Netanyahu: Protesters ‘ending democracy’ by blocking lawmakers’ homes

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu assails protesters who gathered around the home of MK Tally Gotliv, whose daughter has special needs.

“When protesters prevent public representatives from coming to the Knesset to vote, and make an autistic girl miserable, that isn’t a legitimate protest,” he says in a statement.

“The protesters who preach about democracy are the ones ending democracy by preventing public representatives from realizing a basic right in a democracy — voting,” Netanyahu adds.

“I call on the police to act immediately and allow all Knesset members to come to parliament.”
