Israeli High Court Overturns Zoabi Ban
The Israeli High Court has overturned on Sunday the ban of Haneen Zoabi of the Balad Party from running for re-election to her position in the Knesset, Israel's parliament.
Zoabi, a Palestinian who has Israeli citizenship, was banned from running in the upcoming elections by the Elections Committee predominantly due to her participation in the 2010 "Freedom Flotilla." She was aboard the MV Mavi Marmara, on which 9 Turkish citizens were killed; the UN's investigation into the killings deemed that 5 of the 9 were executions.
