Anti-Democratic Hypocrisy of The Israeli Judicial

A country's High Court or Supreme Court is supposed to make decisions based on the laws voted in by the democratically elected members of parliament. They are not supposed to be playing god. The judges are not supposed to be political, nor rule according to their personal ideologies. 

Tell that to the judges on Israel's High Court. They unabashedly say that they judge according to their moral compass, which davka isn't very moral.

Israel's Supreme/High Court Judges claim to be strengthening democracy in Israel.  But democracy is the rule of the people, not the rule of the self-appointed, self-perpetuating elite.

Members of Knesset are voted in on lists, so that the political opinions/ideologies/priorities of Israelis are preserved. That is very much the epitome of democracy as the rule of the people. When these judges overrule the democratically voted laws, because they don't like them, that is the the exact opposite of democracy.

Something must be done to "delete" the court from the Israeli governmental system. Yes, I know. Then the court will declare the new law "immoral." Let them move to Zimbabwe or some similar country.
