Protestors played dead outside the Defense Ministry headquarters in Tel Aviv on Thursday evening, to simulate casualties in a demonstration against an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Chanting “we don’t want another war”, the demonstrators numbered only around 30 people, protesting a war that at least one nationwide poll has shown the majority of Israelis don’t support.
MK Dov Khenin of the Hadash party, a fixture of social justice and anti-war rallies in Tel Aviv, addressed the crowd, saying “if this war happens, there won’t be a public debate before and our voice won’t be heard, we’ll all just wake up in the morning, turn on the radio and hear the news.”
“History tells us that talk of war usually leads to a war”, Khenin warned, adding that the Israeli home front is desperately unprepared for a war with Iran.
