The court is not beyond a CHECK in order to BALANCE the 3 branches of govt. As it stands today the judge appoint themselves, replicating their worldveiw, cementing it as the paradigm of interpretation within Israel. The check must come from an elected branch in which in the end the people have a partial expression of the type of interpretation they will accept in order for the whole society to follow. As it stands today, there is a huge gulf between the elitist court and the law that is interpreted for the public. More & more the people have lost faith in this institution due to its activism and its dogmatic leftism....it is time to subject the court to the will of the people through confirmation of judges done by the legislature and appointment by the cheif executive..anything else will only ensure the continuation of the branja, combina of the judiciary, and justice being perverted.These retired judges are completely out of line, and reinforce the stereotype of the courts gone amuck!

Let them come. Let them come in droves. Let artists like Bruce Springsteen and Steve Van Zandt bring Israelis who need to hear it, a message of social justice and freedom for Palestinians.18:17 03.05.16 | 3 comments
