The Arab Knesset member Hanin Zoabi has been disqualified
from running for Knesset, but it's uncertain if the leftist dominated Supreme Court will back it:
Israel’s Central Elections Committee voted on Wednesday to disqualify Balad party MK Hanin Zoabi from participating in the forthcoming general elections. The committee voted against disqualifying the Balad party itself, as well as the United Arab List party.
There's another report here
The decision to disqualify Zoabi will be appealed at the Supreme Court, probably next week, where it is likely to be overturned. [...]
The petition against Zoabi, which was spearheaded by Likud MK Ofir Akunis, claimed that the Arab Israeli Knesset member undermined the state and its institutions, including the IDF, by participating in the Mavi Marmara flotilla that tried to breach the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip in May 2010.
Balad and the United Arab List party were accused of supporting the Palestinian armed struggle against Israel.
