The Supreme Court and democracy

Former Justice Minister Dan Meridor made an incredible statement today (Ret. justice Cheshin to Friedmann: Quit).

We want a democracy of the type the Supreme Court has designed

That is democracy? Unelected leftist judges basically making the laws and deciding how they are enforced is democracy? Meridor seems to have forgotten that the basic task of the judiciary is to interpret the law not create it. Why should unelected judges "design a democracy"? With opinions like Meridor's it is no wonder Israel has a dictatorship of judges.
