Some 1,500 take part in right-wing protest against government in Tel Aviv

Some 1,500 people are participating in a right-wing demonstration in Habima Square in Tel Aviv against the government.

Some protesters claim Prime Minister Naftali Bennett “stole the election.” Others claim he is beholden to Islamists in the coalition’s Ra’am party, who they assert are supporters of terrorism.

Several MKs, including Likud’s Amir Ohana and Eli Cohen, tell the crowds that Israel is endangered by the current government. Ohana claims various bodies such as the legal system and the media banded together to drive Netanyahu out of power.

He thanks those in attendance for “rising up against the greatest democratic theft in the history of Israel.”
