Left-wing NGOs worked with an activist who admitted on hidden camera that that he reports Palestinians who sell land to Jews to the Palestinian Authority so they will be tortured and killed – an activist also has a criminal history of child sex abuse – and this shows that these left-wing NGOs must be subject to higher legal scrutiny, Israel’s Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said in the Knesset today.

Left-Wing NGOs Employed A Child Molester Who Allegedly Turned Over Palestinians Who Sold Land To Jews To PA For Torture And Murder

Left-wing NGOs worked with an activist who admitted on hidden camera that that he reports Palestinians who sell land to Jews to the Palestinian Authority so they will be tortured and killed – an activist also has a criminal history of child sex abuse – and this shows that these left-wing NGOs must be subject to higher legal scrutiny, Israel’s Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said in the Knesset today, the Jerusalem Post reported.
Shaked highlighted Ezra Nawi’s criminal past.
"You call returning parts of its historic homeland to the Jewish People 'colonialism,' meaning to criticize Israel, but in the same breath, you don't mind saying that a pedophile convicted of sodomizing a 15-year-old minor 'rules,’” Shaked said.
Nawi works for the far-left NGO Ta'ayush. He was secretly filmed by a right-wing activist bragging about reporting Palestinians who sell land to Jews to the PA which tortures and kills them. The video clip was reportedly broadcast on Channel 2's Uvda program last week.
Left-wing NGOs B’Tselem, Breaking the Silence, and Rabbis for Human Rights have all reportedly paid Nawi for work, including organizing Palestinian demonstrations.
"You accuse IDF soldiers of blindfolding terrorist suspects, while you close your eyes and back someone suspected of helping kill an innocent person. After so many declarations that are detached from reality about actions that 'remind you of dark periods in history,' you can't see the darkness that took you over…the moral plague of darkness that befell you,” Shaked said.
Calling the left-wing NGO’s names Orwellian, she said that B’Tselem, which is taken from the Biblical phrase menaing all humans are created in God’s image, "cannot even manage to criticize its activist who is suspected of harming an innocent man created in the image of God. Why?…Can't a person who sold land to Jews also be defined as a person? Are you so hateful? Did politics make you lose your minds to that extent?" Shaked asked. Rabbis for Human Rights, Shaked continued, forgot that "do not murder" is one of the 10 Commandments. "Did you forgot that aspect of Jewish law? You cannot call yourselves an organization of rabbis or people who care about human rights."
Rabbis for Human Rights reportedly said in a statement that it suspended its relationship with Nawi because of the Channel 2 Uvda report.
But earlier this week Rabbi Arik Asherman, who heads Rabbis for Human Rights, went to Nawi's trial to support him.
Nawi was arrested Monday while trying to flee Israel.
Shaked is using the allegations against Nawi to support her NGO transparency bill that would force any NGO that receives most of its funding from foreign governments to wear special badges while in the Knesset testifying or speaking with lawmakers. But pointedly, Shaked’s bill does not have the same requirement for NGOs that receive most of their funds from foreign individuals or foreign nonprofits – the sources of funding for many right-wing Israeli NGOs.
The US and various EU governments have lashed out at the bill, which is widely considered to be extremely biased and anti-democratic.
Shaked, however, who has no legal training and seems poorly versed on issues relating to free speech and democracy, has brushed off those criticisms and maintains her bill will bring needed transparency. But she refuses to address the disparity in foreign funding and said in Knesset today that she has “no doubt” her “transparency bill, will successfully create a healthier discourse in Israeli society."
