    Re: Israel poll ban for Arab parties

    If Israel has made it's own existence a priority for the last 50-60 years then it would seem like COMMON ****ING SENSE that it would deny parties who don't support this from joining in the political process created to support such a priority.

    Stop being dishonest.
    There was nothing dishonest about it. I have no idea whether or not it is dishonest. I'm simply stating that if there is evidence then it is entirely justified.

    Is there an update on this issue? Was the ban overturned? The elections are to be held in February, I believe, so even if the ban is overturned it could have serious implications for these parties' candidates, given that they were focusing attention away from the elections and onto this issue.

    And apparently the courts will make the final decision. We should all accept that decision.

    Israel needs to drop this "recognize" crap. The way they're acting, they don't deserve to be recognized. And besides, why recognize a country that is already there? And there hasn't been any country or group that has threatened Israel's existance for 60 years.
    Are you really THAT ignorant? It was only invaded by its neighbors once and another time they were preparing for war and had actually committed acts of war in the last 41 years! No threat. What idiocy!

    So long as they fit all the requirements (citizenship, age etc etc) then yeah I wouldn't care if they ran for an office. Doubt they'd get elected but it's their right if they are American Citizens. I wouldn't like them and definately wouldn't vote for them. But it would be within their rights.

    Re: Israel poll ban for Arab parties

    Just another example of the true face of certain politicians in Israel and the ugly face of Zionism. This ruling will be overturned by the high court, and if not, then Israel should be removed from the list of democratic states and join the same list as its Arab neighbours.

    This would be like the Republican's having the Democratic party banned from the elections because the Democratic party is against the Iraq war.....

    These parties have never said they were against Israel, and have in fact said they are Israelis.... and yet that was the basis of the banning... pathetic and openly racist apartheid Zionist policy.. Israel should be ashamed.
