Last week, Member of Knesset Matan Kahana proposed a plan according to which a unity government led by Binyamin Netanyahu will be established for two years, after which Netanyahu will retire from political life and Israel will go to new elections.

Kahana's proposal to meet with Netanyahu drew criticism from leaders of the protest against judicial reform, with Shikma Bressler being the first to attack him, writing: "Those who do not actively work against the destruction of the state are involuntarily partners in the destruction of the state."

Last night, after a few days of tension between the two, Kahana requested permission from Bressler to address the protest in Kfar Saba, publishing the words he intends to say there.

Even in this move by Kahana, he faced criticism, this time from another leader of the protest – Roee Neuman – who called on Kahana to "shut his mouth and keyboard and stop interfering."

"Hey Matan," Neuman wrote to the Knesset member. "At the beginning of this journey, we made a decision not to invite incumbent politicians to speak at Kaplan, and there's a very simple reason for it: we know you. We know you and your opinions that change according to the weather and the daily polls. We know that your commitment to your seat comes before democratic values. That's why you clash with Shikma Bressler because Philber convinced you that it's good for you."

Neuman continued and wrote: "We are waging a war based on the soul of the State of Israel, on its democratic values, on equality and freedom – not on points in Philber's polls. So, you won't be at Kaplan not only because you're on the imaginary fence that no longer exists, but because for very long weeks, you have been harming the struggle, going against the brave Israeli men and women who are fighting for the essence of democracy."

In conclusion, Neuman turned to Kahana and wrote: "Do one good thing, instead of writing pathetic tweets that invite yourself to speak, shut your mouth and the keyboard, stop disrupting the important struggle for the state's future. Right now, that will be the greatest benefit you can achieve."
