As soon as last week’s massive IDF operation in Jenin concluded, discussion began over of this most comprehensive action against the terror hotbed in the past 21 years.
There has been outrage in Israel over the fact that anti-government protests, including an attempt to close down Ben-Gurion Airport, continued during the IDF operation in Jenin.
While the opposition leaders in Knesset rallied behind the government’s policy against the terrorists in Jenin, the leaders of the protest movement hid behind a cheap excuse.
The process leading to reforms in the judicial system was not stopped, it was argued, so there was also no reason to halt the protests, and this was another sign that something fundamental has changed in Israeli society.
In times of war and during waves of terror, all internal disputes used to be put aside and people united behind the army. This is apparently no longer the case.
