    For organizations officially registered as NGOs in Israel, including all of the organizations identified by the Kenesset, current laws already suffice. Current laws require these organization to declare all grants from official foreign sources to the government and this information can be found by private citizens. These organization also tend to publish their donor list on the their website. What hasn't been touched on by the right is the lack of transparency that exists where large individual donors are concerned. There is no requirement that organizations must declare the names of individuals who give them large donations. This could be because settler groups and groups like Im Turzu depend on these types of donations, many of which come from people like John Hagee and would look bad if they were made public. The reason for resistance to this process is that it is a targeted witch hunt that has nothing to do with transparency.
