Itamar Ben Gvir: The Supreme Court is crossing a red line again

Chairman Itamar Ben Gvir of the Otzma Yehudit Party has attacked the Supreme Court's decision to allow Knesset member Heba Yazbak to run for Knesset.

Yazbak has praised Samir Kuntar, leader of a 1979 attack in Nahariya which took the lives of three members of the Haran family. Ben Gvir said, "The Supreme Court judges cannot look into the eyes of the Haran family - they have actually expressed their approval for one who praises the murderers of their [the Harans'] loved ones. The Supreme Court is again crossing a red line and through poor legal discourse, has qualified an admirer of those who murder Jewish children."
