    Many critics are upset that Occupation isn't front and center - even claiming mentioning of the word is "banned". This isn't true. I've heard "end the occupation" mentioned in so many words in the protests outside of Tel Aviv. When impoverished MIzrahim say they have "nothing left to lose" and "won't let their children serve in the army" - that's ANTI-OCCUPATION. When poor and middle class people reject moving to the territories because they know it is a waste of money and bleeds the country dry, that's ANTI-OCCUPATION. It may not be the theoretical or principled opposition that Ashkenazi social rebels claim is missing, but it's how things play out in the real world. Either way, mention it...stop complaining!
