It’s Official – It’s Reasonable! Phase One Original Plan Advances

The Knesset plenum on Monday afternoon approved changes to the reasonableness standard, passing the bill with a majority of 64 Knesset members.

Ministers Bezalel Smotrich and Yoav Gallant pushed for a last-minute compromise, despite the harsh opposition by ministers Yariv Levin and Itamar Ben Gvir. They also pushed to delay the legislation for judicial appointments for a period of more than six months.

The attempts to reach a compromise between the coalition and the opposition continued until the last moment, but opposition leader MK Yair Lapid announced that negotiations had failed and blew up the talks.

Considering the opposition’s position, it was decided to continue to advance the bill as originally planned.

The haters and doomsday naysayers of Israel are out in full force today. Hysteria, rage, concern, road blockages, and more protests. It’s over – Israel is doomed! They view the passage of this bill as a terrible day for Israel, the end of democracy in Israel, blah, blah, blah. Joe Biden said the vote is “unfortunate,” but we know all this rhetoric is not the truth. Today is simply an amazing day for Israel and just the beginning of advancing and developing this already great nation. Sometimes we forget that since its founding, and for all Israel has achieved in a short amount of time, Israel is still a very young country. Today’s vote to fix an ailing judicial system puts Israel on track to implement the best practices to run the country that should be in place at this time in the Jewish Nation State’s history. We hope the opposition will get over it somehow! 🙂
