The Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday approved two bills that would limit foreign funding for Israeli human rights organizations. The bill, sponsored by Likud MKs Tzipi Hotovely and Ofir Akunis, would cap foreign governments' contributions to "political" non-governmental organizations at NIS 20,000.
