Otzma Leyisrael Slams 'Ivory Tower' Judges

The Otzma Leyisrael faction slammed the Supreme Court on Sunday following a verdict allowing MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) to run for Knesset. Zoabi's candidacy had been disqualified by the Elections Committee due to her statements and actions showing support for terrorism.
"The court has become the left's 'home court,'" the party said in a statement. "The judges sit in an ivory tower, cut off from the people. The message that Zoabi and her associates are getting today is that they may continue to harm the state, to incite, to rebel, to organize more 'flotillas,' and the Supreme Court will continue to protect them."
