Right-wing group protests ‘judicial dictatorship’ as court debates Netanyahu’s future

Some 100 protesters from the right-wing Im Tirtzu group are demonstrating outside the Supreme Court as justices inside debate petitions against Benjamin Netnayahu forming a government while under indictment.

The protesters are accusing the court of abusing its power by unlawfully interfering in the makeup of the executive branch, chanting slogans including “Stop stealing our democracy” and “This isn’t Iran.”

“The High Court justices are twisting the law and using it as a tool to advance their political goals,” says Im Tirtzu CEO Matan Peleg.

“This blatant violation of the basic principles of democracy endangers the future of the State of Israel, and the time has come for the judges to end their judicial dictatorship and realize that this is a democracy, not Iran.”
