Netanyahu to May: Palestinians must accept Jewish state
Israel: Controversial legislation sparks internal conflictAs the Knesset reviews a number of controversial legislation proposals, Israel’s ‘gatekeepers’ respond to the pressures and criticisms: “If people claim you’re both right wing and left wing, then you must be on the right path.”
As the Knesset reconvened for the Winter Assembly, the Israeli public was exposed to a number of controversial legislation proposals.
A survey published by Israeli research institute Midgam revealed that the vast majority of Israelis is opposed to the French Law, which will prohibit the investigation of an incumbent prime minister. According to Likud MK Dudi Amsalem, the legislation is aimed to prevent chaos in the country.
Before starting his position as the Head of the Israel Police, Roni Alsheikh was criticized by the left as a right-wing settler. After Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s investigations began, the right criticized him. According to Alsheikh: “If people claim you’re both right wing and left wing, then you must be on the right path.”
Lately, Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit came out against the Likud legislation proposals. Mandelblit criticized the French Law as well as the Recommendation Law, which will forbid the police from recommending indictments at the end of investigations. Mandelblit clarified that he will do everything to protect the law enforcement system.
"We will not deviate from our path,” Mandelblit stated. “Our path is a path of evidence, a path of truth, the gatekeepers are a central and important element and I am part of this system.”
