Being spit at, shoved, pelted with things, called “traitors” and attacked with pepper spray – all these have been the lot of hundreds of Israelis who have been demonstrating in recent months against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at intersections, on bridges, in squares and at Balfour Street in Jerusalem. These phenomena are nothing new, and have accompanied the protests from the start.
