Reserve soldiers and bereaved family members protesting the failures of the war in Lebanon formed a procession of cars from Mazkeret Batya to Jerusalem, calling on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Amir Peretz, and IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz to resign. The procession left from the gravesite of St.-Sgt. Rafenael Muscal, who was killed in Maroun al-Ras, and was expected to arrive in another hour at the grave of former prime minister Golda Meir at Mt. Herzl. The demonstrators said they saw in Golda Meir an example of a leader who showed her responsibility by resigning after the Yom Kippur War. The protesters planned to hold a short rally near the grave, and then to return to the protest tent across from the prime minister's office.
