Israel's Supreme Court has frozen implementation of a law legalizing dozens of Jewish settlements built on private Palestinian land, which the U.N. labeled a "thick red line".The decision was condemned by right-wing Israeli politicians who accused the judiciary of overruling the will of Israel's Parliament.Court documents seen by AFP Friday show Judge Neal Hendel Thursday issued an open-ended restraining order suspending a bill passed by Parliament that would retroactively legalize a number of outposts across the occupied West Bank.The act, known as the "legalization law," was passed in February and brought immediate condemnation from around the world.Mandelblit had suggested the bill would likely be struck down by the courts from when it was first proposed.
