    The combo it's offering now is: "You can protest with us against economic policies of the government, but then you must also protest for giving back Western Wall to Palestinians, and for a Socialistic regime". This is much more than what most people are supporting. I am for making rich pay their debts, and fighting cartels for real - but certainly not for socialism. I am also for making peace by giving parts of Judea and Samaria to Palestinians, who will be able to make their state there by adding Jordan to it. But, I believe our rights to live here are historical, not a reparation for the Holocaust. This means that Western Wall should belong to Israel as a symbol of these historical rights. So someone like me is out of the protests, which will then get most of its power from the left wing of the population, making it even more isolated. Pity.
