JERUSALEM (AP) — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu put his contentious judicial overhaul plan on hold this week, but he has vowed to pass the package through parliament “one way or another.” However, he may have a hard time keeping that promise. While Netanyahu has the parliamentary majority to push through his program, this week’s about-face has left him weakened and coming up against a wall of opposition he has never before faced in a three-decade political career.

With Netanyahu’s popularity hit hard by the protests, it could be difficult for him to push forward.
