Education Minister Yoav Kisch says of the widespread national protests against the judicial overhaul that “we won’t give in to this terror.”

“It is an attempt to intimidate elected officials and disrupt the lives of millions,” the Likud lawmaker tells Army Radio. “People are allowed to block the Ayalon [highway] every week. Where is the justice?”

Yesh Atid MK Orna Barbivai decries his comments.

“Shame on him. He calls the demonstrators who go out with a flag, the grandmothers and children who instead of enjoying summer vacation have gone out to protect the country — he calls them terror?”
