Galant appealed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a compromise. He also asked the opposition parties to stop the armed forces’ strikes and protests against the government.
“The division in the nation has penetrated deep into the ranks of the armed forces and security forces – a clear and serious threat to Israel’s security. I will not allow that,” Minister “JP” was quoted as saying.
“I have risked my life for Israel and will continue to risk it,” Minister Gallant said. He said threats to the Israeli state continue to grow as Iran moves closer to obtaining nuclear weapons and conflicts with Palestine escalate.

The minister insisted that while the Israeli armed forces are “wonderful”, “something has broken in them in recent weeks” due to the planned reform of the judiciary. The rift that divides society has not spared the army, he said, weakening its fighting capacity.
“Defense Minister Yoav Galant has taken bold and necessary steps for the defense of the State of Israel,” said opposition leader Yair Labit. Former Prime Minister “JP” quoted former Prime Minister “JP” as saying, “Reformation of the Judiciary is highly detrimental to national security and it is his duty and responsibility to prevent a dangerous deterioration of the situation.”
The government, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, wants to implement reforms in the judiciary. Increased government control over the election process of Supreme Court judges and the ability to overturn Supreme Court judgments by a 61-vote majority in the 120-member parliament. The head of the Israeli government said on Thursday that he would “do whatever it takes” to put aside all other matters to resolve the conflict between opponents of reform and the government.
The plans are causing Israel to face its biggest wave of opposition in years. Tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of cities on Thursday as a result of deep divisions in Israeli society. Many Israeli reservists declare that they will not work if the reform is implemented.
