Israel’s Democracy Is Threatened From Within As Never Before, Caroline Glick

Quote: “Since 1997, the government’s power to select the attorney-general is limited to choosing between the two or three candidates who were selected and pre-approved by the justices [of the Supreme Court]. The post-Hebron-Bar-On system has rendered the attorney-general effectively subordinate to the court, rather than to the government…if Netanyahu is forced from office, Israeli democracy will be critically, and possibly irreparably, debilitated.”

CS Commentary: A good simple explanation, but the author is wrong that the blockchain is incorruptible.

This may change as existing blockchains are modified and/or new Cryptocurrencies are developed.

Quotes of the Month:

“One day we shall stand before the judgment of God and He has told us in advance what one of the questions will be on that great day of examination. Jesus made it clear that what we shall have to answer for is the way in which we have treated our neighbors. The horror of discrimination will never be fully realized until we remember the sobering words of our Lord; ‘As you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.’” ― Billy Graham
