Israeli minister calls for strengthening “Israel’s Jewish nature”
NAZARETH, (PIC)– Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked called for strengthening “Israel’s Jewish nature” via the legal system, Yediot Ahranot Hebrew newspaper reported Wednesday. Shaked claims it is a matter of great substance to the state and its laws, advocating for a more rigid separation of powers. “When we wish to put Israel through advanced democratization processes, we must simultaneously deepen its Jewish identity,” Shaked wrote, “These identities are not contradictory. On the contrary: I believe they reinforce one another. I believe the more Jewish a state we are, the more democratic a state we will be, and that the more democratic a state we are, the more Jewish a state we will be,” according to her statements. “The path of the train of Israeli justice (system) must keep in mind the states’ Jewish nature,” the newspaper quoted her as saying.
