A panel hosted by Yesh Din Executive Director Lior Amichai, with Zulat president Zehava Galon, together with Adv. Michael Sfard and Machsom Watch about the true face of the new Knesset following Israel’s March 2021 elections.
Zehava Galon: “The Israeli Knesset is going to have a solid right-wing majority that will push forward a conservative, racist, destructive agenda. I have been taking part in public/political struggles in Israel for all of my adult life, and I know we cannot afford to despair. When you despair, you cede the battlefield to the rival. The rival does not despair. It brims with energy. It has set up research institutes and think tanks that work to expound its vision among MKs, ministers, and government officials. For too long we neglected this aspect, which has resulted in only one voice being heard. Our goal in Zulat is to conceptualizethe breaches in our rights to influencers and decision makers in Israel, many of whom are addicted to despair. We believe that a different future is possible.”
