Everyone’s Favorite Hypocrites

How will it seem now that Israel’s Election Commission has seen it fit to ban two Arab deputies from standing for re-election, because it does not agree with their political views on the plight of their fellow Palestinians? The decision to bar Azmi Bishara and his Balad party from contesting his seat in the Jan. 28 elections comes a day after it disqualified another Israel Arab MP, Ahmad Tibi. The charge against them is the catch-all “seeking the destruction” of the Jewish state. It is an accusation that doesn’t need to be proved in Sharon’s Israel. If it is an Arab, accusation is proof.

It could be worse, you know. They could claim that you have to belong to a certain religion to even vote, much less hold office. Israel says that to be a politician you can’t be a traitor. (Look the work up if it confuses you.) Saudi Arabia, on the other hand, requires you to be a Muslim.

Just in case you were wondering, it wasn’t the “Jewish State” part that got them disqualified. It was the “armed revolt” part. You know, treason.

If you strike at a king, make certain that you kill him.
