Dozens of right-wing activists and south Tel Aviv residents gathered outside the house of Supreme Court President Miriam Naor in Jerusalem Saturday night to protest what they dubbed “the dictatorship of the Supreme Court.”

Holding signs reading “save Israel from the New [Israel] Fund” and “Justice for south Tel Aviv,” both groups of protesters -- the right-wingers and south Tel Aviv residents -- expressed dissatisfaction with the high court for the second consecutive week.

The right-wing activists railed against what they view as the court's usurping the authority of the other branches of government.

The south Tel Avivis, on the other hand, zeroed in on the High Court's recent ruling regarding African asylum seekers in south Tel Aviv.

In the ruling, the court partially accepted an appeal against the Migrants Law, deciding the state could deport African asylum seekers to a country foreign to them. If they refuse, the government could imprison them for up to 60 days. 

During the rally, the protesters chanted: “The Knesset legislates, Miriam Naor erases,” and “the Supreme Court endangers the country.”

Last Thursday, a golden statue of Supreme Court President Miriam Naor was placed in front of the court in Jerusalem and later removed by the municipality.
