The Israeli Supreme Court is a joke. They self-appoint each other, all come from the same law school, are all Ashkenazai, and could all be photocopies of one another. There is no constitution to base their rulings on (because they choose not to base them on Torah... G-d forbid! No wait... G-d.... nevermind). Their decisions are political and routinely ignored by all in the government... religious or not.
