A Knesset committee approved a bill that would ban extremist candidates from running for Israel’s Parliament. The bill would empower the Central Election Committee to ban any party or individual from running for the Knesset if they express support for the armed struggle of an enemy country or terrorist organization, engage in racist incitement or deny the existence of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.
