Do we oppose the freedom of speech of rabbis who prohibit the leasing of apartments to Arab citizens? (That is not a boycott, but crass discrimination.)
After hours of debate, the court adjourned. Judgment will be given at some undefined date. Probably there will be a majority and several minority decisions.
Will the court dare to strike out a law of the Knesset? That would demand real courage. I would not be surprised if the majority decide to leave the law as it is, but strike out the words concerning the settlements.
Otherwise, it will be another step towards turning Israel into a state of the settlers, by the settlers and for the settlers.
There are examples for this in history. The eminent British historian Arnold Toynbee -- a favorite of mine -- once composed a list of countries which were taken over by the inhabitants of their border regions, who as a rule are hardier and more fanatical than the spoiled inhabitants of the center. For example, the Prussians, then the inhabitants of a remote border region, took over half of Germany, and then the rest. Savoy, a borderland, created modern Italy.
WHATEVER THE outcome, the decision in the case of "Uri Avnery and Others v. the State of Israel" will be quoted for a long time.
Some satisfaction, at least.
