Antisemtic It Is

In the last Knesset elections, the Shinui party ran an election advert on TV which was subsequently heavily cencored by the Central Elections Committee Chariperson Supreme Court Judge Dorit Beinisch. (for Hebrew readers, see these stories: 1, 2).

Well, Maariv newspaper reported yesterday (and I haven't been able to find any online references so you're just going to have to trust me, wait, maybe I can scan it) that the High Court of Justice, Aharon Barak as President, declared the clip "comparable to antisemtic propaganda" and rejected the Shinui party appeal.

He further wrote, "the clip arouses in the eyes of the beholder difficult reminisces of millions of our brothers that were burnt alive in the Nazi crematoria".

Here is what I scanned:
