UKMW prompts Guardian correction on claim Israel ‘banned’ Arab parties

A Guardian editorial claimed that Israel has ‘banned’ Arab political parties. In fact, as we noted in a complaint to editors, though there was, in 2009, a decision by the Israel Central Elections Committee to bar two Israeli Arab parties due to allegations they supported terrorism, the Israeli Supreme Court¬†overturned the ‘ban’ only two weeks later, before it could go into effect.¬† The Guardian upheld our complaint and issued a correction.
