האם נורתה הממלכתיות?

This may not happen in America, but class was cancelled today since my teacher had to go to milluim. Instead, I went to an interesting dialogue, sponsored by Haaretz, in memory of Rabin's tenth yartzeit. There were a few different parts, the one I went to had two former supreme court justices, one of whom was the head of the supreme court, a hesder rabbi, two proffesors, and a lawyer. The topic was the Supreme Court. Each candidate gave a little speech, then there was a bit of rebuttal, and a few questions and answers from the crowd. I heard before that there were a lot of complaints about this being very left slanted, etc, especially since its sponsored by Haaretz, but I did not feel that at all. The basic debate was how much control the supreme court should have, is it properly structured, and, of course, how the supreme court is handling the Gaze expellees. The two hours given were not nearly enough time to fully discuss anything, but I'm happy I went.
