Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who says his aim is to balance out branches of government, wields a parliamentary majority along with his religious-nationalist coalition allies. “It’s not a judicial reform. The protests were mostly peaceful, though Reuters witnessed some injuries and arrests among protesters when police moved in against attempts to block traffic. Netanyahu, who returned to office for a sixth term in late December, says the demonstrations are aimed at toppling him. “I am here to protest against the reform in the law, and to protest our prime minister, who we call ‘Crime Minister’,” said demonstrator Miri Lahat, 63.
