Three former IDF senior commanders traveled to Washington on Monday in a bid to warn American legislators and other decision-makers against the judicial overhaul advanced by the Netanyahu government. The three represent hundreds of Israeli reservists seeking to lobby the Biden administration to intervene in what they describe as a coup.
Col. (res.) Yoav Rosenberg, formerly head of the research division of Israeli military intelligence, discussed the letter with Al-Monitor. "We intend to present a letter addressed to President Joe Biden and to anyone capable of influencing policy," he read from the document. "It is signed by hundreds of reserve officers and asks the Americans to use their influence to thwart the moves of the governing coalition. We need your immediate help."
