Opponents of the planned new government will protest outside the Knesset, Israel's Parliament, tonight. The Knesset itself isn't sitting tonight and members will have gone home for the weekend.
So far, I haven't seen any moves to organise a protest or march on Sunday, the day the Knesset has to vote on the new government.
That obviously makes a Jan 6 type storming of the Knesset during the vote on Sunday unlikely because the mass numbers probably won't be there.
Perhaps a small number of more-radical protesters will try to get into the Knesset tonight, but they're likely to be stopped and arrested, and there's no sitting tonight anyway.

Celina Truck Stop isn't real, of course. The whole thing is viral marketing for the T shirts. But I also feel like a party pooper for saying so.
I mean, they even link the T-shirt on the second tweet of the thread.
In my defence, I'd probably have played along if they weren't selling something.

This is an insightful piece. But it also demonstrates a problem with the Biden Doctrine: the US-China threat is not identical with the challenge to democracies being posed by autocracies. These are two different things.
There is overlap, of course. China's success could be a model to the non-democratic world. But the authoritarians in Russia, Turkey, Hungary and Poland don't look to China for their model.
Is the issue that China is the poster-child for authoritarian *success*? Which side of this great divide do the US-aligned Gulf states fall on?

I'm joining a small protest of Ethiopians outside Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, asking for support for the Tirgray in Ethiopia
Holding banners and Tirgray flags, the protesters describe the massacres carried out by the Ethiopian Government and Amhara militias in Tirgray Region as a genocide
This woman's banner says "in the middle, on the side, where is Israel?"

Ron Watkins is pushing yet another election fraud theory. This time he's saying Runbeck, the printing company, deliberately sent out ballots to fake addresses, waited for them to be returned and then illegally voted with them.

Later, he deleted the message that named Runbeck.
I hope @RunbeckElection is aware that they're about to become the next target of the everlasting election conspiracy theory.
Oh, I'm late to this. Watkins has been pushing the Runbeck conspiracy for a couple of weeks already.

What happens next in Israeli politics? The immediate fight will be over when a vote to seat the new government will happen. Usually it'd be as soon as possible, but the Knesset Speaker is a Likud MK and can delay things as long as legally possible.
How long? That's the argument. The law says when a new Government is formed, "the Speaker of the Knesset shall notify the Knesset thereof, and set a sitting for the purpose of forming the Government, within SEVEN DAYS from the day of the notification."
But Likud seems to be arguing that seven days doesn't mean seven days, and they can actually push the vote forward to the week after next. Not sure what their argument is, but it might be this: "What has to be within seven days? The sitting, or setting the date of the sitting?"

We should all be worried about this. Suggests his grip on reality is loosening even as his grip on the GOP is stronger than ever.
The United States is one Trump statement away from a civil war. That's been true since November, and if Twitter hadn't taken away his account it might have actually happened late January. But it's still true now. If he calls for people to rise up, they will.
Most immediate danger: The fake 'audits'.
