‘War minister!’ Hundreds rally in Tel Aviv to decry Israeli PM’s defense chief pick

from RT

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Tel Aviv on Saturday to protest the far-right turn the government has signaled by choosing Avigdor Lieberman as Defense Minister. Activists say PM Benjamin Netanyahu is putting Israel on a path of war.

Demonstrators came together at HaBima Square in Tel Aviv, saying that by appointing Lieberman to head the military, Netanyahu had created the “most right wing government in the history of the State,” Israeli media reported.

“We think this government is a disaster for our country,” the Jerusalem Post quoted one of the organizers as shouting. “There is no future or vision.” 

Protesters held up Peace Now signs and waved green left-wing Meretz party flags as they chanted slogans with Netanyahu’s nickname: “Bibi you failed, Bibi go home,” and “We don’t want more victims, Lieberman is a minister of war.”

  1. Lieberman is the Mafyia’s representative in the Israeli Knesset. Yes , criminal gangsters actually have official representation in this legislative body. Lieberman is also one of the two leading suspects in the downing of flight MH-17.
    That this criminal and terrorist could be Mordor’s minister of war- I would guess that a major war is only months away. God help us all.

  2. “Hundreds”? Wow. Impressive…..

  3. War is their business model. No morals!
