Right-wing activists were protesting against the government's handling of the kidnap, clapping, whistling and chanting anti-Arab and anti-government slogans.

"You protect them [the Arabs] instead of us!" one activist shouted. "You are not our police. We will topple this government. We don't want this government, we want a Jewish state!"


Other activists carried and waved Israeli flags, as police officers looked on, monitoring the rally.
