Good is not enough for levy. If things are not perfect, they are just Bad. Of course, this is not a realistic view. The fact is that the Supreme Court is the real protector of civil rights in Israel. But the Court has also to be careful. Israel has no constitution, only Basic Laws, and to change these it takes only 61 Knesset vote (a majority of members, not merely a plurality.) It is too easy for the Knesset to pass a law that will diminish Supreme Court authority or overturn its rulings (as has been proposed a few times). When the Court itself is split about 50:50, it is more prudent not to cancel a Knesset law. This is the real world, Mr. Levy, not some ideal world.
