Ex-Israeli amb. to US: Israeli diplomats all around the world should push to have pro-Palestinian groups “outlawed”

From a 20 May Facebook post by Danny Ayalon (bolding added by me):

In the past two days, a video where two Palestinian teens are supposedly seen collapsing in front of cameras next to Camp Ofer has been spreading across the social networks. Palestinian commentators explain that the boys were intentionally shot, for no reason at all, by IDF soldiers. […] The organization for the “protection of Palestinian children” stands behind this latest video, as they were behind the Muhammad al-Durrah video. The organization is a part of a network of Palestinian NGOs who work to isolate Israel and attack her diplomatically. […] When it is revealed that this video is fabricated, we must hit these organizations where it hurts them the most: the tax-exempt fundraising. Israel ambassadors in countries where these organizations seek funding, mainly the USA, should work to have these organizations outlawed, denying them their ability to raise tax-exempt donations.

Considering that the IRS has already threatened the tax-exempt status of a Christian charity for sending aid to the besieged Gaza Strip and that US government officials are constantly falling over themselves to placate Israel and its US supporters, I’d say this policy proposal would have a chance of succeeding in the US.
