Ben-Ari Stands by Supreme Court Comments

MK Michael Ben-Ari (Ichud Leumi) said Wednesday that he stands by criticism of the Supreme Court despite facing a complaint from the Ometz watchdog group. “Joubran, Grunis, and Beinisch really are a junta,” he declared. The court “elects itself, and does great harm to democracy,” he accused.

“I stand behind what I said, and I am determined to turn the court into a Jewish, Zionist, democratic court,” he concluded.
