HEROIC... NOT

Run Zoabi, Run

You might recall the famous case of MK Azmi Bishara, not coincidentally, also from the Balad party.

One of the most serious of problems that Israel faces is the unclear delineation and definition of powers, and that is specifically the Knesset’s job to define in law.

But they haven’t.

So instead, we have ridiculous situations like this, where we have a party and an individual who is in clear violation of the law, but because the Supreme Court doesn’t like that particular application of the law, it ignores it.

And we have a Knesset that is afraid or unable to stand up for its rights and say “We represent the democratic will of the people, and you, the Supreme Court, have overstepped your bounds of your mandate.”

Just like the Knesset was afraid to go all the way and impeach Zoabi, and just like Bishara actually continued to receive money from the Knesset for quite a while after his escape. The Knesset is afraid to properly deal with issues.

Other examples of this failure are the Women at the Wall, and the Reform Movement, and the rights of Jews to buy and own properties in Hebron.

And that leaves outside interested parties the ability to appeal to the Supreme Court and override the will of the people.

So I say, yes, if the Knesset isn’t willing to properly deal with Zoabi and put her in jail where I think she belongs, and it isn’t willing to deal with a runaway Supreme Court, then it gets what it deserves, and it deserves to have Zoabi as a member.

  1. I think Yasser Arafat appointed the supreme court justice's

  2. Yehuda Cohen says:

    No it wasn't Arafat, it was the Ford foundation with an investment price of 20 million dollars.

  3. Don't your points 1 & 2 form a contradictio in terminis?
    Is a jewish state only [#1] democratic and not a type of racism [#2] to non-jews?

  4. Don't your points 1 & 2 form a contradictio in terminis?

  5. The fact that Zoabi is allowed to run and be a memebr of the Knesset show that your argument make s no sense. A Jewish state can still have non-Jewish citizens whose rights are protected. In this case their rights are more protected then the average Jew.

  6. Gee what a stuffup of legalities. An attorney General who takes eons to move and then when he does, its with timing that makes one wonder – Is he in the game of Law or the game of Politics? Then we have Justices who believe they're G-ds and misbehave as if the legal system is their's to rewrite. As for Zoabi, she should run – like a rabbit. Run Zoabi, run Zoabi, run, run, run. For if we catch you we'll have some fun, fun, fun!
