Quote:“Nonetheless, the fact that foreign governments, Palestinian foundations, and the European Union have decided to activate agents of change and organizations which act like moles in our midst in an effort to alter the country from within is chutzpah of the first order and certainly an undemocratic step.”

Bayit Yehudi faction head Shuli Moalem-Refaeli responded to the criticism from the Left by saying that the bill is an expression of democracy in Israel.

“The people of Israel are sovereign in their land and not the Swedes or the Finns,” she said.

I knew there would be a justification like this, for all the good and bad, before I even opened the article. Rolleyes
