Former justice minister Tzipi Livni says the government’s judicial overhaul plan reveals its “messianic” intentions.
“The difference between [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and [United Torah Judaism MK Yisrael] Eichler is that one already calls the country a ‘Jewish ghetto’ and the other is likely to turn the country into one if we stop fighting.”
Livni was referring to Eichler’s ire yesterday at Netanyahu, after the prime minister observed that “God did not always protect Jews in Europe,” in an appeal to worshipers to not travel to Uman in Ukraine. Eichler hit back that it was really Zionists who turned their backs on “the Jews of the ghettos.”
Livni adds that while many have been saying “that we are ahead of a [potential] constitutional crisis, the constitutional crisis is already here.”
