these spoiled north tel avivian adult adolescents want to feel like they are part of a worldwide radical social movement like in Greece or Spain. problem is our economy is actually in pretty good shape. no bank bubble, no housing bubble, no massive unemployment, no gargantuan government debt for future generations to pay off etc. So these whining socialist rioters need some free summer entertainment. well the police's job is to protect private property from vandals, to keep the peace for the normal citizen so they can enjoy a violence free public space. These rioters have no right to destroy property or disrupt transportation or vandalize private property. let them go home to their rich parents in ramat aviv and hod hasharon and march around with signs complaining that they are not given enough free stuff from other peoples hard earnings. if they break the law they should go to jail just like Katzav and Deri and Hirshson et. al.
