  1. Jamal Zahalka, the leader of Balad, has declared that if the Israeli Supreme Court confirms the ban, they are going to boycott the elections. I can’t make up my mind: in a way I hope the ban will be confirmed, and Balad will boycott the elections. Why continue to participate in the Knesset-mascarade where Palestinians are only allowed in order to show the world what-a-democracy-we-are.

  2. The Israeli Supreme Court is not exactly a paragon of reason and objectivity. So you must be right, it is an internal show, produced by Likud for the right (minded) electorate.

    I wonder though how readers feel about this: If Israel were populated with only “Jews” (I use quotes because it depends on their definition etc. etc. ), but if so, would it then qualify as a democracy for most liberal Westerners?? I’m just curious what others think. (If too far off topic, forgetaboutit.)

  3. Haneen Zoabi took such physical and verbal assaults for her presence on the Mavi Marmara that she has been used as a political punching bag ever since. One month before the elections this stunt is meant to remind the public that Arabs are never to be trusted.

    I don’t know how many Americans are even aware that non-Jews serve in the Knesset (or even that non-Jews live in Israel).
