Anti-Judicial Reform Protesters Target Jerusalem Yeshiva

(JNS) Dozens of anti-judicial reform demonstrators gathered for a rally on Wednesday morning, July 5 in front of Har Hamor, a Religious Zionist yeshiva in Jerusalem.

Protesters said that they were targeting the yeshiva because it would lead Israel in the direction of being a “halachic state,” a country based on Jewish religious laws.

“We came to protest against messianic religious Zionism that is destroying Israel,” protester Tamir Levital told Channel 12 news. “The rabbis who educate teenagers here are the same rabbis supplying religious Zionism’s politicians, who are taking Israel in the direction of a halachic state of Jewish supremacism and racism.”

One person was arrested during the demonstration, which featured Israeli flags and smoke flares.

This follows a protest on Monday, when dozens were detained as thousands of protesters attempted to bar access to Ben-Gurion Airport.

Demonstrators blocked roads leading in and out of the country’s principal international gateway, prompting police to use riot dispersal means. Authorities were also seen ejecting protesters from the airport’s arrivals hall. At least four protesters were arrested for blocking the primary road to the hall, in this effort by opponents of the government’s judicial reform initiative to bring Israel to a halt.
