Activists against the judicial overhaul film themselves verbally berating Economy Minister Nir Barkat, causing him to quickly leave a restaurant.
“Aren’t you ashamed? We won’t be able to go to the army. Shame!” one activist says, referring to the many IDF reservists who have or are threatening to stop volunteering for reserve service due to the government plan.
Another person shouts: “Thieves! Criminals! You son of a bitch, filth. We won’t give you a minute of rest.”
They continue following Barkat all the way to his car, calling him a “coward” and referencing a series of bills being advanced aimed at personally benefiting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Shas party leader Aryeh Deri.
