However, it also appeared to fuel the protesters’ view that Netanyahu was appealing to his religious allies rather than addressing the broader economic woes of wider society.

Organizers of the grassroots protests have called them a movement to save democracy. They say the government’s plan to weaken the Supreme Court will undermine the country’s system of checks and balances and damage Israel’s democracy.

Supporters of judicial reform say it is necessary to rein in an overzealous Supreme Court.

Netanyahu delayed the proposed reforms in March, but protest organizers say they want to continue demonstrating before the plans are scrapped. (Associated Press)
