Knesset committee blocks ban of Islamic Movement

OK, let me see if I've got this straight. All Kahane related political parties are illegal in Israel because they advocate safely removing the moslems from Israel and placing them in arab countries where they share common religious, cultural backgrounds. Meanwhile, it is considered "racist" to even hold a vote on banning moslem parties and movements that openly seek to exterminate the Jewish State .

Jerusalem Post - More than two-thirds of the members of the Knesset House Committee walked out of a meeting of the panel on Monday to protest a bill that would ban the Islamic Movement's northern branch.

MK Yisrael Katz (Likud) had asked the committee to speed up the legislative process for the bill. At the prompting of coalition Chairman Avigdor Yitzhaki (Kadima), however, most of the lawmakers got up and left, leaving only seven of the 25 MKs in the room.

Committee Chairwoman Ruhama Avraham (Kadima) was forced to cancel the vote, since Knesset bylaws require a quorum of nine MKs.

Yitzhaki, however, told Israel Beiteinu MKs that if they supported the bill, he would punish them by delaying the appointment of MK Stas Meseznikov (Israel Beiteinu) to the Finance Committee, a move promised the party as part of the latest cabinet reshuffle.

"This bill is unconstitutional, extremist and racist, and no member of the coalition should support it," Yitzhaki said

Katz's bill would designate the Islamic Movement an "illegal corporation," outlaw fund-raising for the organization and make it impossible for them to run in national or local elections.

Katz said he had been prompted to draft the bill by the arrest of the northern branch's leader, Raad Salah, for attacking policemen at the Temple Mount.

"Just like Nasrallah became a hero after the Lebanon war, Salah became a hero in the eyes of Islamic extremists after his recent remarks and behavior," said Katz. "If we do not remove Salah from our midst, we will be building an Israeli Nasrallah with our own hands."

Olmert's selection of drunken, submissive bondage boys as his Israeli ambassadors is making more and more sense by the day. What a pathetic and embarassing state of affairs Israel has devolved into.
