BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – Around 90,000 people, mainly from the Druze minority, gathered in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square on Saturday, to demonstrate against the new Jewish nation-state law.
This law states that Israel is the national home of the Jewish people and that Jewish people have a right to exercise national self-determination in Israel.
The bill prompted particular outrage from the Druze community, who serve in the Israeli military.
“We feel we’ve been betrayed by the government led by Benjamin Netanyahu,” one protester said. “We will not be second-class citizen in the Jewish republic. We will make sure that democracy will remain in this country,” he added.
