      Histadrut: Israel not Syria; Netanyahu not the Target

      Histadrut national labor union chairman Ofer Eini punctured the housing protest balloon Monday morning and said he will not be part of an effort topple the Netanyahu government. “If the objective [of the protests] is to bring down Netanyahu, I will not participate,” he said in an interview on Army Radio. “We are a democratic government, and we are not Egypt or Syria.”
