24 Hours of Israel in Fact and Viral Video
Documenting the national crisis that could be the end of democratic Israel
Public learns that PM Netanyahu is to undergo surgery to be fitted with a pacemaker, one week after he was rushed to hospital after having collapsed at home. Physicians then said he had been “dehydrated” and kept him overnight in the cardiac unit to implant a subcutaneous heart monitor and keep an eye on him. All “routine” precautions.
Yesterday Netanyahu designated Likud #2 and Minister of Justice Yariv Levin to assume the PM’s role should he not be fit to govern following his pacemaker surgery.
Levin has revealed himself to be fanatical with respect to his loathing of the judiciary and national institutions that safeguard democracy. Like an independent judiciary.
Tens of thousands of Israelis protesting the “judicial reform” legislation arrive in Jerusalem at twilight. They have walked four days straight in oppressive heat from Tel Aviv, tracing the path of prophets and Hebrew warriors in 1948 who fought fiercely for every inch of territory in the hills leading up to Jerusalem.
Air force pilots and navigators hold a press conference in Herzliya announcing that well over one thousand of their colleagues will refuse to show up for reserve duty.
This is a death knell for Israel’s security.
