Yisrael Beytenu Condemns Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Ban on Zoabi

Published on: February 18, 2015

The Supreme Court on Wednesday overturned a decision to disqualify  Knesset candidate Hanin Zoabi of the Joint (Arab) List from participating in the upcoming general elections.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman condemned the decision, and said the ruling was “a mark of disgrace against Israeli democracy” and termed it “outrageous” and “regrettable.”

Anyone “with a pair of eyes knows that Zoabi violated the law against those supporting terror and the armed struggle against Israel, or those denying the existence of the state of Israel as a Jewish state serving in its parliament,” he said.

Yisrael Beytenu candidate Sharon Gal also came out strongly against the ruling.

“Unfortunately, the court gave a green light to the continued incitement of Hanin Zoabi,” he said in a statement. “Now there is a legal stamp of approval for her strong statements and radical behavior against the state of Israel and the IDF,” he said in a statement. “Too bad that this is the message to all the supporters of terrorism and collaborator with terrorism and inciters.”
