Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu again says he’s seeking to reach agreement on judicial reform, after passing the first piece of legislation in his government’s push to weaken the judiciary without any opposition support.

“On the eve of Tisha B’Av, I believe it’s possible to reach agreements among ourselves, and together with my friends we are working toward that,” Netanyahu writes on Twitter, referring to the Jewish fast day that begins this evening.

Opposition figures have so far dismissed Netanyahu’s public overtures, charging the premier is beholden to hardline partners who will not let him compromise.
