Taking to the Streets: Israeli Protest Movements Part 3
The Longest War: Israel, Lebanon and the Palestinian Refugees The 1982 “Operation Peace for Galilee” war in Lebanon resulted in an 18 year presence there and one event, more than others, brought Israelis onto the streets – the massacre by Israel’s Christian Phalangist ally in the Sabra and Shatila Palestinian refugee camps. Some 400,000 Israelis demonstrated in Tel Aviv, demanding the resignation of political and military leaders, a commission of inquiry and the withdrawal from Lebanon. In addition, the resignation of a senior officer in the early stages of the war, the Kahan Commission and the Four Mothers protest movement show the grappling with complex realities.
