Israeli President Isaac Herzog said his country is on the brink of civil war due to the judicial reforms of the new government.

“No one has any idea of ​​the real frontier of the civil war, where human life is at stake,” Herzog said in a video posted Wednesday. The rock is very close. “I will not let this happen at any cost,” he said.

Israel has been the scene of constant protests since the announcement of Netanyahu’s proposed reforms in January.

Massive protests against judicial regulation and the right-wing policies of the Netanyahu government in various Israeli cities, especially in Tel Aviv, are 10 weeks behind us.

Justice Minister Yariv Levin said January 5 that they plan to pass a law that would limit the powers of the Supreme Court and reduce the influence of the judiciary in the selection of judges.

The actions of the coalition government led by Netanyahu to transfer part of the judicial powers to parliament have caused tension between the government and the Israeli judiciary, especially the Supreme Court.

The Israeli Supreme Court, which acts as the highest court in the country, has the power to strike down laws passed by the Assembly on the grounds that they conflict with the “basic laws” adopted as a draft constitution.

Netanyahu’s government said in a court ruling that it would strip the Supreme Court of its power to strike down laws passed by Parliament.

The articles announced by the government in the judicial package have been heavily criticized on the grounds that they limit the jurisdiction of the judiciary in Israel and internationally.
