Sagi Ben Nun interviews Yoram Gaon in an interview at the Walla Studio!
The winner of the Israel Prize, the singer Yehoram Gaon, who in recent years has expressed opinions that are identified with the right-wing camp and with Netanyahu, changes direction and attacks the right-wing government and the measures and laws it promotes with harsh words.
"Never has a winning leadership set out with such speed to realize its promises to its public, like some child who has a pot of candy in front of him and he fills his mouth with everything that has been denied him for years. One minister closes the corporation, in health they cancel the tax on sweet drinks, in agriculture they cancel taxes on Import from abroad.
Everything now, quickly lest we be late, lest tomorrow it be impossible already.
What are all these unimportant laws for now, when the country is burning and every law becomes another twig in the fire.
Maybe calm down already?
There were elections.
Start believing that you are in power."
"Why in God's name is there a need now, amid all the demonstrations that are disrupting the running of the country, to amend a law that prohibits gender discrimination, a law of separate entrances to clinics, segregation in nature sites, refraining from supplying a product due to religious belief? Why is this good? The Department of Police Investigations will report directly to the Minister of Justice , the bill of the legal advisers, businesses will be able to prevent providing services because of religious belief, expanding the powers of the rabbinical courts to deal with civil matters as well, and a doctor will be able not to provide treatment that goes against his faith, abolishing the offense of fraud and breach of trust. Come on, are all these laws mandatory? now?
"And the hametz law? If it was next year, would something happen? A law that would allow Knesset members and ministers to receive donations to finance legal or medical procedures - are you normal? Now? Because of the rush to legislate, I'm sure you don't have time to read the sections of the law, and day by day, from demonstration to demonstration, from legislation And another piece of legislation that does not belong to reform, we are losing the strongest asset we had - we lost the common unity that was the most wonderful asset that connected us and made us, with all the ups and downs and differences of opinion, such a wonderful nation. Today, in the internal war between us, we have become an unhappy whole that is broken into parts, with every part crying out A break, something we have never experienced even in our wildest dreams."
"Every part screams broken."

"The feeling today is of an earth shaking beneath us, an unstable earth, everything is shaking beneath the ground of our lives," adds Yoram Gaon and writes.
"Who would have believed that today's holy anxiety and the trembling status on Mount Herzl where all our dead lie together, next to each other 'in holy and pure virtues' could disappear in a black fog of loud quarrels and demonstrations for and against? There are no sacred cows left. They were all slaughtered. The sacred has become sand and water Stop messing with them. As a public that supports changes in the legal system, it's important to me that you know that we are kneeling under the burden of your diligence and not standing up to the pressure. What you are actually doing, elected officials in a hurry, is that you want to fix the dining room while burning down the entire kibbutz."
"This is a fateful moment that cries out to 'stop everything' before it is too late. 'Today is the day of the world' they say on Yom Kippur. Today is the day of the earth. This is exactly the situation we are in. Anyone who values their homeland from any political direction (...) must forget the ego at home ,
