In 1803 Justice John Marshall’s decision in “Marbury vs. Madison” case established that the Supreme Court in the United States could review and reject laws as unconstitutional. Israel doesn’t have a formal constitution, but is has “Basic Laws.” The Israeli Supreme Court has used these Basic Laws to overturn Knesset legislation contrary to them. Professor Lustick with analyze whether Israel will follow the American example of checks and balances and why there is so much talk of “civil war.”
