The keynote speaker at the demonstration was Professor Alan Dershowitz, who told Israel Hayom that "I do not support the legal reform, but even if it passes, Israel will still be a democracy. The court will be less powerful, but it will still be a democracy. Which country has five elections in four years? The anti-Netanyahu demonstrators don't understand what they're talking about."
