Judge Edmond Levy Was 'Spot of Light in Darkness'


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed his sorrow at Levy's passing, saying "he was straight as a ruler and wasn't afraid of expressing his opinion time and again on controversial issues. The people of Israel, the state of Israel and land of Israel were his top priorities."

However, in eulogizing the judge, former MK Professor Aryeh Eldad, Director of Professors for a Strong Israel, argued Netanyahu has not done justice to the 2012 Levy Report left behind by the judge, which clarified that Judea and Samaria are not "occupied" under international law.
