An Interview with Dr. Yonatan Mendel Following President Rivlin's Recent Speech / "Nine" with Ramzi Hakim, Musawa Channel, 26/10/2017 (Arabic)

Dr. Mendel: There is no doubt that President Rivlin's speech attests to a very big gap between his worldview and the government's actions. This gap may indicate an inevitable clash between the government, as an executive force, and other elements critical of the government, from the Supreme Court, through the media, and up to civil society. In my assessment, there will either be a clash or we will witness a radical change in Israeli democracy.
