As the army fights Hamas in Gaza, ad-hoc right-wing militias organized through social media take to the streets to fight the 'war at home.'

It's a regular, scorching Saturday night in central Tel Aviv. The cafes are thronged, rocket threat or not. At Habima Square, a few dozen left-wing activists are protesting against Operation Protective Edge. Dozens of right-wing counter-demonstrators show up.
