Massive Protests Erupt Across Israel After PM Netanyhau Fired His Defense Minister


CNN: Mass protests erupt in Israel after Netanyahu fires minister who opposed judicial overhaul 

Jerusalem CNN — Massive crowds filled the streets of the Israeli city of Tel Aviv late Sunday night after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired his defense minister over his opposition to a planned judicial overhaul. 

Waving Israeli flags and chanting “democratia,” protestors could be seen blocking streets and bridges, including the Ayalon Highway. Protesters lit several fires on the main highway in Tel Aviv, their acrid, black smoke billowing into the sky, partly obscuring some of the city’s iconic skyscrapers. 

Demonstrators also gathered beside the highway, burning scrap metal and wood with almost no police around.

I do Fentanyl and I am an independent voter. My use and my friend's use has nothing to do with Biden. Try some and stop blaming a political figure you dislike for something you like and can get it no matter who is in the White House.

I support Netanyahu 100%. Get rid of all the leftist Judges. Get rid of all the leftists everywhere! They are poison! Leftists are nothing but poison--demented fools intent on destroying everything. The people of the earth must rise up and rid the planet of the plague of Leftists.

Israel and Iran may be the only countries, where the judges select new judges and judges are not voted in by the people or appointed by the representatives of the people.

So the leftist judges of Israel and the mullahs of Iran have much in common.

I get a kick out of the Ray Epps troll.

Netanyahu always struck me as a cagey politician especially given the weirdness that is Israeli politics. I think he goofed this time. Will he now find a cagey solution? Stay tuned.

"Judges who serve on the Supreme Court, as well as the district and magistrate courts, are appointed by the Judicial Selection Committee, which consists of nine members: the Minister of Justice, another cabinet member, two Knesset members (in practice one is from the coalition and the other is from the opposition), two members of the Israel Bar Association, and the President of the Supreme Court and two other Supreme Court justices. The committee is chaired by the Minister of Justice. It can appoint judges to the magistrate and district courts by a majority vote, but appointing a Supreme Court judge requires a majority of at least 7 to 9 or two less than the number present at the meeting."

Looks to me like you could easily pack the court. With some many political parties having an opposition member is window dressing. You can pick and choose your opposition member.
