Amidst nationwide protests in Israel following the firing of Defense Minister Yaov Gallant who called for halting of negotiations over judicial reform for the Passover break, experts believe there is more behind the demonstrations than opposition to judicial reforms proposed by Netanyahu’s government.  Israeli Middle East expert Amir Tsarfati says, “The attempt here is to throw the Netanyahu government and to get back to have the left ruling with the immunity that it will get from the Supreme Court.”  The proposed reforms would curtail the power of the courts which is considered unparalleled compared to any other democracy. Tsarfati thinks the protests are well funded, saying, “We’re talking about countries that are helping.  We’re talking about billionaires and bank owners that are involved here. This is not the common person.”
