There is a big problem with the judiciary in Israel, which makes it quite different from the judiciary in the US and almost all other Western democracies. In the U.S., there is a division of powers between the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judicial institutions, in which each is responsible to the others and restricted by them, e.g., with nominations (made solely by the Executive branch, the President) to the Supreme Court and most other federal courts obliged to get the consent of Congress. But in Israel, the Supreme Court picks and nominates its own members, and is answerable neither to the Parliament nor the Prime Minister.
