Resumen

Recientemente, el Tribunal Israelí revisó peticiones para invalidar una enmienda a una Ley Básica, cuestionando si puede anular leyes básicas que entren en conflicto con los principios fundamentales de Israel, en particular su identidad como estado judío y democrático. El Tribunal confirmó su poder para hacerlo e invalidó la enmienda. Esta decisión histórica, la más significativa desde 1995, refuerza a Israel como una democracia constitucional con valores "supraconstitucionales". El poder judicial tiene el deber de hacer cumplir estos valores anulando leyes básicas que contradigan los principios fundamentales del estado. El artículo concluye que estas acciones son esenciales para mantener la democracia constitucional de Israel.
