Israel is in the midst of an internal crisis. The government is introducing a controversial bill to reduce the power of the Supreme Court.

This is happening because, over the last 25 years the Israeli Supreme Court has acquired power beyond those of the courts in other Western democracies.

Jay Shapiro thinks that redueing the power of the Supreme court should be an agreed upon move that will be promoted regardless of the compromise on other reforms in the judicial system.
