The Day of Disruptions of the opponents of the judicial reform and the legally elected government started Tuesday morning, one week after the Day of Resistance. My suggestion for next week is Day of Defiance, although most Israelis would be very happy to see a Day of Detention for the ten thousand or so boomers and trust fund babies who can afford to create this mayhem while their fellow citizens are just trying to get to work.

On Tuesday, the mostly-boomer anarchists plan to focus on the Israel Railways platforms, to make the lives of commuters a living hell after last week they did the same with Israelis going on their summer vacation at Ben Gurion International. Pundit Yotam Zimri suggested on Channel 14’s Patriots Monday night that the protesters’ choices of locations reflect their dwindling numbers – from a hundred thousand blocking Ayalon Highway in the spring down to the significantly smaller Ben Gurion terminals, to the even smaller yet train platforms. He believes next week they’ll be blocking bike lanes.
לכל מי שדאג לגבי החום, המפגינים הביאו מטריות ודואגים למים וניגוב זיעה לכל האזוקים. לא יודע איך זה יעזור מול החום של האספלט אבל זו גם התחלה. המספר של האזוקים עלה לעשרות, חלק עם שרשראות אופניים חלק עם שרשראות חוליות, אחרים עם צינורות. pic.twitter.com/naAIiWKXIX

There will also be a protest of Israeli boomers and trust fund babies in Washington DC on Wednesday, to coincide with President Itzhak Herzog’s White House visit. Our friends in NY who don’t know I’m listening just WhatsApped: “We also need a bit of your support. Our funds, previously collected for equipment and printing costs, are nearly over. We are during a critical fight till the end of the Knesset’s summer conference in two weeks (obvious Hebrew syntax – DI). Right after that, we will continue our fight for Israeli democracy – as we know, the eternal nation does not fear a long journey! 🙂 (sic.) If you could make a donation, no matter how small, we would truly appreciate it.
That’s it. Enjoy the embedded images. Take something calming and lie down, preferably in an air-conditioned room. This madness should pass by July 31.
