Israeli right to be allowed to march in Um-el-Fahm

In an astounding decision from Israel's leftist 'Supreme Court' on Wednesday, the court unanimously ruled that 'rightists' should be allowed to march through the 'Israeli-Arab' town of Um-el-Fahm in the lower Galilee. But only after the elections.
The ruling came after extremists Itamar Ben-Gvir and Baruch Marzel in December petitioned the court after police decided to delay the demonstration until further notice.

The State Prosecutor's Office argued that the march needed to be deferred until after the election because of the recent hostilities in Gaza, and the deteriorating security situation in Israel. [Deteriorating? I actually believe it's gotten better since Operation Cast Lead. CiJ]


In December, the mayor of Umm al-Fahm said residents would turn out in force to prevent the march, whenever it might take place.
Someone should ask the Mayor of Um-el-Fahm if he agrees with his fellow 'Israeli Arab' mayor from neighboring Sakhnin that he would gladly be a 'shahid' in Jerusalem.

By the way, a mayor gets paid NIS 27,000 per month by the State of Israel (plus benefits). The current exchange rate is about NIS 3.9 to the dollar. That's an excellent salary in this country.

By the way, how did Edmond Levy ever get onto this court?
Justice Edmond Levy asked the prosecution, "If a group wished to demonstrate today for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, and the demonstrators were waving Israeli and Palestinian flags, and threats were heard against from this or that side - would you also say this march needed to be postponed until after the election?"

Levy was referring to the rightists' intention to display Israeli flags as they marched through the town.

The justice called the march "inconsequential," and said that Israel, with its army and police, should be able to secure it.
Don't rejoice just yet fellow Israelis. The fact that Levy had this argument with the State prosecution means that the State opposed the march and you and I paid for it.

By the way, here's a picture of a little 'demonstration' that took place in Um-el-Fahm on April 3, 2008:

They don't look very Israeli, do they?

Carl, Israel's leftist attorney General Manny Mazuz wants the Israeli Supreme Court to reinstate two anti-Zionist, Fifth Column Arab parties eligibility to run for the Knesset. You can guess what side he would take if it was the Kahanists who wanted to run for the Knesset. Arabs have every right to advocate Israel's destruction inside and outside the Knesset and Jews are forbidden to do anything about it.

In that connection Meretz has asked the aforementioned Mazuz to open a criminal investigation into Avigdor Lieberman's wanting to deal with Israel's Arab terrorist Fifth Columnists as they deserve to be dealt with. It wouldn't surprise me to see it happen and for the record, its a sure bet Israel's leftist Supreme Court will also overturn the ban on the parties of treason.

Welcome to the Israeli First Amendment - as defined by the country's Left.

UPDATE: As expected, Israel's leftist Supreme Court overturned the Knesset's ban on Arab Fifth Columnist parties to treason and allowed them to run for the Knesset. We know well what the leftists would do if Kahanists wanted to run for the Knesset.

I heard about the Arab parties last night but didn't get around to blogging it. We know what the left DID to Kahane's Kach party in 1988 when it was poised to win 10% of the Knesset. Kach is the only party ever actually banned.

Kahane bothered the left not because he was a racist but because he said so many things that threatened their power and they united against him. On the other hand, the Arabs are useful in keeping the Right divided so they've never been banned.
