The Anti-Netnayhu Protests, Israel Rising
This page is dedicated to the current uprising against Israel’s current prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu (Bibi).
It is included in the blog category of “Israel’s Best” because the best of Israel, old and young, is now marching and gathering on the streets, junctions, fields and bridges around the country, north to south, cities to villages, from Med sea to Red sea, to save our country from the dangers of corruption, compromised media, politicized police and an impending dictatorship under the guise of the coronavirus.
Before the Covid crisis I admit that, like many, I failed to see the extent of the corruption, governmental overreach and the rule through hate-mogering, incitement, divisiveness and nepotism that are now endangering our beautiful democracy and undermining everything good and sound this country has stood for and embodied.
But my eyes have now opened and this section of the website is dedicated to documenting the protest movement as it unfolds. At the time of writing, I have been in person to more than 10 demonstrations, large, small and huge, and have watched on social media what was happening in other parts of the country. The mainstream media in Israel and abroad have by and large ignored this massive movement.
This is my small contribution to do it justice and correct this gap in public knowledge.
The submarine flotilla cross country event was one of the largest and better organized events of the Israeli anti-Netanyahu protest movement. I am trying to do it justice, since the compromised mainstream media largely chose, or was instructed, to ignore it.
Israel rising – Bibi uses the coronavirus crisis to escape trial, establish dictatorship. We, aware citizen, won’t let him. First post in series about protests and spirit you do not hear much on the mainstream media, here or abroad.
