Netanyahu softens judicial overhaul but showdown looms

STORY: Facing mounting mass protests inside of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday said he would soften his controversial judicial overhaul plan. But the changes failed to satisfy an opposition that has organized a campaign against the government over the proposed reforms.The plan would give the government more control of the appointment of judges and constrain the Supreme Court’s ability to check the legislature or the executive.Critics say the proposed overhaul would undermine the Supreme Court as an independent branch of government and erode the nation’s democracy.
