Petition to Block 'Nakba Day' Supreme Court Judge

The grassroots Zionist student movement Im Tirtzu on Tuesday called on Justice Minister Tzipi Livni (Hatnua) to rescind the nomination of Prof. Barak Medina to the Supreme Court, after he pressed for the "right" of Arab residents to protest Israel's very existence.

Im Tirtzu cited a campaign initiated by Medina for academics to sign an open letter to the University of Haifa President Amos Shapira, pressing him to allow a "Nakba Day" ceremony on May 15 commemorating the "catastrophe" of modern Israel's establishment.
