Tens of thousands protest soaring housing prices and demand a welfare state in 10 Israeli citiesAn estimated 50,000 demonstrators swept through the streets of Tel Aviv on Saturday night to rail against soaring housing prices in Israel. Tens of thousands of others took to the streets in nine other cities across in the Jewish state, voicing similar sentiments, said Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, who also provided the crowd estimate in Tel Aviv.
Saturday's protests were the latest and largest in a series of organized demonstrations, led by members of Israel's middle class, over high cost of living that have posed a serious challenge to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Activists have set up tent cities across the country to demand affordable housing and protest against what they describe as social injustice.
Demanding government action, many of the Tel Aviv marchers Saturday held up signs that read "the people demand social justice", "welfare state now" and "when the government is against the people, the people are against the government."

I did not know that the Democrats, ACORN, and SEIU were exporting their crap to Israel.Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.-- Anonymous
Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.
The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.

Maybe they'll leave here for Israel and then we can actually fix the problems here. They can take a their welfare recipients and hoodrats also.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
