    A Palestinian-Israeli politician is appealing a court ruling barring her from running in next month's election.

    Last week, Knesset member Haneen Zoabi was disqualified for "undermining" Israel.

    That is because she was on board the Mavi Marmara ship which was boarded by Israeli troops as it approached waters off Gaza in May 2010 as part of an international flotilla challenging Israel's blockade on the territory controlled by the Hamas.

    Israel's Supreme court now has four days to decide whether to revoke the ban.
