Israel's Knesset voted to form a parliamentary committee to investigate left-wing Israeli organizations that criticize the Israeli military's actions. The initiative, proposed by the Yisrael Beiteinu Party, passed Wednesday by a vote of 47 to 16. The committee will be charged with determining if the groups are funded by foreign countries or by other groups with links to terrorism. Israeli human rights groups have criticized the initiative.
