Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told Channel 4 News in the UK that Israel is entering a civil war after the government’s first judicial overhaul bill passed today.
“It is a serious threat. This has never happened before. We are now entering a civil war – civil disobedience with all possible ramifications on the stability of the state and the ability of the government to function, on the obedience of a large part of the Israeli population to a government that is perceived by a large part of the population as illegitimate. »
“The government has decided to threaten the foundations of Israeli democracy, and that is not something we can accept or tolerate,” Olmert said.
