We Will Not be Silenced!Peace Now press release - While left-wing NGOs receiving funding from donor countries already report about their donations quarterly, right-wing NGOs` donations from abroad are much larger and are highly nontransparent. Last week we published a report indicating that 94% of the funding of right-wing NGOs is nontransparent. Right-wing NGOs also receive public funding from the government, which means that we, Israeli citizens, help support their activities. [bz]29/12/2015

Jewish terrorism: The missing linkAlex Fishman - Ynet News - When dealing with Palestinian terrorism, the Shin Bet doesn`t need special approval to put unusual protocols into practice. When Jewish terrorism is investigated, things are different. The courts treat most Jewish terror acts as regular crimes. Burning churches or trees, for example, is seen as property crime, not a nationalistic hate crime. Throwing stones at a Palestinian car, if it`s investigated at all, will be considered on the same scale as a violent protest. It goes without saying that the investigation of Israeli suspects is completely different from that of Palestinians suspected of the same hate crimes, which in their case will be considered terrorist acts.-rh 9/12/2015
