Thousands rally in Tel Aviv in protest of government policies

-

Thousands rallied in Tel Aviv on Tuesday night against a government policy that seemed “dangerous” to Israel’s Jewish character.

Holding signs and waving Israeli flags, the public called for the overthrow of the government due to the promotion of a number of legislation aimed at challenging the monopoly of the chief rabbinate on issues such as kosher and conversion to Judaism. The demonstrators also called for the return of Likud chairman and opposition chairman Benjamin Netanyahu as prime minister.

One by one, Likud and religious Zionist legislators and other prominent figures on the political right in Israel took the stage in Habima Square, condemning the government in a rage.

MK Itamar Ben Gvir of the hard-line right-wing Jewish power faction in the religious Zionist party called on protesters to “take to the streets and declare that we want a democratic state, we want a right-wing government, we want the reins of power, we want victory.”

“Two weeks ago a handsome young man was murdered. He was the son of us all, Elijah David Kay. On the day of the funeral, what are the crazy left doing? A conference is being held on settler violence,” he said. The crowd began to despise.

“A Jewish man has been laid to rest and they are talking about violence. ‘You should be ashamed,’ I told them. ‘Do you have no hearts?’ I shouted until I fell out of the conference. ”

According to the organizers, tens of thousands showed up at the rally and show their displeasure with the actions of the government.

“The public voted with their feet. Tens of thousands came here to support the cause and protest against the actions of the Israeli government,” the organizers told Ynet. “The government forgets that we are a Jewish and democratic state that our forefathers fought to establish. Now it is working to erase its identity. This government has no legitimacy and we do not accept it. We will continue to fight to preserve Israel as a Jewish state.”
