Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar on Thursday rejected criticism from the Left of a High Court decision to uphold the Citizenship and Entry Law on Wednesday, describing the attacks as drastic.

"Court decisions are attributed to political influence whenever [the court] does not operate as the radical left expects it to," Sa'ar said. "Respect for the rule of law and for judicial decisions cannot only be when those decisions are consistent with one's own world view."
