Do you get the feeling that Netanyahu’s days are numbered—as a prime minister!

I read the post, but skipped the comments. The article was tiring and depressing enough!! ( Thank you for the stars, Sam.)

It's not clear if this is last week's event ... or whether they've had the courage to demonstrate again ...

But it is important to recognise that BN's supporters DON'T speak for all Jews, all Jewish Israelis

Thanks, Sam

It IS yesterday's NEW rally, indeed! Here's the original news report
http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/thousands-of-israelis/2215944.html
and that is VERY GOOD NEWS! (We did urge them to keep it up and excercise their democracy !)
Thanks Sam!

But, not all look for praceful action, here is BAD NEWS- this time one of the most popular politicians was attacked:

*peaceful action, of course- and sorry for no live links, they usually get cut off by C2 so I won't even bother

It should also be pointed out that Yahoo appears to be the nly, at least ne of few US news outlets who get the sequence right when they report:
"Since the start of this month, 52 Palestinians and one Israeli Arab have died in clashes or while carrying out attacks.
Eight Israelis have died in attacks. One Israeli Jew and one Eritrean have been killed after being mistaken for attackers."
NOT the other way round , pointing out Israeli victims first, sometimes only.

It's good to see that so many people dared to come to this second (third?) peace rally, but the tone seems to have been a lot more pessimistic than in the first.
So I'm afraid Netanyahu isn't on his way to the exit just yet, Sam.

Noted. Thanks, Sam.
Still, Canada just booted the conservative party out of power, and the UK recently opted for more liberal leaders....pushing out their Conservatives. Bernie Sanders is making big political news here in the US with MUCH support.....so it seems entirely possible Netanyahu's days are numbered. Often, "all is quiet before a storm." So, I will keep hoping that the BDS movement along with all the bad press will soon oust him from office.

Glad to see people willing to stand up to a theocracy, no matter how 'vogue' it is to blindly support them!

And so so so happy to see more of these stories rather than ridiculous reactionary propaganda and religious intolerance on Care2. Huzzah, I have faith in humanity again, at least a little :)
