Bibi Backs Down

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is standing down from legislation that marked massive protests and upheaval. He had been seeking to overhaul the nation’s court system in a way that gave his office more power but now he won’t.

“When it is possible to prevent a civil war through dialogue, I, as the prime minister, will take the time for dialogue,” said Mr. Netanyahu in an address to the nation on Monday evening.

The power grab was set for a vote this week but protestors not only took to the streets, they also organized labor strikes. They can stand down for now but the Prime Minister says he will announce more judicial reforms at the end of April.
