Switzerland is reviewing its policies of supporting organizations that work against Israel.
A Swiss lawmaker has introduced a bill—with the support of 41 Members of Parliament—that would stop all state funding to groups that support boycotts of Israel or “racist and anti-Semitic actions,” the Jerusalem Post reported, citing the Swiss-German daily newspaper Basler Zeitung.
The bill, initiated by MP Christian Imark, calls on the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) to stop direct and indirect funding to anti-Israel NGOs.
The Bundesrat, the executive council of Switzerland’s government, will assess and respond to the proposed legislation on NGO funding.
According to data published by Israel’s Foreign Ministry, European governments funnel a staggering sum of 100-200 million euros annually to anti-Israel organizations operating under the guise of human rights advocacy.
Governments in the US, UK, France, Canada and elsewhere are introducing legislation and taking other measures to undermine anti-Israel activities in their countries.
