Those wanting to change courts are not ‘sons of darkness,’ says Shaked

Continuing her message of a readiness to reform the balance among the courts, the Knesset and the government, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked on Monday rebuffed those who had “designated” her and others who want to change that balance as “sons of darkness” while calling those trying to maintain the status quo “sons of light.”

Shaked, who was speaking to the Israel Bar Association at its annual conference in Eilat, expressed respect and support for the courts. She said that changing the balance might be “subtle,” and that she had no intention of attacking the courts, as some have framed her image.

She even quoted former Supreme Court president Aharon Barak about the law being a field that seeks synthesis and proper balance between different priorities.
