Hundreds of Israelis and members of the American Jewish community protested Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Monday arrival at the San Jose San Francisco airport, chanting "shame" and holding signs against his government's judicial overhaul plan that has polarized the country. 

Demonstrators also awaited Netanyahu outside San Francisco's Signia hotel, where he is staying for his one-day visit to the city. They kept demonstrating later that day as he met with X owner Elon Musk.
