That's not exactly true lironj - 23/01/2003 11:42:57 AM

First off, the appeal was short, at the High Court, and they do get to run in the elections next week.

And those charges where no light matter. Truth is that no decent country would let them run, except Israel.
Would the US let an aid of Bin Laden be a Senator?
Even if the State of Kentucky had a muslim fundumentalist majority and he was elected democraticly, I'm not sure the US would have let him reside in Senate.

The two Knesset members, one of them an aid of Arafat, where asked why, as parliament members, they did not condemn suicide bombings. They were told that if they condemn them before the commitee they would be allowed to run in the elections.
They would not condemn.
And I say, if you have parliament members supporting terrorists, well, f**k democracy, what is it good for anyway???
Might as well turn totalitarian like our good neighbours, and that way also opens up other ways to deal with problems.
Ofcourse, as I said, the commitee's decision was over-ruled by liberal judges, who apperently live in Sweden for all they seem to mind reality.
