Moving and Shaking in the Wrong Direction


Israel's leaders, the "movers and shakers" like to say that they model themselves on America. In this very extensive interview with US Court of Appeals Judge Richard Posner, by Ruthie Blum, we read that Israeli jundges are nothing like their American "models."

During his visit here in Israel, Judge Posner has attacked retired Israeli Supreme Court president Aharon Barak's basic premise that a judge should decide cases according to "what's right," personal opinion, rather than law.
