Some of the demonstrators marched to Netanyahu’s home in Balfour in Jerusalem, walked around the Hillel and Menashe Ben Israel intersections, and returned to Paris Square. The demonstrations also took place in other areas, Charles Clore in Tel Aviv and in front of Netanyahu’s house in Caesarea. Towards the end of Shabbat, thousands of demonstrators gathered at more than 250 intersections and bridges across the country, as part of the “black flags” protest.

In recent weeks, there have been quite a few violent incidents between protesters and police, and the police seem to be referring to this possibility as well: And stressed that: “Violent riots and riots, will be treated with zero tolerance and determination.”
The protest is expected to continue against Balfour during the week as well. The past week has been saturated with severe protests, in which journalists and news crews covering the demonstrations were even attacked. The violent discourse on the Internet is also growing, and Netanyahu even released a short video over the weekend with a series of posts calling on him and his family to be harmed. Ben Caspit replied that one of the pictures that appeared in this matter, of Prof. Ruhama Rice, was fake and never wrote these things.
The organizers of the black flag protest, objects to Netanyahu’s resignation, said: “This week we were exposed to how far the accused is willing to go against the people of Israel for his interests. The more they incite, the more we will be attacked. The more the people of Israel deserve leadership that works for the people – not for tax benefits and not for cutting coupons from vessel and submarine deals. Until Bibi resigns“.
Simultaneously with the Balfour protest: Hundreds of protesters in front of the home of the Supreme President Hundreds of protesters arrived in front of Esther Hayut’s house on Saturday night and protested against the Supreme Court judges’ decision to allow a protest in front of the prime minister’s house even after 11:00 PM, when it is forbidden to make noise in the public space. The demonstrators protested against “legal corruption”, to their definition, and shouted, among other things: “We are being robbed of democracy”, “You are a shame”, “The people are the sovereign”, “This is not Iran” and other calls.
Matan Peleg, chairman of the If You Will movement that led the protest, said: “High Court judges are openly acting as a political body, seeking to shape Israel’s policy in place of its elected officials. They are material in the hands of the creator and not a framework that they must respect, preserve and rule on. This situation poses a real danger to Israeli democracy. Enough of the dictatorship of the High Court! If the residents of Rehavia do not sleep – so will the residents of Tzahala. Want to sleep quietly ?! “Make sure that the honorable president resigns immediately.”
