It mocks legitimacy. Dominant hardliners are rogue legislators. They represent despotism, not democracy. They hold supreme power. They'll likely keep it in January elections. Israelis aren't wise enough to replace them.
In response to Israel's CEC ruling, Zuabi said:
"The decision is a result of political vindictiveness and a pathetic attempt to harm the representative of the Arab public."
She's convinced that "the struggle for full equality is the only way to achieve democracy."
Israel's CEC "blatantly ignored the attorney general's unequivocal opinion that there is no legal basis for the disqualification."
"It is now clear that the elections committee is a political body meant to harm the representatives of the Arab public, and has nothing to do with democracy."
"Instead of holding a public debate, they wish to silence me, and with me a whole demographic. We will not cooperate with such silencing."
"Attempts to disqualify me are an attack on everybody who is against the occupation."
