6. Even granting the danger
posed by these organizations - which I think this bills proponents are vastly overstating - the cure is in this case worse than the disease.

Amon other things, I'm struck by the irony. the irony: a major rationale held out for the need for this legislation is that some of the organizations in question gave the Goldstone Commission damning information about IDF activities. So essentially they're trying to prevent a PR problem by making a bigger one.
