The conceit of some to propose legislation against left wing organizations that are in receipt of overseas donations while excluding donations received by the ‘right wing,’ is similarly alarming. I recall Amos Elon writing that four years after World War One had ended Germany had suffered 376 political murders; 22 by leftists (sentenced to a combined total of 248 years in prison) and 354 murders by rightists who between them received a total of 90 years in prison. Terror begins with the variable application of the rule of law.
A national debate on standards is required if Israel is not going to end up as just one more sad Near Eastern dictatorship. Left and Right are equally at fault in this failure of debate.
