Civil war around the corner: Former Shin Bet chief
In light of mass protests against plans related to judicial amendments, the former head of the Shin Bet says that "Israel" may witness a civil war within weeks.
Former "Shin Bet" Chief Yuval Diskin said on Wednesday that "Israel" could witness a civil war within weeks.
In a protest against the amendments to the occupation's judicial system, Diskin asserted that "this is not a right-wing government, but a government of terror."
His statements come as the occupation is witnessing protests against the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, especially its plans related to judicial amendments.
It is noteworthy that former Israeli occupation Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on February 14th that there is a real threat of civil war breaking out in "Israel."
Bennett said during an interview with Israeli Channel 12 that the occupation's government and the opposition should "take a week off from legislating and protesting and sit down to negotiate the proposed judicial amendments" by Justice Minister Yariv Levin.
This comes after opposition MK Yair Lapid confirmed that "'Israel' is on the brink of the abyss and stands at a decisive moment." The occupation, he added, is "walking toward ruin if the judicial amendments law is passed."
The Israeli occupation's Justice Minister Yariv Levin rolled out a legal reform package that would limit the authority of the High Court of Justice and give the cabinet control over the selection of new judges.
What judicial amendments does Netanyahu want?
Despite weeks of protests from Israeli settlers, the Knesset voted last Tuesday in favor of going through with the judicial reform legislation, which has been criticized as undermining the separation of power within "Israel".
Settlers across "Israel" have been vehemently protesting the legislation under the pretext of it being a threat to "democracy", namely how it increases the authority of politicians over judges.
63 members of the occupation's Knesset, more than the absolute majority of the quorum, voted in favor of the bill during the first reading.
Before passing to its second and third readings in the Knesset, the bill will return to the law committee for further discussion.
The proposed legislation would prevent courts from overturning any amendments made by the government to "Israel's" quasi-constitutional "Basic Laws", in addition to giving more weight to the government in the judge selection committee.
The legislation undermining the judiciary's independence is fundamental to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's administration, which is constituted by a coalition of extremist Zionist parties.
