Thousands join Peace Now 'Rally for Democracy' in Tel Aviv challenging NGO probes
On Saturday, thousands of Israelis marched in Tel Aviv under the banner "Demonstration (since it's still possible) for democracy" - a reference to a proposed measure currently under consideration in the Israeli Knesset that would require investigations of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) which criticize the actions of the Israeli military.
The marchers gathered for a rally in front of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, where Knesset (Parliament) members and human rights leaders addressed the crowd. They challenged what they called a 'culture of racism' that they say has pervaded the Israeli Knesset, under the leadership of Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.
