Israeli High Court Overturns Arab Party Ban
Israel’s Supreme court overruled on Wednesday a parliamentary panel which had decided to bar Israeli Arab parties from running in next month’s parliamentary election.
The court issued its decision in response to an appeal filed by Arab politicians against the ban. A spokesman for the Courts Administration said judges overturned the ban in an unanimous vote Wednesday.
Definitely a good move, but I’m not sure it will undo the damage to Israel’s reputation that came from putting forward the ban in the first place.
