Head of Israel’s Meretz party Zehava Gal-On accused head of “Our Home Israel” Avigdor Lieberman of being a foreign agent. This happened at a meeting of the Knesset Committee on legislation, which discussed the draft law on transparency of NGO funding.
In response to the statement that “activists of these organizations are foreign agents in Israel”, Gal-On said that “a foreign agent will soon head the Ministry of Defense”, NEWSru reported.
A similar incident occurred in February 2016, when Gal-On said that the representatives of “Our Home Israel” are agents of the Azerbaijani government, and receive all kinds of benefits from Baku. According to her, during his tenure as a foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman promoted the interests of the companies owned by the Azerbaijani government.
"You are striving for non-recognition of the Armenian genocide, because you are ‘agents’ of the Azerbaijani government. How can you demand ‘transparency’ from the non-governmental organizations after that?” she asked.
