeli politics the way they do right now? The Americans have the Foreign Agents Act which forbids all foreign funding, at least with this one proposed they would still be able to accept donations of up to 20,000 Shekel. So if its not undemocratic for the US to have a bill like that why is it undemocratic for Israel? There was alot of support for this bill in Bibi's coalition and if he is not careful and starts caving into pressure from the foreign governments whose influence he is trying to stop it may cause fractures in his coalition and if they go deep enough it may just collapse then Bibi's government were brought down by his own weakness and unwillingness to challange foreign interests who want to intefeare with Israel's democratic process. BIBI SHOW A LITTLE COURAGE AND BRING THIS BILL TO A VOTE AND LET THE ELECTED GOVERNMENT DECIDE NOT THE EUROPEANS
