    Where have ever found such a person ?! (I know I have read the great Article of one of the Shocken girl). But inspite of his pedigree, the guy is a demagogue who dare to counter his support for the present morphousolopgy of the Supreme Court. Just a simple of his childish defense: "...that the enemy of the Israeli Society and the enemy of Shderot's Children are not the Qassams.....but the Supreme Court>>"; if that is not a demagoguery at its primitive -atavistic level, then I beg to differ. Where is the Holmesian fundamental preservation of the Check and balance, and the limitation of each branch in a democratic society? Who is the executive and what is the Judiciary. The Article start quite clearly on the subject: "All persons are entitled to the protection of their life, body and dignity" It is the intent of the high court to make sure that the laws the Knesset has promulgated are properly interpreted, but not to create new laws so as to get more"extra-territoriality" by reducing the powers of the executive to the benefit of few unelected Judges. That is the point that somehow the current Shocken is stubbornly prefer not to see....
