Sokatch Socks 'Em

I found this here, in a story of NIF director being questioned about NIF's funding targets:

Daniel Sokatch, CEO of the New Israel Fund. "She is precisely the kind of person Israel should be proud to host as a guest. This shows that the ultra right-wing government is shamelessly using a political litmus test to decide who can enter the country and who cannot. We will not accept an Israel that is for ultra-nationalists only."

For the record, NIF has a litmus test, one very political and ideological, for funding its recipients.

They must be "community-based", liberal, progressive, etc.

I know.

I attempted to obtain funding for Israel's first scientific-based media monitor NGO, Israel's Media Watch, but was refused.
