At the beginning of the cabinet meeting, the ministers referred to the hearing at the High Court that will be held tomorrow and will discuss the petitions seeking to invalidate the amendment dealing with the removal of the prime minister due to incapacity, only for reasons of physical or mental incapacity.
Environmental Protection Minister Idit Silman told reporters: "Tomorrow there will be a hearing at the High Court regarding whether to abolish Israeli democracy. Judges will sit and decide whether to throw away two and a half million votes that were chosen and in the end elect the current government. The question is whether you call that democracy?."
Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi also commented on the debate that will be held tomorrow and said that "the government and the Knesset have respected the decisions of the High Court throughout the years, and the High Court has respected democracy and the basic laws. What the High Court is going to do, say it is going to do, I very much hope not so. No, that is to say - not who has the last word in the State of Israel, but who has the first word. Do the citizens have the right to choose their prime minister or not? and that thing, we are not ready to accept."
The minister responded to the harassment of Yom Kippur prayers in Dizengoff Square by left-wing activists, "What happened in Dizengoff is very serious, it hurts. It hurts that this thing is happening and it is worse that Gantz and Barbivai and Lapid and the whole gang are chained by the hands, in the handcuffs of a negligible minority, marginalized in society, that the society in Israel as a whole denounces".
"To come to the State of the Jews and pull on the Jews 'tallit on the night of Yom Kippur, to expel them from the public space from prayers, is something that has never happened. The founders of the nation, the founders of the State of Israel, turn over in their graves when they see what is happening in the first Hebrew city - Tel Aviv."
He also referred to Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir's planned prayer this coming Thursday: "I shout my protest here in front of you and everywhere. I think that everyone protests their protest and their cry in their own way. But this is a consensus among the people of Israel."
The minister also referred to his planned trip to Saudi Arabia and said: "Soon an Israeli passport will be able to enter Saudi Arabia when the peace agreement in Gaza is signed. The visit is an important visit, we have been working on it for months, and we received the visa a few weeks ago, it will be an interesting visit, in Saudi Arabia with the four species on the Sukkot holiday, we will promote peace, prosperity for the benefit of the citizens of Israel and for the benefit of the entire region."
