MK Ayoub Kara (Likud) called on Thursday for the tent protests to stop, following the terrorist attacks near Eilat.
"Security matters are once again the most pressing issue," Kara said. "We are far from being like Finland or Holland where social issues are most important."
He added: "If I were one of the architects of the protest, I would
announce that all demonstrations are canceled until the Trajtenberg
Committee announces its findings, out of identification with those
injured in the south."
Kara warned that in the coming months "difficult events are sure to happen," and said Israel's priority should be defense.
The Likud MK singled out those who pitched their tents on Rothschild Street in Tel Aviv.
"Those protesters are all in the middle class – they're not in a crisis
situation like the demonstrators in Beersheba or Kiryat Shmona," Kara
explained. "When the country faces difficult situations, the middle
class can put its protest on hold."
