To those of us who are interested in the welfare of Israel but view it from afar, it would be very informative to inderstand what these protests are all about. All we can see is that it appears that costs are going up but salaries are not keeping pace. Can Haaretz provide some background articles describing the issues; what options the government has to rectify the problem; and what the protestors are hoping to achieve that would be realistic and feasible? What is it that Netanyahu could do but is not doing?
