The High Court of Justice on Wednesday by a narrow 2-1 vote granted Avigdor Liberman's Yisrael Beytenu party the right to distribute copies of the special Charlie Hebdo magazine edition which caricatures the Muslim prophet Mohammed.

Justices Noam Sohlberg and Esther Hayot outvoted Supreme Court president Miriam Naor in her fist major decision being pushed into the minority since recently taking the reins of the court, and reversed the Central Elections Commission decision of their colleague Justice Salim Joubran, who had declared the magazine's distribution an illegal pre-election gift.
