A bill proposed by Ze’ev Elkin and Tzion Pinyan (Likud) will be debated on Sunday. The bill would allow people to receive a 35% tax dispensation on donations to NGO’s that encourage settlement activity. Elkin has said that he first wanted to make the bill more explicit by using the words ‘zionist settlement’, but that he has removed that from the final amendment. Meanwhile, Yariv Oppenheimer, director of left-wing NGO ‘peace now’ called the bill “outrageous”.
