Herzog: Gov’t criticism of High Court only weakens this fundamental tool defending Israel’s good name

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) launched an attack against the coalition on Monday after members of the government leveled harsh criticism against the High Court of Justice, asserting that the court is a “fundamental tool” in the fight against BDS. “When I say we have an independent court that is not afraid of the government or of public opinion and defends human rights – it’s a very

fundamental tool in public discussion and in the decision-making process regarding the BDS movement,” Herzog said at Ynet and Yedioth Ahronoth’s anti-BDS conference in Jerusalem. “That is why the attack on the High Court yesterday by the prime minister and the ranks below him only serves to weaken one of the main institutions defending Israel’s good name,” Herzog added.
