MK Estherina Tartman (Israel Beiteinu) proposed a bill on Wednesday afternoon, which would protect Knesset laws from being revoked by the High Court of Justice, Channel One News reported. Tartman's bill followed Tuesday's High Court ruling that overturned the so-called "intifadah law". The "intifadah law" allows Palestinians who suffered material loss in "non-war" army operations carried out by IDF troops to press charges against Israel. The High Court's ruling was hailed by Arab MK's and by leftwing political party Meretz as the "last protector of Justice," but was highly criticized by members of Kadima and Likud as an example of the court's contempt for Knesset legislation.
