MK Nahman Shai (Kadima) said Wednesday that the Knesset is in the middle of a fight over its democratic foundations. "A fight to protect the central, critical institutions of Israeli democracy," he said.
"Prime Minister [Binyamin] Netanyahu and coalition Members of Knesset are attempting to silence public debate and to weaken the court system and social and civic organizations," he continued, "This is an important fight being fought in other committees of the Knesset - the Constitution, Law, Economics, State Control Committees - to ensure that Israel retains its character and the democratic tools at its disposal."
