Following weeks of being told by everyone who has access to a microphone or a newspaper column that Daniel Friedman, our Minister of Justice, is an evil man who is doing his best to drag us out of the club of democracies and into the ranks of kleptocracies or some such, suddenly we hear that there are responsible figures, including two law professors who have both served in the past as ministers, who are publicly defending him. Huh. Who'd have thought! How confusing.
Haaretz published an interesting op-ed touching upon the same issue from a very different direction, but so far I haven't found it on their English website. I'll keep looking and come back to this later.
