Breaking the Silence activists were documented in the act of passing cash to Ezra Nawi, the person who organizes provocations against Israeli soldiers (that Breaking the Silence then uses as fodder.)
Breaking the Silence: Are you funding Ezra Nawi's provocations?

And Arutz-7 synopsized a report from Yediot:
More details emerged Tuesday morning regarding a secret recording of a meeting between ex-diplomat Alon Liel and about five central activists in Breaking the Silence, a group that besmirches the IDF abroad. The meeting took place in the Tel Aviv offices of Breaking the Silence – which receives funding from the New Israel Fund, among other sources – on December 17, 2015, and was recorded by a "secret agent" from nationalist group Ad Kan.This is exactly how J-Street thinks. Screw what the Israeli public wants, because we know better and we need to use outsiders to pressure Israel since we dislike their democratic processes. (But when Israeli point out how these left-wing groups are trying to hide their agenda, well, that's "anti-democratic."
According to Yifat Erlich of Yediot Aharonot, who saw the entire recording, Nadav Weiman, Breaking the Silence's coordinator of activists, started the conversation by explaining that the group has been coming under fire for attacking Israel abroad, and describing a feeling that matters were spinning "out of control."
He described Liel as "a good friend of the organization who has been accompanying us from the outset."
Liel told the group that "international activity is critical." One reason, he said, is that the Left has lost the battle for Israeli public opinion.
"I receive terrible ricochets from the Israeli public," he continued. "I am threatened. All of my friends are threatened. I believe that only the international community can change public opinion, as happened in South Africa."
One of the activists asked Liel if the group's legitimacy does not depend on the Israeli public.
Liel replied: "What legitimacy do you have? You have a two percent legitimacy, you see. But what two percent? The most moral people, the brightest ones, who can see 20 years ahead, who are not brainwashed by the messianic right-wing propaganda. Only people who do not depend on anyone. I can guarantee you that [ex-Shabak head Yuval] Diskin and [MK Yaakov] Perry think the same way. [But Yesh Atid head] Yair Lapid has come out against you, so Perry knows that if he says a word, he will be booted from the Knesset list."
