ABSTRACT
The article discusses Israel's constitutional history. Its main focus is on the disagreements, controversies and disputes of Israel's constitution making that prevent it from progressing. Israel's choice of non-decision constitution-making tactic is itself a decision not to decide. The attempt of some political entities to push Israeli society to acknowledge formal constitutional regime has failed. A constitutional framework already exists but ideological disputes have hampered its full development.
