Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced this evening (Monday) the delay of the legislation in order to reach a broad agreement with the members of the opposition, but the protests in the streets of Israel, from the left and the right, are still continuing and the violence is also increasing in the streets during these protests.
Quite a few athletes commented on the political situation in Israel in the weeks and with an emphasis on the last few days, but this evening Danny Avdia, the senior Israeli basketball player who plays for the Washington Wizards of the NBA, also spoke out for the first time.

"It is precisely when I am here, far from my country, that what is happening in Israel is felt with greater intensity," Avdia wrote on his Instagram account, "It is difficult and painful to see what is happening in the streets, demonstrations, hatred whose echoes reach here. As one who feels a great privilege to represent the State of Israel In every game, in every shot to the basket, I hope that this country that I love so much will see better days. Our unity is our strongest strength, we must not forget that."
