There have been countless protests going on in the state of Israel, and the escalation of the war against Gaza has contributed towards it. It seems that Israelis are also tired with the war that is ongoing. There are several bold claims that are being made towards the Israeli government by the Israeli people. 

According to the Washington Post, thousands protested against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Monday, demanding early elections and a hostage deal amid political turmoil. The demonstration turned violent, with protesters attacking police and setting fires. Police reported nine arrests and used force to disperse the crowd. 

Protesters criticised Netanyahu for not committing to a ceasefire to release hostages held by Hamas. Despite Israel's authorization of a U.S.-proposed ceasefire plan, Netanyahu's government objected to some elements, and Hamas demanded changes rejected by Israel. 

Demonstrators, led by Shikma Bressler, accused the government of incitement and division. Additional protests are planned in Ashkelon, Caesarea, and Tel Aviv this week.

Apparently, there were more than 150,000 people in these riots. An X user states that these protesters had the intention of showing Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu that they want a new government. X users are asking if these 150,000 Israelis are actually anti-Semitic as they are against their own government. 

On social media, there are large numbers of users who are openly anti-Semitic under the guise that Israel is the reflection of all the Jewish people. For obvious reasons, this is not true at all. There are several users sending their apologies towards individuals who hold the Jewish faith. 

Regardless, making racist comments towards anyone regardless of their background should not be something that is normalised. It is still unclear if Israel would be holding their elections this year in lieu with the riots that are continuing on in the country.
