Hundreds of rightist protesters gathered in Jerusalem Thursday evening to rally against the incoming national unity government, condemning the new coalition for its reliance on the United Arab List (Ra'am) and left-wing parties.There's photos at the link. This pretty much makes clear even victims of terrorism are aware Bennett's the phony he always was, supposedly upholding valid issues but ultimately proving he wasn't honest on many of the most serious ones. Now, he's facing opposition and a very low approval rating.
Under the banner "No To A Left-Wing Government", the demonstration is being held near the Knesset building to protest the planned vote on and inauguration of the incoming government in the Knesset plenum this coming Sunday.
"We came here to prevent division within the people of Israel," said Rabbi Yehuda Ben-Yishai, the father of Ruth Fogel, one of the victims of the 2011 Itamar Massacre, carried out by a pair of Arab terrorists.
"Our enemies have a clear goal to divide the people of Israel. They are using pretty words to infiltrate and to get into the pure hearts of Israel."
The new government, which is set to be led by Prime Minister-designate Naftali Bennett (Yamina) for the first two years, is expected to be voted in and sworn in at 4:00 p.m. Sunday, during a special session of Knesset.
Update: new polls show Bennett's small party losing even more ground if another election were held now.
