Hotovely: High Court Eliminating Jewish Values


Deputy Transportation Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud Beytenu) on Thursday attacked the High Court which, she said, removes Jewish values from Israel’s definition as a “Jewish and democratic” state.

Speaking at a conference which dealt with Judaism and democracy, Hotovely said, "The High Court is eliminating the Jewish values ​​of the country in favor of universal values​​. The use Jewish law in rulings is marginal - according to studies, only nine percent of the court’s rulings are based on Jewish law.”
