Sheftel: Housing Protest is Artificial


Attorney Yoram Sheftel claimed in an interview with Arutz Sheva on Thursday that the housing protest is artificial and would dissipate within a few days.

“There’s nothing there which even remotely resembles a widespread popular protest,” Sheftel said. “Dozens of tents are empty at night. In some places the demonstrators are there just because of media presence.”

Sheftel added, “Let them go to the airport and see how many people are going abroad, let them go to the Tel Aviv port and see how full the restaurants are. Who said that there is dissatisfaction in the country? These are words of deceit and injustice by the media.”
