Knesset votes down ‘Zoabi bill’

A bill that would make it easier to ban politicians who voiced support for terrorism from running for the Knesset was voted down on Wednesday.

The Basic Law: Knesset legislation states that a candidate or party list may not run in an election for the Knesset if its actions “clearly or implicitly reject Israel’s existence as a Jewish and democratic state, incites to violence or supports armed conflict by an enemy state or terrorist organization against Israel.”

The Knesset voted on an amendment proposed by MK Sharon Gal (Yisrael Beytenu) sought to add the words “including statements” after “actions.”
