Top Judge: Something Must be Done About Arab Vote Fraud


The returns are in – and among electoral activists in Judea and Samaria, the vote is almost unanimous: Voter fraud in Arab communities is rampant, and something must be done immediately to prevent a repeat of the massive fraud the activists said took place in last month's elections.

No less a figure than Judge Elyakim Rubinstein, Chairman of the Elections Committee for the 19th Knesset, suggested placing cameras in polling places to prevent ballot-box stuffing and other types of fraud. Even though voting is supposed to be a private affair, said Rubinstein, allowing elections to proceed based on fraud was unacceptable.
