Israeli Civics 101

1 Adar 5766

The following was prompted by Shiloh Muse's well-stated piece "Israeli Supreme Court."

The Supreme Court functions as a shadow government in Israel. The Court makes up the law as it goes along, and according to its own wishes. It is guided primarily by its desire to maintain its power over the country. Yet, it is also influenced by European public opinion, Western, academic elite, sensibilities, and, of course, the all-encompassing hatred for all things Jewish (Read: all things related to Torah).

What happened to Arutz 7 in its attempt at "legal," radio broadcasting is a good example. After the K'nesset granted Arutz 7 its permit to broadcast, the Supreme Court intervened, claiming that the K'nesset legalized the radio station...illegally. ???

The Israeli Supreme Court maintains power through its self-perpetuation. New justices are appointed by a committee, comprised of the Chief Justice, one other justice, the attorney general, and a couple of token K'nesset members.

Truly democratic "checks and balances" are simply nonexistent in Israel.

No matter whom we elect this year (28 Adar 5766), or any other year, Aharon Baraq YSh"W, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, will continue to be our president, Shimon Peres YSh"W will be our Prime Minister, Yossi Beilin YSh"W will be the Ambassador-at-large and "moral conscience," etc. (May God help us!)

The only reason the K'nesset is now able to consider a possible "constitution," is because the left will be able to manipulate the outcome. A constitution will gain points with the U. S. AND give even more "legitimacy" to the Supreme Court, and to the accompanying Baraq-Peres shadow dictatorship.

This is the Erev Rav in action.

What are we going to do about it?
