Israeli PM Forms Large Coalition, Police Repress Protest

On Tuesday night Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu
reached a deal with the leader of the opposition, Shaul Mofaz. By joining
Netanyahu’s massive coalition, Mofaz’s Kadima Party left behind an
opposition of only 26 seats against the massive coalition of 94. In
response, a spontaneous protest was organized in Tel Aviv. The police
responded by violently arresting several activists they identified as
leaders in the community. The Real News’ Lia Tarachansky spoke with
protesters and +972 Magazine’s Haggai Matar.
