Jerusalem Post columnist Sara Honig reveals that many of the protesters are not the ones suffering poverty. That is apparently why they have the time to protest. The young people aren't busy working to cover their expenses. And they're not the type to rinse their dirty laundry in the WC sinks.
To me it all looks like anarchy.
And we should all remember what happens to governments/countries/systems that give citizens basic services for under cost. All the cottage cheese protest has done has lowered the price at the expense of the dairies that now claim it doesn't pay to produce it. Israel is a capitalist country. Socialism/communism can't work and hasn't.
The USSR provided heat and opera to keep the citizens happy. Now the country doesn't exist. It's known as the FSU, Former Soviet Union.
Bring your gripe and blame the government.
That's not democracy.
