    In a democracy a handful of politicians are elected to run the country the way they think is best for a limited period and then at the next election the public decides if they think they have done a good job or not. Its mob rule where UNELECTED individuals take to the streets and dictate terms. This is not going to be a revolution, it might will lead to a change of government at the next election and result in them getting SOME but not ALL of their demands met but that's not a revolution. What happened in Egypt where they got rid of a man who had been running the country single handed for 30 years but in Israel when all your demanding is more money be spent on social welfare you hardly have a revolution on your hands. Fact is despite all its problems there is nothing in Israel thats so terrible that would actually justify a full scale revolution.
