Thousands Demand New Government in Israel
Posted on May 3, 2007
Tens of thousands of Israelis gathered in Tel Aviv on Thursday, calling for a new government. The protest was organized around the handling of the Lebanon war. A recent investigation blamed Prime Minister Ehud Olmert for a “serious failure in exercising judgment, responsibility and prudence.”
Tens of thousands of Israelis are rallying in Tel Aviv, calling for Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to quit over his handling of last year’s Lebanon war.
Demonstrators filled Rabin Square three days after an official interim report sharply criticised Mr Olmert’s role in launching and running the war.
Followers of political parties from across Israel’s often bitter political divides were attending the rally.
