    Where are the candidates with commitment to both peace and social welfare? Akiva Eldar is posing a burning question here that is at the core of the disillusionment in the country and which needs answers! There must be such candidates among the hundreds of thousands of protesters who are now demanding a change in society who still have dreams and ideals and who still ardently believe in the power of the people to be able to be the catalyst for that change. Now is the time for those dreamers and idealists to step forward and to embrace public service in order to fill that gaping void in Israeli politics that has such a crippling effect on all aspects of society.
