    Maybe, maybe not. The assessment of what has happened so far is correct, not necessarily the view of the future. The ultra-Orthodox have not been to the streets in protests of 2011. To some extent, the situation was not bad for them. Received state privileges and do not care about anyone other than themselves. Ultra-Orthodox are hated by most. If the resources are removed from them to some extent been channeled into the middle class, the ultra-Orthodox will protest alone, when changing from poverty to misery. They will not find sympathy or solidarity, except in part of the small left who they always fought. Some crumbs for the middle class, the catharsis to see the ultra-Orthodox losing privileges, the frustration and dismay to see that the protests resulted not anything concrete (and Iran, of course) should be sufficient to prevent a repeat of protests like the 2011. "There is no revolution without a revolutionary party, there is no revolutionary party without revolutionary ideology" (Lenin). The 2011 protests came to nothing because there were just a bunch of people unhappy without political program, who refused to have a program, because there was a program able to drive the Protestants. I do not believe there are now different historical conditions.
