    There are numerous interviews on YouTube with many Israeli protesters, see for yourself. I was shocked to see how many are demanding regime change of the WHOLE government, not just Bibi. Some have renamed Rothschild Blvd to Tahir Square. What? I thought this was about the economy and equal standards, but I guess they are wanting to change the government as well. Wow !!! These protests are much more significant then I thought. The Guardian website says they (protesters) are going to have more then one million marching in 50 cities in a few weeks. I don't think they plan on going anywhere anytime soon. I hope that the government does not try to stall them and not listening to their requests. One of the main threads of complaint is that when a new government gets elected, nothing changes on the ground. Several have stated that they want a new government installed that will treat everyone equally in Israel. Go to YouTube and watch some of their requests, much more then just economics.
