Watch: Banned campaign ad of the National Democratic Assembly

Created on 08 January 2013

Israel's Election Committee Chairperson, Judge Eliyakim Rubenstein, has banned a campaign ad of the National Democratic Assembly (NDA) for mocking Hatikva, the national anthem. Watch it here.

About the banned ad, which was to be heard on Israeli radio from Tuesday, Judge Rubenstein said that "from listening to the radio broadcast of the NDA I learned that it broadcasts Hativka in a distorted manner thar ridicules Hatikva, the anthem of the state of Israel. This is not acceptable to me as part of election campaigning." 

The National Democratic Assembly responded that this decision is a continuation of the policy to silence and frighten its constituency.

See the ad below. In the beginning and prior to the singing, Foreign Minister Lieberman is heard saying that "I've already tried to pass a law conditioning receipt of an identity card with a statement of loyalty to the singing of Hativka. In the next Knesset I will again attempt to pass this legislation. But now I've reached the conclusion that the anthem should be made suitable for the Arab population, so they can identify with it." Following the singing, the ad asks "funny? the situation is really not funny. These laws must be opposed. We must not leave the arena to them. This is the time for the NDA."
