Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today (Sunday) at the beginning of the cabinet meeting that the demonstrations against him and against government corruption are “an attempt to trample on democracy.” Netanyahu condemned the violence, making it clear that “it has no place on either side, and we have zero patience for any revelation or threat of violence against any person.”

“But here in the name of democracy, I see an attempt to trample on democracy,” he stressed. “In these demonstrations there is a distortion of all the rules. It is a corona incubator. No one has tried to limit it, on the contrary – the demonstrations are fueled by a media mobilization that has not revived like it. Allows to block roads in stark contrast to everything that was in the past.”
