This story may not be as “sexy” to read as other stories, but it is probably more important to the future of Israel’s success than any other story out there today. There is a reason that the members of the settlement movement are prosecuted so harshly and so unjustly. There is a reason why arab terrorists are released while good Jews rot in Jail, and it has everything to do with the way the Supreme Court in Israel thrives on nepotism and cronyism.
Friedman is a great man who is trying to fight the injustice system in Israel. He is putting his popularity second to his love of Israel and his intense desire for Israel to adopt truly democratic reforms—transforming the country from an infant run by a small select secular leftist elite who decide cases more on political and religious affiliation than on merit, to a mature country with the possibility of equity and justice for all citizens.
Let’s just look at who hates Friedman most in order to validate what I am saying. His number one detractor is supreme court “justice” and president of the supreme court, Dorit Beinisch.
She is a perfect example of a member of the “elite” class of politicians who are promoted because they know “where the bodies are buried.” She made her reputation with deception and deceit.
She is an unqualified crony of Barak who was implicated in a very bad scandal to frame right-wing groups and indict innocent persons in order to cover up Rabin’s assassination. Since then, she has been on a one-woman crusade to destroy the settlement movement, Israel, and anything vaguely religious. She is consumed by power for power's sake. If anyone thought, for a moment, she would help bring legitimacy to the Supreme Court, let your fantasies die now.
She supported Arabs every time, helped destroy our claim to the Temple Mount, made the ruling that two women can be the parents of a child, allowed the sale of pork in Israel, and allowed the practice of holding indefinitely in a maximum security prisons innocent young girls (ages 14 & 16) from Hevron, accused of throwing rocks.
Before our main article, about Friedman, here is a “refresher” article that remind us all of the now-famous but forgotten "Raviv-Beinish" protocols—for which she took the hit for her higher-ups and gained the allegiance of men even more evil than she is to attain the position for which she aspired.
Here's the story that explains it all:
Court authorizes the publication of the "secret document" on IBA journalist & former GSS agent Raviv
May Hashm save us all from the Dorit Beinisch monster and those like her! May Friedman prevail in his quest for a fair and just Israeli Supreme Court!

Justice minister slammed over reforms
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann came under a barrage of criticism Wednesday after announcing a set of reforms apparently aimed at increasing the governments' influence on judicial appointments.
The justice minister suggested far-reaching changes to the way judges and court presidents are appointed, sparking angry responses from both Knesset and the justice establishment.
One proposal concerns alterations to the composition of the Judges Election Committee, which is responsible for appointing judges to the Supreme Court. The committee is presently made up of nine members: The justice minister, an additional minister representing the Justice Ministry, the Supreme Court president, two Supreme Court judges representing the judiciary, two lawyers elected by the Israel Bar Association and two MKs, traditionally from the coalition and the opposition.
According to Friedmann's proposal, distributed to MKs and members of the judiciary as a formal memorandum, the Supreme Court would lose one of its seats in the committee, and three new seats would be created. Two of the new members would be a retired judge and an academic, appointed by the government, while the third would be an academic nominated by the Council of University Presidents, itself indirectly appointed by the government. Thus, with five government appointments and heavy influence over a sixth, the government would be assured a clear majority.
A second reform proposed by Friedmann in a separate memorandum concerns the appointment of court presidents. Presidents are currently jointly appointed by Friedmann and the Supreme Court president. Friedmann now suggests that the candidates would be allocated by a new committee of five judges. He also announced his intention to cancel the six-month "temporary appointment period", during which new appointees to the High Court are monitored by their senior colleagues.
While Friedmann himself termed the move a "democratization of the Supreme Court", the proposal was severely criticism.
Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch said that she had learned about the proposed reforms from the media. "These changes would bring about a politicization of the judiciary", Beinisch warned.
Knesset Interior Affairs Committee Chairman Ophir Paz-Pines called upon the justice minister to resign. "The day when politicians appoint Supreme Court judges will be the end of Israeli democracy," Paz-Pines said.
The judges' representative, Varda Elshayach, sent an urgent letter of protest to the minister.
"Your proposed method for the appointment of court presidents would have candidates running 'election campaigns' rather than concentrating on judicial work", wrote Elshayach.
