What is going on with the Israeli Supreme Court?


This discussion delves into the Israeli political system, highlighting the significant role and influence of the Supreme Court. The speakers touch on various topics including the distinction between laws and 'basic laws' in Israel, which are somewhat equivalent to a constitution. A key point of the discussion is the power of the Supreme Court to strike down these 'basic laws', a first in Israeli history, leading to the crisis of the judicial reform that took up headlines prior to the war. The hosts also examine how this development impacts the democratic process and the balance of judicial, legislative, and executive powers. Relevant examples such as laws related to ultra-Orthodox military service and illegal immigration highlight the controversy about the Supreme Court's decisions. The conversation concludes with reflections on the difficulties of reforming the system and avoiding a constitutional crisis.
