Matan Peleg, chairman of the If You Will movement that led the protest, said: “High Court judges are openly acting as a political body, seeking to shape Israel’s policy in place of its elected officials. The judges’ approach is that Israel’s laws, including Basic Laws, They are material in the hands of the creator and not a framework that they must respect, preserve and rule on. This situation puts Israeli democracy in real danger. It is enough for a dictatorship of the High Court! “Peleg announced:” If the residents of Rehavia do not sleep – so will the residents of Tzahala. Want to sleep quietly ?! “Make sure that the honorable president resigns immediately.”
The South Tel Aviv Struggle Headquarters said: “The High Court repeatedly chooses to deny the most basic civil rights. Now the High Court has decided that the right of protest of Gantz’s traitors outweighs the right of citizens to silence, just as in the past the High Court “Citizens’ right to security. Tonight we are challenging the law enforcement systems and coming to a protest party in front of the Supreme Court president’s house. If freedom of protest is a top value and if there is no selective enforcement, the police will not evacuate us a minute before evacuating Balfour protesters. Let’s see them.”
