Threats to Supreme Court test Israel's democracy

Israel Curtailing the Court
FILE - In this May 14, 2014 file photo, Israeli border police officers stand guard as a house is demolished in the Wesk Bank Jewish settlement of Maaleh Rehavam, after Israel's Supreme Court ruled that the land the houses were built on belong to Palestinians. The court, widely seen as a guardian of the country's founding democratic principles, is facing fierce pressure from political hard-liners who are challenging what they see as the court's overreach and liberal slant.
