MK Shai: Let the Protests Continue


Member of Knesset Nachman Shai (Kadima) said, Friday, that reports of forceful removal of the tent cities associated with Israel's social-justice protests should be rejected. Dr. Shai said, "This is a legitimate protest by hundreds of thousands of Israelis who are acting in a legal and democratic way, and demanding that the government fulfill its responsibilities to them."

The former spokesman of the Israel Defense Forces added, "Any act of force against the protesters could arouse serious violence and unexpected results."
