Is Israel Undemocratic?

On the issue of the investigation of left-wing groups in Israel, complaints are sounded off.

It's undemocratic.  It's fascism.

Is it?

Here's Evelyn Gordon's simple explanation:

...foreign governments fund left-wing NGOs exclusively. They don’t fund groups that, for instance, build Jewish housing in East Jerusalem. Hence, to investigate this issue, the Knesset has to focus on left-wing groups.

Simple, really.

Could it be the left is subversive?
