Far-right activist and National Jewish Front chairman Baruch Marzel remained defiant Monday over his controversial role as monitor of an election polling station in the Arab town of Umm el-Fahm. Speaking to the Knesset Channel regarding the possible disturbances that his presence could cause on Tuesday's Election Day, Marzel said he would "leave it to the police," who he said must decide "whether we are in control of the Galilee and Umm el-Fahm or whether we let Arabs control what goes on there."
