Speaking within hours of the passage of legislation upending the reasonableness standard used by the Israeli Supreme Court to review laws, Hadassah Academic College Professor Doron Shultziner explains features of the protest and counterprotest movements active in Israel since January 2023, what distinguishes them, and how the current movements compare with civic movements of the past 75 years.
