Rabbi: Protest Outside Defense Ministry, Not Rabin Square Event

The Rosh Yeshiva of the Beit El Yeshiva, Rabbi Zalman Melamed, urged the public to set up a protest in front of the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv Sunday to call for a tougher crackdown against Hamas. 

Rabbi Melamed explained that while a rally at Rabin Square planned for Sunday night, coordinated with the #BringBackOurBoys campaign, will feature artists and celebrities, only a protest outside government offices is bound to make a difference. The Ministry of Defense must step up its daily attacks on Hamas, he urged, and the real struggle is against terrorism and its supporters.
