Dozens of Israelis who support the judicial reform arrived at Ben Gurion International Airport on Thursday to greet MK Simcha Rothman (Religious Zionism), who chairs the Knesset's Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee.
Rothman was arriving home from a visit to the US which included New York and Washington.
The group welcomed Rothman with chants of, "The nation demands judicial reform!" and with traditional songs.
Speaking to Israel National News - Arutz Sheva, Rothman said the show of support was "very moving and brought him happiness."
He added, "The majority want and are interested in advancing and correcting the justice system. We see this everywhere. There is a small minority which is screaming, we don't need to get worked up. We need to push forward with all our might and do it - obviously, in the best way possible."
The show of support was organized by the Tekuma 2023 movement, in response to the protests by anti-government demonstrators who intended to come to the airport and protest Rothman.
The right-wing movement also held other shows of support parallel to the road which Rothman took from the airport, at the Gimzo Junction and the Rosh Ha'ayin Junction.
