The Israeli government is wrong in rejecting the European Union expressing concerns regarding the judicial overhaul considering that it has problematic aspects that need to fixed, preferably through a consensual comprise. The intention of Brussels is pure, they care about Israeli liberal democracy and any patriotic Israeli or friend of Israel certainly ought to welcome that. Yes, Brussel’s policies towards Judea and Samaria are lamentable but also legitimate in the sense that they pertain to disputed land. But expressing concern as to a perceived threat against liberal democracy, that goes to the core of the common values between the State of Israel and the European Union. Claiming otherwise is outright bizarre.
