Government agrees to resume fuel supply to Gaza

In its response to a petition to Israel's moonbat 'Supreme Court,' the government agreed to resume supplying fuel to Gaza so that the 'Palestinians' can go back to making rockets and shooting them at Israel's Negev communities. I would argue that if as a result of this decision the 'Palestinians' fire a rocket that kills someone, either the government or the 'Supreme Court' ought to be deemed accessories to murder.
In its response to petitions submitted by two human rights groups to the High Court of Justice protesting the ongoing fuel sanctions against the Gaza Strip, the state announced Sunday that effective immediately, the fuel supply to the Gaza Strip will be restored.

The amount of fuel which Israel will supply henceforth will be in accordance to what was demanded by the High Court - 2.2 million liters per week.

However, even the agreement to renew the fuel supplies did not satisfy the petitioners, who claimed that the above amount was not enough.
Earlier today, Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann criticized the 'Supreme Court' for hearing the case, which was filed by Adalah, an 'Israeli-Arab' 'human rights' organization and Gisha, an 'Israeli' organization that protects freedom of movement freedom to murder Jews for Arabs. Here's Friedmann:
Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann remarked at the weekly Sunday morning cabinet meeting today that he isn’t sure whether it is easier to deal with international pressure or Israel’s High Court of Justice.
The JPost translated his remarks differently:
"Sometimes I don't know if Israel fares better in an international forum or in the High Court of Justice," Friedmann said at the weekly cabinet meeting.
But here's the key fact in this whole story, which is somehow being lost on the media:
At no time was Gaza completely without electricity, despite public relations spin by Hamas terrorists who deliberately withheld power from areas in which media were covering news stories. Moreover, cooking gas and diesel deliveries were resumed last Tuesday.
There might be a silver lining in this cloud: For months, Friedmann has been trying to force the court to accept the concepts of standing and justiciability that are the norm in the courts of just about every country in the western world. Maybe this decision will be the impetus for the sane majority to start ignoring the shrill cries of the Supreme Court and the former justices who are being sent to do its dirty work in the political arena.

Carl,

"Maybe this decision will be the impetus for the sane majority to stop ignoring the shrill cries of the Supreme Court and the former justices who are being sent to do its dirty work in the political arena."

I think you meant 'start ignoring' rather than 'stop ignoring'

Israel's Supreme Court is a danger to the country's national security by substituting itself for the judgments of Israel's professional military and police.

Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann not only wants to end this overbearing judicial activism, he wants to curb judicial review by giving the Knesset the power to overrule ill-advised Israel Supreme Court decisions.

To this the courts' justices are opposed because they wield unlimited power and the last thing they want to do is give up exercising it.

There's something wrong with the country's political environment when an Israeli government is enjoined by its highest court from pursuing legitimate national security and foreign policy goals at the behest of a few extremist left-wing advocacy groups who do not represent the views of the vast majority of Israel's population.

Carl,

Apparently there are already reasons to deem the Supreme Court accessory to murder:

Courting security

Naftali,

You're right. Fixing that.
