Michal Hadas Rubin from the Awakened Mothers group speaks at the protest outside the President’s Residence in Jerusalem, which is attended by hundreds of people.

She calls on the government to act with responsibility toward “our children who are serving,” including Rubin’s, whose son is a reservist and an enlisted daughter.

“They [the government] are making decisions for the survival of the coalition. There are more injured soldiers, soldiers who have been killed but hey, the coalition is surviving. The leadership should only act and do what is good for the country.”

As the crowd calls for elections, Rubin says, “Let’s choose to act before it’s too late.”

Protests are scheduled Saturday evening throughout the country to call for an immediate deal to release hostages held by Hamas in the Gaza Strip, and new national elections.
