Israel rocked by largest protests since war began as Netanyahu faces growing pressure

Thousands of people took to the streets of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem over the weekend in the largest protests Israel has seen since the start of the war against Hamas, a significant challenge to the increasingly embattled leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Demonstrators are angry at Netanyahu and his government for not having secured the release of all the hostages taken captive during the October 7 terror attack. While 105 people were released during a temporary truce last year, another 130 that were kidnapped are either dead or still being held by Hamas and other militant groups.

Banners at the protests called on the Prime Minister to resign and for Israel to hold new elections.

“You’ve failed,” one poster read. “Impeachment now,” read another.

these Israelis or loudmouth know-nothings who are charging random falafel joint owners with genocide?

And who do progressives need to support more, Israelis opposing the Netanyahu government, or Columbia University sophomores chanting "from the river to the sea"?
