among the speakers at the protest rally, including Major General Yair Golan.

"We are paying a painful price for the defense of the homeland against our enemies. But the group of corrupt, mischievous and impersonal people in the government are wasting all the achievements," said Golan, "instead, in order to maintain power, they are doing the only thing they know: to incite and divide. Even In times of war, they are not capable of being stateful."

But the government of destruction, continues the campaign of destruction and they will not stop for a moment," Shneiberg read, "They are willing to continue the battles and fill more and more stretchers, in order to hold on to power forever.
