TEL AVIV - Ten days before Israel’s general election, more than 40,000 Israelis took to central Tel Aviv on Saturday evening, calling for the replacement of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The protest, organised by the V15 movement, a grassroots movement that stands for Victory 2015, was the largest demonstration so far during this year’s elections – and the first time since Netanyahu came to power in 2009 that Israeli voters in such large numbers have demanded a new government.
Their main message, shared in the city’s Rabin Square, was that Netanyahu has led Israel into a catastrophe both diplomatically and domestically.
A rally seeking change in Israel’s leadership attracted tens of thousands to Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square on Saturday night.
According to the "Israel Wants Change" event's organizers, more than 35 thousand people attended. Other officials estimate between 25,000-30,000 protesters turned out to the rally.
Keynote speaker, former Mossad chief Meir Dagan, told the crowd that Israel faces its worst crisis ever under Netanyahu's leadership.
"No one denies that Iran's nuclear program is a threat, but going to war with the U.S. is not the way to stop it," Dagan said.
Meir Dagan, a former Mossad director, strongly disagreed with many of Netanyahu’s assertions, stating that "Iranian missiles will never be able to hit the United States," and that comments that Iran could producer nuclear weapons within a year were "bulls***."
It appears “Bibi” is far more popular with crazy American neocons than he is with his own fellow citizens.
Only a few days after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned from his much publicized United States trip, during which he was celebrated and drooled over by America’s top warmongers, a large protest against him erupted in the nation’s section largest city, Tel Aviv.

Imagine if Netanyahu loses this election....the Republicans/TP are already in enough hot water for inviting Netanyahu to speak....backing a loser would be simply glorious.

America is linked to Israel....If the US wants a war, they will listen to the people complaining and just put another war-monger in power! It may look to the people as change is coming for Israel, but the USA will get what they want...If the USA wants war, it will happen no matter who is put in office...And believe me, the USA will have direct contact with the next puppet put in power over there.
The Merneptah Stele—also known as the Israel Stele or Victory Stele of Merneptah—is an inscription by the Ancient Egyptian king Merneptah (reign: 1213 to 1203 BC) discovered by Flinders Petrie in 1896 at Thebes, and now housed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
most scholars accept that Merneptah refers to "Israel"
