Professor Kalir Pens Op-Ed on The Imminent Danger to Israeli Democracy

On March 3, the Plain Dealer published Doron Kalir’s op-ed, titled, “Effort to muzzle judiciary poses imminent threat to Israel’s democracy.” The current Israeli Government, led by P.M. Netanyahu, is seeking to upend the current system of separation of powers and eliminate the independence of Israel’s judiciary. In response, a civil protest like never before has engulfed Israeli, with hundreds of thousands taking to the streets for months. The Op-Ed explains the scope of some of the most radical proposals — called by their proponents, in true Orwellian fashion, “judicial reform” — and then explains why they are so dangerous to Israel’s current, and very delicate, structure of government.
