Revered Israeli author David Grossman addresses the crowd at the anti-government protest in Tel Aviv this evening.
“The State of Israel was established so that there would be one place in the world where the Jewish person, the Jewish people, would feel at home. But if so many Israelis feel like strangers in their own country, obviously something is going wrong,” Grossman says.
“Now is the dark hour. Now is the moment to stand up and cry out: This land is in our souls. What happens in it today, will determine who it will be and who we and our children will become,” he says.
“Because if Israel will become different and far from the hope and vision that created it, God forbid, in a certain sense, it will not be,” Grossman warns.
