Israelis demonstrate against government in Tel Aviv

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Thousands of Israelis demonstrated against the current government and called for a solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

About 3,000 demonstrators met Saturday night in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square and marched to the Israel Defense Department headquarters.

The demonstrators chanted slogans such as “Jews and Arabs don’t want to hate each other,” and “Israel, Palestine, two states for two peoples,” according to reports.

The rally was sponsored by Peace Now. It was attended by Israeli lawmakers including left-wing Meretz Party leader Zehava Galon, and Zionist Union lawmaker Stav Shaffir.

“Bibi, you’ve failed. You’ve failed in providing personal security for the citizens of Israel, you’ve failed in proposing any kind of vision for changing the reality,”  Galon said.
