Friedmann's proposal is absolutely correct. It only seeks to limit the massive powers that the Supreme Court under Barak assigned to itself as the self-designated King of Israel. All polls show that the Israeli public, since Barak came to power and his handpicked successor, has lost all confidence in the impartiality of the Court. Immediate changes must also be undertaken in the choosing of the judges, taking away the political perpetuation of the Court as it stands now. The system has to be changed to the one that exists in the USA.
