This Referendum Bill does not appear to be a Basic Law. Therefore, while this bill requires that there be a referendum or a two-third Knesset majority, the bill **itself** can be annulled by the simple act of, ahem, enacting a new bill that replaces it. So this entire exercise is nothing but a political pantomime. Which begs the question: is Bibi the Punch? Or the Judy? "Benjamin Netanyahu, who once again called Wednesday for renewed talks with the Palestinians, is binding himself with constitutional chains." Aluf, there is rather a requirement for a "consititution" before there can be any "constitutional chains".
