I do have strong childhood memories of Alaska and Hawaii being added as the 49th and 50th states of the United States of America, but I'm pretty sure that the State of Israel isn't among the 50, nor the 51st state. So I just can't comprehend how she could say such an outrageous thing which in essence cancels/denies the independence of the State of Israel. Am I crazy or not? I left the United States to live in Israel in 1970, and although I am still an American Citizen, which means I have an American Passport to facilitate easy travel to see family there, I do not vote in American Elections nor take orders from American Presidents, whether Obama, Clinton, Carter or Trump. And I really can't understand how any self-respecting Israeli official can take orders from America!

Over the decades many Right wing politicians have claimed they would change the law, since the Leftist agenda is self-perpetuating in the so-called Justice branch of the Israeli Governmental system. There's a big basic problem, since the Supreme Court will simply veto any law it doesn't like.
So, until these two things are corrected, things will not get better here in Israel.
- Israel must act as a truly independent country and not take orders from any other!
- Israel must enact a system of "checks and balances" to guarantee that the Courts can't unilaterally overrule decisions of the Knesset and Prime Minister. Two out of three branches should be the decider, not the justices!
