Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that while he respects the decisions of the High Court of Justice, it is everyone's right to criticize those decisions if they disagree with them.

Netanyahu's comments, made at the cornerstone laying ceremony for the new National Library of Israel in Jerusalem, came a day after Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked was harshly criticized for attacking the court's decision to strike down Netanyahu's natural gas policy.

"There is no body above criticism," Netanyahu said. He added, however, that the conversation about the court's decisions must be "about the issues" and not a personal attack.
