    What we have here is not true Capitalism, we want true competition, abolish cartels, stop lobbying. Hopefully, this will push Netanyahu out from the lobbyist grips. We are aware that the the leaders of this protests are extreme left - cooperating with Palestinian uprising and against military service for moral reasons. This is why the size of the protest will not be translated to a shift in the Knesset, merely a reshuffle of left-wing seats, much to the chagrin of left media. The problem if you don't tell people what you really stand for, don't expect them to vote for you when the day come. It will also give Netanyahu an opportunity to perform "election year economy" - after all, the media asked for more welfare which precisely this kind of economy. Everybody is welcome to protest. We need a healthier economy, without stopping being Zionists.
