Despite the phone calls and pashkavilim calling on the masses to participated, some thirty protesters, sikrikim and members of the Peleg Yerushalmi branch of the litvish community participated in a Wednesday evening protest against MK Uri Maklev.
Labeling him a “traitor” and using other harsh terms, the small group gathered outside the Jerusalem home of the Degel Hatorah MK to protest ongoing activities towards passing a new draft law.
Similar protests have recently been held outside the Bnei Brak home of Degel MK Moshe Gafne. In addition, there have been physical assaults against Gafne and Deputy Minister Meir Porush, of the Agudas Yisrael faction of Yahadut Hatorah. They have all been labeled “traitors”, “criminals” and worse.
