Israel is teetering on the brink of destruction as Netanyahu presses on with his legislative reforms

Many commentators believe that Israel is now undergoing a political and social upheaval, with the prospect of civil war looming closer on the horizon. President of Israel Isaac Herzog recently warned, "I sense that a catastrophe, an enormous one, is inevitable." Things have gotten dangerously out of hand. "I urge the Israelis; there are enough external concerns; domestic violence of any sort is a red line in our scenario," he says.

Israel is teetering on the brink of destruction as Netanyahu presses on with his legislative reforms

Herzog's premonition of imminent turmoil, or better to say, a civil war, comes as Benjamin Netanyahu, prime minister of the Zionist regime, strives to amend Israel's Supreme Court's jurisdiction and rules to stop potential legal prosecutions involving his corruption allegations. He advocates delegating power from the Supreme Court to the Minister of Justice in an effort to strengthen his authoritarian grip.

To protest what they describe as Netanyahu's "legal coup d'état," more than 100,000 people have rallied across the occupied territories. The Israeli opposition believes the primary motivation behind the proposed amendments by the ruling coalition is to clear Netanyahu of corruption allegations in three instances and pave the way for his ally, Shas party leader Aryeh Deri.

Former Security Minister Benny Gantz blasted Netanyahu during his recent speech: "You are undermining Israeli society from inside, and we will not allow you to do so." He said, "These are crucial days for Israel's democracy." "Dialog is necessary to stop this bill and guarantee that the judiciary is not politicised."

Yair Lapid, the leader of the opposition and a member of Israel's Knesset, has warned that Israel would be destroyed if the proposed judicial reform law is enacted. Lapid, speaking on behalf of the opposition parties, stated that the bill's ratification would strike an irreversible and catastrophic blow to Israel.

Parliamentarian Avigdor Lieberman added to the number of voices sounding the alarm about Israel's future, saying, "They are aiming to avoid a legal crisis by passing legislation that attacks the Supreme Court." Former Shin Bet director Ami Ayalon also addressed a warning to Netanyahu, stating that "there is no possibility to discuss judicial changes" and emphasising a "violent reality." "No one in Israel knows where the crisis will end," he said in an interview with the Zionist regime's Channel 13.

The Knesset member Yifat Shasha-Biton lambasted Netanyahu, saying, "It is within your capacity to halt the hysteria, prevent the rush to civil war, and not destroy Israel."
