Zatara Should Not Be Allowed to Be Deputy Mayor

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
In Haifa the new mayor, Einat Kalish Rotem, has decided to appoint City Councilman Raja Zatara as a deputy mayor. Minister of Interior Aryeh Deri is disturbed by this upcoming appointment as Zatara is an avowed supporter of both Hezbollah and Hamas, supports the BDS movement and also supports and promotes activities against the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state. Deri is working to prevent the appointment. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has now said that he agrees with Deri's opinion on the matter and supports his efforts.
I agree with all of the above. An enemy of the State should not be allowed to attain such positions.
I go further though. Such a person should be disqualified from running in the elections at all. His citizenship should, perhaps, be stripped. Should the deputy mayor position the only thing he cannot do? Why let him run in elections and be involved in politics at all, if you are not going to let him be deputy mayor?
