Verdict Sunday in Zoabi Case
The Supreme Court will announce its verdict Sunday in the case of MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad). Zoabi is appealing the Elections Committee's decision to bar her from Knesset.
Zoabi was barred for anti-Israel incitement following her participation in an attempt to forcibly enter Gaza by sea that included an attack on IDF soldiers, her meetings with Hamas terrorists, and more.
Balad party leaders say that if the ban on her participation in the upcoming elections is upheld, they will call on Israeli Arabs to boycott the elections.
