Massive rally against Olmert's government tonight in Tel Aviv

This evening saw the biggest anti-government rally in quite a while. At least 200,000 people attended:
Over 200,000 people have gathered in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square on Thursday night as a mass rally against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert gained momentum.

Bereaved parents were the first to address the crowd.

Asnag Vishneri, the mother of a soldier who was killed in Gaza, said, “We demand a leadership that is not cut off from the nation and that isn’t led by egos and political calculations.

“I call on the government to look into the eyes of the real losers of this failed war, the bereaved families, and ask us for forgiveness.”

[...]

The demonstration was organized in the wake of a damning interim report on the handling of last summer's war with Hizbullah.

The Winograd Commission, appointed by Olmert and Defense Minister Amir Peretz last September, censured both leaders for their flawed leadership during the war.

People from all walks of life poured into the square to convey their frustration with the army's poor performance against Hizbullah last summer, calling for Olmert and Peretz to step down immediately.
The people have spoken. Is Olmert listening?

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I do not know if I'll ever be as good as him, but I do my best.
