Netanyahu Let the Dogs Out

When a crime-suspected leader tries to destroy your democracy, you don’t have to accept it. It’s a lesson that could soon be useful for Americans. Netanyahu delays judicial overhaul after mass protests. Israel has plenty of problems these days, but pro-democracy Americans could learn something from the way they’re protesting. During the Trump era, my Holocaust-surviving dad constantly wondered aloud, “Why aren’t people in the streets?” He’d be proud of his oldest daughter who has been on the streets of Israel as part of a movement that seems to be working.

+ The already massive protests got a lot more intense after Netanyahu fired his defense minister who “had spoken out against controversial plans to overhaul the justice system.” (Remember when Trump fired Mark Esper?)
