Today has been declared a “Day of Disruption” Is Israel with protestors blocking roads and airport routes.
The movement is in protest to a new reasonableness standard bill. It passed in its first reading on Monday night. The bill hands more power to politicians by preventing courts from reviewing legislation according to the “reasonableness standard.” Currently, courts can review decisions by elected officials according to this standard but if this bill becomes law, they would no longer be able to do this.
Protestors came with signs that said “Welcome to Gilead” and “Blessed be the fruit” in reference to the book The Handmaid’s Tale.
Is this a precursor to a revolution or a protest that the government will be able to weather?
