What If We Announced We Wouldn't Let Arabs Or Left Wing Observe Our Voting?
Israel's Attorney General Mazzuz, Israel's head legal honcho, has been trying to prevent Baruch Marzel from heading the polling station in Umm el-Fahm.
Bauch Hashem, he failed.
G-d willing, more honest Jews from strong Zionists parties, like the National Union, Ichud Le'umi, will take the challenge, our civil responsibility and go to the more difficult polling stations.
Any polling station, which refuses them admittance, must be closed by the police, and the citizens shouldn't be able to vote. Mazzuz should have made an announcement like that, instead of trying to keep Marzel out.
Law is Law, and fair is fair.
Can you imagine if we dared keep out those we don't like? We be condemned. Our polling station would be closed and we'd be disenfranchised.
It's that simple.
