Anti-government protest leaders decry Levin’s ‘mafialike’ remarks about court

Leaders of protests against the government’s judicial overhaul liken Justice Minister Yariv Levin to a mob lawyer due to his comments against the High Court of Justice ahead of today’s key hearing on the prime minister recusal law.

“Levin is continuing to behave like an attorney for the Sicilian mafia and is sending threats toward the court as the discussion begins,” they say in a statement. “Such mafialike conduct happens only in a dictatorship.

“The man leading a dangerous leadership coup that is crushing the State of Israel already knows that millions will show up to defend the court and the gatekeepers [of democracy] in the face of his actions.”
