There is no, and cannot be, any situation in which we don't respect the law and the judiciary. It is unacceptable to attack the courts; criticism is allowed, but attacks are not. It shakes the basis of our democracy.
Every opinion must be suffered. One must listen to what may be rousing, annoying, even shocking, but it must be done honestly, fairly and with equanimity, respecting the rights of every Member of the Knesset and each faction, guarding the minority in the face of the predatory majority.
A friendship between Germany and Israel didn't always seem natural.
It's preferable for the Palestinians to become citizens of the state than for us to divide the country.
No nation is immune to anti-Semitism and xenophobia.
