"Some would claim that if a decision was adopted by a majority, then by definition it represents a democratic decision. This is a mistake (...) Majority rule is a necessary condition for democracy, but it is an insufficient one. Without curbing the power of the majority, the system may become a tyranny. Such things have happened. A majority that denies individuals their rights, a majority that oppresses the minority living in its midst - is not a democratic administration."
Israeli Supreme Court Chief Justice Miriam Naor, zitiert nach "Ynet-News" (8. Dezember 2016)
