Most Israelis are not for returning to Socialism, but are discontent with unfairness in what is today called Capitalism - but in essence is unfair regulations and laws, destined to protect Cartels, and allowing them access to our pension funds, without them being forced to repay their debts. The issue of housing is not unanimous as many Israelis think people who took enormous mortgages created their own problem. Most Israelis are also for Netanyahu's approach toward Palestinians. The hard core of this revolution is Communist regarding the economy, and post-Zionists regarding Palestinian issue. Although the current published motives of protesters are supported by many Israelis, people here will not turn anti-Zionists just for paying less at the grocery store. Until a party which is right-wing concerning Palestinians and supporting a fair Capitalism - fight Cartels, and force riches to pay their debts to pension funds - there is not much hope for change. The outcome will be some temporary economic relief for poor people, which will be followed by foreign policy issues making everybody forget about all this. At the end of the day, Israelis will be confronted between two choices: giving up Western Wall and Temple mount, or paying less for Cottage cheese, and they will choose Jerusalem. It is sad that Israeli left-wing main issue is, and will continue to be, giving up historical Jerusalem to Palestinians. This phony Capitalism needs to be abolished, not for returning to Socialism, but for a truly competitive economy, in which all (not only families with mortgages - but investors borrowing from pension funds) people are forced to return their debts. I also think that the idea of Limited Company should be illegal, but this is really hopeless.
