Two highly knowledgeable panelists–Member of Knesset Simcha Rothman, chair of the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee and a driving force behind the reforms; and constitutional expert Professor Yaniv Roznai of Reichman University, an outspoken critic of the reforms– face off over the proposed overhaul of the judicial system by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing coalition.

Israel’s Judicial System Is the Dream of the American Left David Harsanyi, The Federalist, Mar. 27, 2023 — No constitution. No limiting principles of governance.
