"Irregularities" In Arab Israeli Polling Stations

It's so obvious that the voting in the Arab sector isn't according to law. MK Dr. Arieh Eldad made a showing in Umm el-Fahm, but he couldn't stay.

I mentioned it to somebody who told me what happened to him during the last elections, three years ago. He was assigned to an Arab Israeli city.

He kept tabs on everything, so that there was no cheating as long as he could "hold it in," but being human, he was forced to leave the room for a few minutes, and in that time, the pile of over fifty envelopes, which had been sitting on the table were suddenly gone, stuffed in the ballot box. It was obvious that they used his human weakness to mark off voters who wouldn't be showing up and taking the same number of envelopes and quickly put their "favorite" ballot inside.

When the polls closed, he immediately reported it to the proper authorities and waited to be called to testify. Even though the media claimed that there had been investigations which were found to be "baseless," he was never called by the police.

I wish I had heard the story then. Now it's too late to do anything but it jives with the stories I remember hearing from a number of sources in the past.

The crazy electoral system plus the judicial dictatorship makes everyone get all caught up with gamesmanship and not see the obvious. This is a fixed game. There is no chance of a polling place getting disqualified as you suggest. The only way to change anything is to get power in a large party and then get our fractious national-religious-hareidi brothers and sisters roped in to join them once they see that it is working. With a massive majority after demographic shift, the prime minister will one fine day tell the Supreme Court to take it and stick it the way US president Andrew Jackson once did.
Otherwise it's civil war. If you want to approach the court, do it with a D9 bulldozer.

I guess they're too busy arresting patriots.
