Addressing the Knesset in honor of the parliament’s 74th anniversary, Opposition Leader Yair Lapid warns that the government’s planned judicial overhaul will tear Israeli society in two.
“The point of no return for Israeli society is only a few weeks away from us. If you pass this legislation, there will be no way to fix it. There is no going back. This will break the back and core of Israeli society,” Lapid says.
“The flames were lit in this house, but the fire extinguishers are also in this house. As long as there is a chance to stop the legislation that divides this nation in two, we will continue to fight. But if it passes — it will divide this nation in two,” he says.
