Israeli Justice Minister Yariv Levin (Likud) took aim at the Israeli judiciary Wednesday, vowing that his judicial reform plan will be brought back onto the government's agenda.

Speaking in the Knesset plenum Wednesday afternoon, Levin responded to hearings in the Knesset initiated by MK Gilad Kariv (Labor Party) on the Equality Law, castigating the bill, which Levin warned would expand judicial activism.

"The blood of the victims murdered in terrorist attacks in Gush Katif cries out to us till this very day, after the judicial system - which you want to give even more unlimited tools and power to - turned its back on their blood."

"We have stopped being naïve. We will fix the judicial system. We are not impressed by the threats you make against us."

Levin blasted Yesh Atid, after the party drafted a new judiciary law, despite its intense criticism of the government for attempting to pass judicial reform.

"We are not allowed to do anything so that you don't drop out of negotiations [on judicial reform], but you are allowed to push a law that deals with the core issues [being discussed] at the president's residence. The public now sees who is taking the negotiations seriously and who is behaving as if they own the country and as if they won the elections."
