Major general (res.) Amos Malka, a former head of the Israel Defense Forces Military Intelligence Directorate, speaks at the Jerusalem rally, drawing a link between the coalition that came into power in December 2022 and  the events of October 7.

“What’s with this crazy government? This untethered prime minister?” asks Malka.

Malka says Netanyahu brought Israel into his own war for survival and calls him a leader with “zero empathy and zero responsibility.”

He accuses Netanyahu of helping to cultivate Hamas, as the crowd yells in approval.

“2024 is the year when the fate of the country will be determined,” says Malka, referring to the multiple war fronts, the hostages, Israel’s relationship with the US, its relations with Egypt, Jordan and the signatories to the Abraham Accords.

“These kinds of challenges can only be met by a government that has the trust of the country,” says Malka. “And this government does not have the trust of the public.”

Malka concludes by calling for new elections this summer.
