    or maybe the government is correct in that the really important issues here are the fact that hundreds of thousands of israelis can't get a full night's sleep because rockets are being fired at them... just maybe, maybe, expensive housing in the middle of tel aviv is not the top item on the agenda. just maybe the protesters should change their tune for a duration and demand that the army go into gaza or maybe even sinia in order to stop terrorists from terrorising their brothers. But maybe they don't care as long as they have a nice life in tel aviv and enjoy spending their money on prime location rent, cofee shops and bars. Oh the irony if they should get their wish and Judes and samaria are handed to the arabs. Then it will be them not sleeping at night whilst hamas or the PA both claim "its not us" and the smaller terrorist groups take pot shots at the tel avivian's roof top jacuzzis.
