Don’t call us an existential threat, protesting reserves troops growl at PM

Organizers behind a rash of reserves soldiers opposed to the judicial overhaul saying they will not heed military orders snap back at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after he says the protest movement threatens the state’s existence.

“The prime minister stands next to a Kahanist criminal who calls for villages to be wiped out and preaches to us against insubordination and in favor of national unity,” the group says in a statement, the Ynet news site reports.

“Don’t lie to us about cohesion when you are leading a violent dictatorial coup, don’t call us insubordinate, and don’t call us an existential threat,” the statement adds. “We will not volunteer to serve under a dictatorship.”
