The White House said on Tuesday that if a foreign agents bill passed by Georgia’s parliament becomes law, the US would have to “fundamentally reassess” its relations with the country.

The bill, titled “On the Transparency of Foreign Influence,” requires non-governmental organizations that receive at least 20% of their funding from abroad to register as foreign agents. Proponents of the bill in the ruling Georgian Dream Party have compared it to the US Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), which requires individuals or entities engaging in lobbying or other activity on behalf of a foreign country to register as foreign agents with the US Department of Justice.

The US and other Western nations have compared the bill to a similar law enacted by Russia in 2012. The Russian law was part of Moscow’s response to the US government funding NGOs and opposition parties.

Will Georgians provide an exemption for the jews as the U S has?

I can recall during the 70s as a young man making deliveries at the florist shop on the north side of Chicago, a sign on a local Synagogue which said, SAVE SOVIET JEWS.

You surely recall when Pontius Pilate asked the Jews, "What should I do with this man?" meaning Christ, they cried "Crucify him!" ;)

I am not any where near that old to have been there, I have never the less read about it a number of times though.

None of us are that old.

But the local Lutheran pastor says Potters Field is still there. ;)

When I was thirteen or so I delivered news papers to a number of houses on what was called Potter's Hill. Cooper's alley was on the other side of town. When there was snow we'd ride sleds down Potter's Lane if you didn't make the turn you would get good air time right up until you hit the side of the RoboWash car wash building.
