Labor asks election cmte. to ban 'racist' Shas ad

The Labor party has petitioned the chairman of the Central Election Committee, Judge Elyakim Rubinstein, to ban a Shas campaign TV ad that mocks non-Jewish Russian citizens.


In the petition, MK Nino Abesadze brands the ad as "racist" and disrespectful of the olim in Israel. "It's hard to believe that such bigoted sentiments are given a stage in Israel, in 2013, at the tax-payers' expense," she said. (Tele Yahav)
