Tens of thousands filled the squares: Protests continue in Israel

Protests against judicial reform in Israel were held in the shadow of the raids on Masjid al-Aqsa and the subsequent attacks.14. Tens of thousands of people protested against the judicial reform of Netanyahu’s far-right coalition government.

The demonstrations, attended by tens of thousands of Israelis who oppose the government’s regulation to limit the powers of the judiciary, left its 14th week behind last night. Tens of thousands of Israelis participated in demonstrations in cities such as Tel Aviv and West Jerusalem, as well as Haifa, Birussebi, Nes Ziona and Rehovot.
The demonstrations were held in the shadow of the region’s spiral of violence as Israeli forces attacked the Masjid al-Aqsa and the Muslims worshiping there during Ramadan. This week, the region witnessed events that increased tensions, such as rockets fired from Lebanon to Israel against the Israeli forces‘ raids on Masjid al-Aqsa, and the Israeli army’s air strikes on Gaza.
While protesting groups condemn the attacks against Israelis, they argue that the current security crisis in the country is responsible for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the coalition government led by him.
In a written statement, the „Umbrella Movement“, one of the groups organizing the protests, stated that they would continue to support the Israeli army, but at the same time, they would continue to protest against the dictatorship. In the statement, it was stated that more than 450 thousand people took to the streets in the 14th week of the demonstrations held all over Israel.
Tel Aviv hosted the show with the highest participation every week. Tens of thousands of protesters gathered outside the Government Complex on Kaplan Street. Huge placards for Netanyahu reading „Crime Minister“ in English were hung in the area.
At the demonstrations in Tel Aviv, the Jewish people addressed Prime Minister Netanyahu on the occasion of „Passover,“ mentioned in the book of Exodus from Egypt of the Torah, Hz. A huge banner was carried with the words „Release my people“, referring to Moses‘ call to Pharaoh to drive the Israelites out of Egypt. On the stage set in the square, well-known names from Israel’s politics, art and business world gave speeches about democracy demands. The demonstrators supported the speakers with applause, which they watched from the giant screens set up on the surrounding main streets.
The demonstrators, who often chanted „democracy“ with Israeli flags in their hands, carried banners criticizing the far-right politicians in the coalition government. Thousands of demonstrators in West Jerusalem also gathered in front of the Presidential Residence to protest the judicial arrangement. This week, names such as former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and former Head of Military Intelligence Major General Amos Malka took part in the demonstrations.
On the other hand, Yoav Horowitz, who served as Chief of Staff and Director of the Prime Minister’s Office in Netanyahu’s previous terms, argued that Netanyahu „wanted to be like Putin (Russian President Vladimir Putin)“. Horowitz told Haaretz, „It won’t stop until the entire judicial system gets on its knees and begs for his forgiveness (Netanyahu). He is a master of manipulation and campaigning.“ used the phrase. Pointing out that Netanyahu wanted to concentrate all power in his hands through controversial judicial regulation, Horowitz said, „He saw himself as a prime minister in the form of a Caesar or a superhero. I saw how much he wanted to be like Putin. Now he wants unlimited power.“ said.
The „judicial reform“, announced by Israeli Minister of Justice Yariv Levin on January 5, includes regulations that limit the powers of the Supreme Court and allow the government to have a say in judicial appointments. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on March 27 that he was postponing the judicial regulation, which caused mass protests and strikes across the country. Despite the postponement decision, the Netanyahu government, which did not take a step back, stated that it would bring the controversial regulation back to the Parliament at the beginning of May.
