    This article should be required reading for all the "talkbackers" who mock those demonstrating for social justice. If they recognize the actuality of Israeli life, they should be ashamed and disgusted with themselves. Given the situation here, the economy simply must be managed to assure a more equitable division of resources. My family and friends find that we are forced by the great need here to give more tzedaka than we can afford while the state does much less than it must. Comments calling on the working poor to work harder are simply cruel and unfeeling. Even two people working full time at minimum wage cannot raise two or three children with due human respect.
