    Quote: “The Israeli court system does not look like any other court system in the world,” says Arne Malmgren, a Swedish lawyer who has worked as legal observer inside Israeli military courts during trials of Palestinian children. “Israeli military staff, the judge, the prosecutor, the interpreter — they are all in military uniform. There are plenty of soldiers with weapons inside the courtroom.”

    Yes, this is military court, and not “The Israeli court system”. Big difference here.
