Author Meir Shalev Wants Netanyahu Out

People in a tent city on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv, who are protesting the lack of affordable housing, received a vote of support, Thursday evening from authors Meir Shalev, Eshkol and Yoram Kaniuk, and poet Ronny Someck.

Referring to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Shalev said, "I want to remain here in a pluralistic society and not in a society of the hareidi-religious and Arabs. A lot of groups are needed. We need to see to it that elections are sooner and that Bibi falls."
