Israel's increasing building of Jewish settlements - deemed illegal under worldwide law - in Palestinian territory has drawn intense global criticism.
Political reaction to Netanyahu's threat was quick in coming.
"My policy is clear: not to meet with diplomats who visit Israel and meet with organizations that defame IDF soldiers and try to prosecute our soldiers as war criminals, which diplomats would never consider doing in the United States, Britain or anywhere else", Netanyahu said in a statement.
Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog, who heads the Zionist Union, said Netanyahu's behavior was harming Israel's relationship with "a true friend". However, both sides were keen to stress that they didn't expect any long-term impact on relations.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called off a meeting with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, Netanyahu's spokesman said.
With respect to the Middle East conflict, our solidarity with Israel also means working to ensure that Israel and Palestine can live side by side in dignity and peace... But he added that it did not spell "the end of diplomatic ties between the two countries". "We need to keep this a little bit in perspective". Canceling his meeting with Netanyahu would be "regrettable", said Gabriel, who visited Israel to participate in activities connected to Holocaust memorial day Monday.
"It is completely normal that we speak with civil society representatives during a visit overseas", he said.

But neither Breaking the Silence nor B'Tselem can be accurately described as "social groups".
