In Jerusalem, protestors gathered outside Netanyahu’s residence broke through police barricades

Thousands of Israelis in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Beersheba and other cities turned out to protest late Sunday against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to sack his defense minister over opposition to a controversial judicial reform. 

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant
, a lawmaker from Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party, broke ranks on Saturday by publicly urging Netanyahu to suspend the legislation. 

In Jerusalem, protesters gathered under the prime minister’s residence on Gaza Street, breaking past barriers and barricades set up to prevent them from reaching his home. Thousands left their homes as police, clearly unprepared for the masses, attempted to keep order. Later, the protesters marched to the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, after law enforcement managed to separate the demonstrators.

The major Ayalon traffic artery in Tel Aviv was blocked to traffic by a thousands-strong crowd, with more people arriving as time passed. The highway was transformed into a sea of blue-and-white Israeli flags by protesters, who started a large bonfire in the middle of the road.

Another protest was held outside the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) headquarters in Tel Aviv. 

National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir said he was headed to the police headquarters in Jerusalem to hold an assessment of the situation “following the serious events tonight.”

    Netanyahu was totally justified in his firing of the Defense Minister. The Defense Minister could hold his tongue until the proper time, when PM Netanyahu had returned from his foreign trip! Loose tongues sink ships!

  2. Gallant deserved to be fired; he could not hold his tongue until PM Netanyahu returned to Israel. Did he do this to incite a riot and ruin Israel? There is evidently a deep state in Israel as in USA. Loose lips sink ships.

    What do you think Geri? I’m thinking that perhaps the Jews are seeking a man to solved the problem, that is ANTICHRIST.

    1. I think so, but I also believe that Israel has Covid Psychosis like no other country. That is because of the contract Bibi made with Pfizer – it has been a Mengele-like experiment and it breaks my heart as a Jew.

        You know I’m confuse because Bibi is a Jew and he allowed Pfizer to jabbed his people, the Jews. Beyond my mind. I’ve wonder, did Bibi get jabbed? I don’t think so. Bibi seems a good guy and he cares for his country, but again, he sided with Pfizer. I sometime wonder myself is Bibi is a Globalist or not? I do know that there are million of Jews in Israel believe in God/Jesus, but majority of them don’t. I have a feeling that Jews are seeking a leader to calm the Israel, that is Antichrist, I could be wrong. I’ve heard that George Soros was behind the door caused the civil war in Israel. See? George Soros is a Jew. Good Jews vs Bad Jews.
