If it were possible to get an answer from God, I would ask him at this time, between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, what sin did we commit to deserve such a heavy punishment?
Several thousand protesters showed up on Sunday for a weekly anti-Netanyahu demonstration near the prime minister’s official residence in Jerusalem, which in its 13th week drew a smaller crowd than usual, as Israel in under a nationwide coronavirus lockdown.
Israel is the only country in the world to impose a second nationwide lockdown. On Erev Rosh Hashanah, the eve of the Jewish New Year, Israelis are again being placed under harsh restrictions that will disrupt their livelihood, their way of life and their mental health.
Thousands have been gathering near the prime minister’s residence in Jerusalem every week, slamming the government for mismanagement of the COVID-19 crisis and Netanyahu for preoccupation with his ongoing trial in three criminal cases.
Demonstrations are also taking place near Netanyahu’s private residence in Caesarea and at major intersections and bridges across the country.

Netanyahu is pursuing two tracks simultaneously. The first is that of the attorney general. It involves ceaselessly attacking Avichai Mendelblit to get him to break and resign, thereby enabling Netanyahu to appoint an attorney general after his own heart who will cancel his trial due to “lack of public interest.”
The second track is the general lockdown he intends to impose later this month to stop the demonstrations outside his official residence on Jerusalem’s Balfour Street.
Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit is holding consultations on Wednesday whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be disqualified from serving as premier, because of what Mendelblit sees as Netanyahu’s use of the office for his personal benefit as a defendant in three corruption cases.
Die Polizei nahm 13 Menschen fest. Zwei Polizisten wurden offiziellen Angaben zufolge verletzt, als Demonstranten eine Absperrung durchbrachen. Netanyahu bezeichnet die Protestierenden als Linke und Anarchisten. Seit Monaten gehen sie gegen den wegen Korruption angeklagten Ministerpräsidenten auf die Straße.

Thousands of Israelis gathered on Saturday evening outside the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s official residence in Jerusalem and at other locations around the country for the 11th consecutive week, calling on the prime minister to resign in light of his ongoing corruption trial
When May Lavie heard Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech about Moses and Pharaoh in 2015, she immediately understood that it was a song waiting to be written.
Rund drei Monate nach ihrem Beginn weiten sich die Proteste gegen Israels rechtskonservativen Regierungschef Benjamin Netanyahu von Woche zu Woche aus. Die größte Demonstration fand gestern Abend vor Netanyahus Amtssitz in Jerusalem statt.
About 20,000 protesters are gathered outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s official residence in Jerusalem Saturday evening for the tenth week in a row, calling for his resignation, as tensions with police run high following documented incidents of police violence at last week’s protest.

Hundreds of Israelis marched in protest in Tel Aviv and Haifa on Thursday, calling on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to resign.
A wave of anti-Netanyahu protests has swept Israel over the summer, with the largest weekly demonstration taking place every Saturday night near the prime minister’s official residence in Jerusalem.
Outside Netanyahu’s fanatic base, no one in his right mind believes Netanyahu anyway. A poll released on Sunday by Channel 13 revealed that 50 percent of the Israeli public assumes that Netanyahu’s top priority in running the country is to is avoid his upcoming criminal trial, currently slated to start in January. Only 18 percent believe that Netanyahu’s actions stem from love of country and another 14 percent cite ideological differences with the center-left.
Thousands of Israelis protested outside the prime minister’s official residence Saturday as summer-long demonstrations against Benjamin Netanyahu maintained their momentum.
Earlier in the evening, about 1,000 protesters marched from the Chords Bridge near the entrance to the city toward Balfour Street, where the residence is located, despite not receiving a permit for the march from the police.
Meanwhile, demonstrators from the „Black Flag“ movement, who call to defend Israel’s democracy from what they perceive as Netanyahu’s government attacks against it, have already gathered at some 300 intersections, junctions and bridges across Israel.
Another thousand protested near the prime minister’s private home in Caesarea.
The force added that it suggested a number of alternative paths, but the organizers rejected all of those.
„You cannot stop the protests,“ the organizers retorted. „It is your role to protect us, it is ours to protect a country that is collapsing,“ they added.

“An unprecedented campaign of incitement that includes calls for violence and even my murder and that of my family,” wrote Netanyahu. Unprecedented? After all, he was elected on the bloody back of a prime minister who was murdered, as the result of the savage incitement of which he was one of its main leaders. Incited and inflamed right-wingers stood every Friday, on the eve of the Sabbath, across from the entrance to the Rabins’ home in Ramat Aviv – and wished them that they end up like “Mussolini and his concubine” – meaning hanging upside down, with their feet up. That is less serious than three balloons in the shape of the male sexual organ? Or even a deviant post – that turns out was posted a year and a half ago, whose author was interrogated hours before Netanyahu’s execrable letter was sent.

Thousands of Israelis rallied again on Saturday evening in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv amid a massive anti-government movement calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
10,000 protesters gathered on Saturday outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s official residence, and thousands more across the country in demonstrations against the government for the fourth week in a row.
Critics routinely lambaste the prime minister’s corruption and incitement, but mostly ignore his compulsive lying and flights of farcical fantasy
Hundreds of people remained in the area well after midnight, ignoring calls by police to leave.
Anti-riot forces moved into the area and began clearing out people. As of early Sunday morning, most of the remaining protesters appeared to be leaving peacefully, but police were seen dragging some activists away.
“We’re supporting and joining our sisters and brothers in Israel who stand up for Israeli democracy.”
The protest and march were approved by the Israel Police, which is present in large forces and says it will allow protest for all but „will not tolerate any disturbances of the public order.”

Defense Minister Benny Gantz on Wednesday demanded the arrest of perpetrators of violent attacks on demonstrators calling for the ouster of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
„They must be caught and brought to justice, the protest will not be silenced as long as we are here,“ he said.
According to the demonstrators, police ignored their calls for help and, only later arriving at the scene to break up the clashes. The attackers, whose identity is unknown and who pretended they are part of the anti-government protest, managed to escape the scene.
Around 1,000 protesters took to the streets of Tel Aviv Tuesday night in an anti-Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rally, blocking Ayalon Highway north, Hebrew media reported.
Large forces of Israel Police arrived to disperse the crowd and reopen the highway, in what erupted into clashes between authorities and the demonstrators.
This shows that the youth revolution isn’t against Netanyahu alone; it’s a kind of no-confidence vote in Israel’s corrupt democratic system. And it’s happening because most of the people ruling over us don’t actually represent the public. Instead, it turns out that they made it into the Knesset through all kinds of tricks and for the sake of ulterior motives.
At exactly 12:30 A.M. the order was given for the police to move into action. It was issued by the commander of Jerusalem’s Moriah district police department, which is responsible for an area of the city that includes the site of the regular demonstrations opposite the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s official residence. The consequences of the order were rather dramatic.
Thousands of protesters held anti-government demonstrations on Saturday in Jerusalem in front of the Prime Minister’s Residence, in Caesarea in front of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s private home, and at some 250 intersections throughout the country.
In Jerusalem, over five thousand protesters gathered on Balfour Street, across from Netanyahu’s official residence. A group of some 20 right-wing activists participated in a counter-protesting nearby.

The protests were not organized by a single, centralized organization, but were made up of a variety of different groups and young people who are unaffiliated with any particular movement.
Over a thousand protesters are demonstrating Saturday evening outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyhau’s official residence in Jerusalem, calling for his resignation over his corruption charges for the fourth time this week.
Police have closed the central thoroughway of Jaffa street to traffic and erected barriers to prevent protesters from nearing Netanyahu’s residence.
Several organizations representing self-employed Israelis have said they will join the protest of the so-called Black Flag movement in Tel Aviv’s Charles Clore Park on Saturday, after police refused to let them demonstrate at a different location, citing coronavirus restrictions.
The Black Flag protests first gained recognition in March, when a motorcade of hundreds of cars made its way to Jerusalem to protest anti-democratic measures to combat the coronavirus, including the approval of civilians’ phone tracking by the Shin Bet security service.

Thousands of Israelis protested outside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence in Jerusalem on Tuesday (July 14), demanding his resignation over what they say has been an inept government response to the coronavirus crisis as well as his corruption trial.
Israeli police have clashed with protesters outside Benjamin Netanyahu’s house, as the embattled prime minister faces heightened criticism for alleged corruption and his government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis.
Jerusalem municipal officials, accompanied by police, arrived outside the premier’s residence and began to dismantle tents of a protest camp that had been erected weeks ago by people calling for Netanyahu to resign.

Around 2,000 protesters arrived at the rally under the moniker “Bastille Day,” named after the July 14th French National Day which commemorates the storming of a grand fortress — an event that launched the French Revolution in 1789.
Netanyahu has been drawing criticism not only for his alleged misconduct in the three corruption cases against him, but also for his attacks on the attorney general, the media, law enforcement and the judiciary in his arguments that the charges against him are baseless.
Protesters have also demanded further investigation into allegations of impropriety in the purchase of submarines from Germany.
For the second consecutive day, police and city inspector cleared out a protest encampment across the street from the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem. Law enforcement confiscated equipment and clashed with protesters; two of whom were wounded and taken to the hospital.
“I just got up, made a sign and went out to the street and protested,” he explained. “Every Saturday, just a friend [and I were] on the street corner.”
Ben Shitrit happens to be a cousin of Public Security Minister Amir Ohana, one of Netanyahu’s staunchest allies and defenders. He says he hasn’t spoken to his cousin, whom he calls a “sycophant” and a “poodle,” in years.
We believe in a Jewish and democratic Israel. We feel no obligation to defend Netanyahu’s pathological viciousness, monumentally stupid annexation, incitement and self-enrichment
Some are veteran protesters, some are newcomers, but all of them agree that the younger generation – that they say takes no interest in politics – must be enlisted to bring about change
The organizers said that over the course of the week, they will establish a protest tent on Tel Aviv’s Rothschild Boulevard – recalling the tent city that had been erected there during the social protests of 2012.
Additional protests are taking place at some 70 intersections throughout the country. Dozens of protesters are present at each junction, holding signs reading „Netanyahu is corrupt and corrupts,“ „Investigation now“ (referring to the so-called submarine affair), „The defendent needs to go home,“ and other slogans.
Protests organized by the Black Flags movement against corruption broke out across Israel late Saturday, with demonstrators blocking more than 70 intersections nationwide following the arrest of retired Brig.-Gen. Amir Haskel on Friday afternoon.

Israel Resilience party leader Benny Gantz will reportedly support a new law allowing incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to serve in the government despite multiple indictments against him, according to Hebrew media.
Current Israeli Parliament (Knesset) legislation bars elected officials from serving as government ministers while being charged with a crime.
The activists say they use the black flag, pinning them to the back of vehicles, to symbolize the danger a prime minister under indictment poses to Israeli democracy, according to The Times.
Netanyahu was indicted last year on three charges following a years-long corruption investigation, including breach of public trust, bribery, and fraud.
