Israel's supreme court makes a mockery of law and order

They ruled that illegal migrants could not be imprisoned for infiltration, and it's angered the residents of south Tel Aviv, which has suffered considerable crime from Etritreans:
Shaul Nissim, a lifelong resident of the Hatikva neighborhood of Tel Aviv, stood in a butcher shop in the shuk and expressed what he said was the fury felt by residents in the wake of the Supreme Court decision on Monday to cancel the anti-infiltration law.

“This is a victory for anarchy; there’s no law and order here anymore. People are going to take the law into their own hands. Maybe that will bring some deterrence,” Nissim said, adding that the over 60,000 African migrants in Israel “don’t care about the law at all.”

Nearby in the shuk, Tashkent native Arthur Kavodov, standing behind the counter at his deli, reacted to the decision with “What’s new? The Supreme Court has always been left-wing and anti-Jewish, and this is just more of the same.” [...]

These sentiments are familiar to anyone who has followed the African migrant issue in south Tel Aviv in recent years. Residents’ reactions to the ruling expressed feelings of abandonment by the state mixed with anger about a neighborhood that no longer feels like home and whose streets no longer feel safe at night.
The sad part aside is that this could lead to unnecessary vigilantism by TA residents who now feel betrayed by the court. This is exactly why the law needs to be overhauled so that the supreme court can't take actions that harm law enforcement.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
