Shahar Yaori, the father of Amit Yaori who fell in Operation Tzuk Eitan in 2014, participated today (Wednesday) in the demonstration of the reservists in Jerusalem, who are protesting against the legal revolution promoted by the government.
Yauri stood out in the protest because of a sign with his son's picture that he was carrying, on which he wrote: "The price was not worth it."
"There was no one who told me that it was irrelevant," he said, "Bereaved parents who were debating approached me. I received many hugs."
"I think that anyone who doesn't see what's going to happen here is blind," Yaori said about the legal reform.
"My personal pain is involved in this, but it doesn't matter which side it is on the political map. This is not a political event - anyone who holds the country dear to their heart should be very worried."
On the poster he carried with his son's picture and the caption, he said, "I did it on my own initiative and at my own expense. No one pushed me. My daughter asked me to add a question mark at the end of the sentence, but for me it was said with an exclamation mark. They can think and criticize me."

To the criticism that may be heard about the use of his son's picture for the purposes of political protest, he responds and attacks Netanyahu: "Didn't Netanyahu catch a ride on the bereavement? He built his entire career on it. The Likud itself launched a campaign with Avishi Ivri on Mount Herzl, very close to the son's lot My".
He added, "When you come from a whole family you are not a private person. It starts at Shava with visits from ministers and the Chief of Staff.
Bibi wanted to visit me at the time and I refused.
We ask that you come to tell, to lecture, to explain.
People you don't know send you memories and stories."
