Israeli ministers Sunday endorsed contentious draft legislation to toughen rules on rights groups receiving funds from abroad, the justice minister said, in a move left-wing NGOs have called a witch-hunt.Critics say the legislation is discriminatory because it is mainly groups that oppose the right-wing government's policies toward Palestinians which receive money from foreign governments and the EU.Private funds from overseas, such as money donated to Israeli groups that support Jewish settlement on occupied land Palestinians seek for a state, are not addressed in the bill, which is widely expected to win parliamentary approval.There are over 30,000 NGOs registered in Israel, about half of them active.
