8. Something needed to be done WRT contributions to organizations connected...
...to BDS for example, like Adalah - which calls for full RoR and one state. Foreign gov'ts have no business contributing to such NGO's and AFAIK, Israel is looking into stopping such donations. I don't know of any other country in the world which would allow such a thing.

As for politically oriented NGO's, they'll be taxed 45% on contributions.

Other contributions for genuine charities and education will be unaffected.
