Anti-overhaul reservists: Government that defies High Court will ‘find itself with no army’

A group of 1,340 reservists for elite special operations units in the Israel Defense Forces hits back at Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana’s warning that the coalition won’t accept a potential High Court of Justice ruling nullifying judicial overhaul legislation it has passed into law.

“The Knesset speaker expressly announced now that he won’t respect the High Court ruling,” says a statement from the group of reservists, which has long been threatening to stop showing up for volunteer duty in protest of the overhaul.

“We know for a fact that a government that doesn’t obey the High Court will find itself the next day without an army, without a Shin Bet and without a Mossad.”
