    There are 3 groups of charities all affected in different ways non of which is undemocratic. ( 1 ) Medical and educational charities they can raise as much as they want abroad and its all tax free which seems fair enough ( 2 ) Political charities, in the new watered down version of the bill they will be permitted to accept donations from foreign governments and NGOS but 45% of that donation will be taken in taxes ( 3 ) The more radical charities which are encouraging things like draft dodging or encouraging armed uprisings against Israel, it will be illegal to receive any money from abroad and considering they are radicals that seems to be the right move. So come on other than the fact the unelected left wing groups gets alot of money from foreign governments & NGOS how does it undermine the democratic process? I hope Haaretz editors have the courage to put up a post that counters their argument using facts.
