Of course ordinary citizens feel estranged from government, because the government in Israel is uniquely non-representative in the world. Unlike every other country, the citizens of Israel don't directly elect any of the members of the Knesset. You don't have a Knesset member that represents you. There is no local Knesset member office to call, nobody to talk to. The key is that there be exactly one representative per district. If they divide the country into districts, and have a few representatives per district, again you're back to the current situation in which nobody actually represents you personally, and there's nobody a district can throw out of the Knesset if they're unhappy.
