    The sentence "The law would apply to both left-wing and right-wing groups, Jewish as well as Arab; associations for the unification of Jerusalem and associations for its division; groups claiming that information they gave to the Goldstone Commission is the absolute truth and groups proving that the information is false and that the goal of the foreign governments and groups funding Breaking the Silence, a group that collects testimony from IDF soldiers and veterans about their service in the territories, is to prevent Israel from defending its citizens." is quite pointless. It is also quite interesting as a South African who is old enough to remember the apartheid regime implementing laws to restrict both NGOs and the press from commenting on anything that they felt to be unpatriotic. Protestations about exposing things to the country's detriment are almost always leveled at the "liberal" press and NGOs and never at the "patriotic" press who seem always to support a government's line no matter what. Governments have been known to get things wrong as well.
