    Daphne Leef who was not elected to run the country or to officially represent the Israeli public on the issue of government reforms thinks that because the protestors demanded something then they must get it and if they don't then they have been betrayed and must go out and protest again until they get all the things they demanded but didn't get. They were never going to get everything they demanded and if they did then they are nothing but fools who understand less about economics than a brick wall. These fools would have us become the next Greece if they had their way, Leef already said during the protests how much she admires the Greeks who are protesting against the government cuts because the country is bankrupt. What Trajtenberg recommended might not have been everything that was demanded but I think that he did address most issues and if Bibi adopts all of his recommendations then I think that will be enough to satisfy most Israelis although the hardliners like Daphne Leef who just wants to bring down the government will never be satisfied and as she was not elected or appointed to be any kind of official representative of the people then she should be told to go back to her tent and moan about how unfair life is to herself where nobody has to listen to her.
