Israel Supreme Court: Bishara and Marzel can run in the elections
“A panel of 11 Supreme Court justices on Thursday overturned the Central Elections Committee's decisions to disqualify Arab MKs Ahmed Tibi, Azmi Bishara and the Balad party from running in the January 28 election. The court also upheld the decisions to allow far-right activist Baruch Marzel to run, and to disqualify Likud candidates Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and Moshe Feiglin”.

Although I personally think it is justified that both Bishara and Marzel be disqualified from running, I’m rather relieved by this. One less headache.

Bishara is still awaiting his trial for supporting terrorism in a speech delivered in Syria.
