President Biden urges Netanyahu and his coalition not to move ahead with the imminent legislation of the first bill in the planned judicial overhaul.

In a statement to Axios and Walla! journalist Barak Ravid,  Biden says, “It looks like the current judicial reform proposal is becoming more divisive, not less.”

“Given the range of threats and challenges confronting Israel right now, it doesn’t make sense for Israeli leaders to rush this — the focus should be on pulling people together and finding consensus,” the president says.
