And our own racist morons

This is what it comes to when extremists use the tension of the war days to push their moronic agenda:

Israel bans Arab parties from running in upcoming elections

The Central Elections Committee (CEC) yesterday banned the Arab parties United Arab List-Ta'al and Balad from running in next month's parliamentary elections amid accusations of racism from Arab MKs. Both parties intend to challenge the decision in the Supreme Court.

Members of the CEC conceded yesterday that the chance of the Supreme Court's upholding the ban on both parties was slim.
The only thing extremists breed is more extremists - on the other side.

In this regard I had a refreshing experience listening to the radio interview with Benjamin Begin, one of the Likud notables today. He was clearly against this punitive and destructive idea. Nice to know that, while you are in disagreement with a man, you can still respect his integrity - it goes in the family, apparently.

I hope the Supreme Court gives them a finger - and the sooner the better.
