MK Miri Regev (Likud) accused the social protesters on Wednesday of anarchism and of working against the State of Israel, Channel 10 News reported. Regev spoke during a Knesset discussion which convened following violent protests in Tel Aviv over the weekend.
Regev said that protest leader Daphni Leef and her friends “do not want change, they want to protest just for the sake of protesting. Daphni Leef and her friends from the far left do not represent the public. Our role is to maintain democracy. You cannot flaunt democracy only when it seems fit.”
