Liberman says outpost has 100% chance of being rejected by High Court

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, who has publicly spoken out against the outpost legalization bill, says his Yisrael Beytenu party will support it in tonight’s final votes.

But he says you “don’t have to be a genius” to see that the High Court of Justice will torpedo the law. “The chance of it being rejected by the High Court is 100%,” says Liberman at the weekly faction meeting.

Liberman also announces his party will vote against the Shas party’s proposed Western Wall bill. He says he doesn’t know why the Western Wall mixed-gender plaza compromise hasn’t been implemented on the one hand, and on the other hand, the ultra-Orthodox party is seeking to impose even stricter Orthodox rules at the holy site.

“We will vote against this bill,” he says. “It should be said in advance.”
