Israel’s main general union threatens Netanyahu over judicial reform

Israel stands in the face of chaos. The country’s main union has threatened to call a general strike if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu does not stop the controversial planned judicial reform. The sector has already responded to the call and hung up their clothes to huge cheers in front of the Knesset, the Israeli parliament. The union, which represents 800,000 workers in the country, shut down Ben Gurion airport from which no flights left after Monday morning.

The Histadrut umbrella group represents a multitude of sectors, such as health, transit or banking. Its complete shutdown could cripple much of Israel’s economy, which is already reeling with an ever-weaker shekel. For now the part of education, in those schools, universities and seminaries, is united. Even health care workers, with thousands of nurses and doctors represented in their unions, left their jobs. In the town halls, essential services stopped on a day that seems to mark a before and after in today’s political landscape.

Hundreds of business centers and shopping malls have closed their doors, as have bank branches from morning to morning. A large part of Israeli society, hundreds of thousands of people, demonstrated overnight, after Netanyahu was fired as the minister of defense, the main blockade of the country overnight, to demand that the judicial reform be stopped. “We are all concerned about the fate of Israel,” Histadrut President Arnon Bar-David admitted in a press conference with business leaders and public officials. “Let’s say one thing is enough!” in an attempt to “stop the madness” of Netanyahu’s judicial proposal.

Netanyahu’s earrings

In turn, the president of Israel, Isaac Herzog, asked the prime minister to act “socially and courageously”; stop immediately & rdquo; The legislative process on the reform of the judicial controversy divides the country. Most of Netanyahu’s allies agreed with the Israeli leader’s decision to adopt a legislative policy in the cold for weeks to polarize the partnership. With the exception of Itamar Ben Gvir, the fiery Jewish power leader and current minister of public security, who has threatened to withdraw Netanyahu’s stable of legal reviews.

All eyes on Netanyahu. In the critical hours, most of the Israeli media reported that the longest serving leader in the country’s history would resign with this decision in the next few hours. But Bibi did not postpone his appearance, so it remains to be seen if the pressure at the gates of the Knesset will lead to a new Israel at the end of the day.
