Peace Now should be dismantled

There's some rising controversy over if Netanyahu himself is failing to make good on enabling Jewish towns in Judea/Samaria to build properly, and even in Jerusalem. It's good that the subject is beginning to gather steam. Until that can be addressed further, Likud MK Danny Danon has come out against the anti-Israeli Peace Now "organization", by saying what ought to be done with this very reprehensible movement:
(IsraelNN.com) MK Danny Danon of the Likud has called on the Registrar of Non-Profit Organizations to drop Peace Now from its list and to officially dismantle the group. Danon accused Peace Now of breaking the law by failing to publicize its funding from foreign governments.

According to Israeli law, a non-profit organization that receives funding from foreign bodies must publicize that fact on its website.

[...]

Among the foreign contributors to Peace Now were the Norwegian government, which gave 800,000 shekels, the European Union, which gave 451,600 shekels, and the government of Finland. In addition, the British government gave the group more than 540,000 shekels for the express purpose of tracking and publicizing Jewish growth in Judea and Samaria under its “Settlement Watch” project.

"The 'Peace Now' movement allows itself, as an extension of its activities undermining the state, to violate laws and regulations,” Danon said. “Peace Now is acting as an agent on behalf of foreign governments, which blatantly interfere in internal Israeli affairs.”
And on a related note, Moshe Yaalon, deputy prime minister extraordinaire, called Peace Now's views/approach a "virus" (more on that here, via Israpundit). He says though that he was quoted out of context in the video he appeared in. That said, it should be noted that he was speaking at a meeting with the irrational Moshe Feiglin. I understand that it could all be a strategic move on Yaalon's part, but still, there are some good questions to be raised if he should be associating himself with someone like Feiglin.
