According to a new initiative spearheaded by the National Union's MK Michael Ben-Ari, September will be full of mass marches by Jews throughout the Land of Israel – especially in Judea and Samaria.
Ben Ari wants to turn the Arab initiative for mass marches on its head and has penned a document titled "September, from Threat to Opportunity: Changing the Rules of the Game."
Since the Arabs wish to create situations in which women and children confront Israeli soldiers, in order to make Israel look bad, Jews should also send out their women, children and elderly, he says – with men in a support role, waiting to intervene in case things get messy. In this way the picture the world sees will be different. "In this way we will destroy the 'September effect' and change the equation on the ground."
Ben Ari hopes that the plan will be embraced by other leaders, as well as rabbis, activists and youths, "which will come together to form a force that will initiate and lead actions against the plans of the Arabs and the radical Left."
