      THis article is not talking at all about the form of judicial reform required or about the proposals tabled by the coalition — it is about journalists and others using a small paragraph from Lapid’s speech, claiming that paragraph proves the Lapid is a hypocrite who wants exactly what the coalition is proposing when, in fact, in the rest of the speech (that they ignore), he is saying exactly the opposite. That is all this article is relating to.
