I'm sceprical. the political order only has to play lip services to the protesters. The Knesset quietly went on summer vacation after a year or racist law making and with the peace process in a deadlock. Only when a serious political movement is formed out of the protest movement, something might move. But then what political party will that be? a center right or a center left one? Pro peace or pro occupation? Israelis now suddenly forget that they voted in this Knesset and Bibi won through elections, elections held among them, the people, Within the Israeli people is a big majority of religious and nationalist fundamentals and when there are elections next time - sooner or later, doesn't really matter - they will vote Likud, israel beitenu, kadima and Shas. I strongly believe that only when the occupation of Palestine is ended, the nationalist and religious parties will loose there agenda and the conservative majority of Israel will be able to really focus on social justice. Until that moment, there are enough Israelis that continue the old mantras of 'we are at war',' they want to throw us in the sea', 'Judea and Samaria are eternal Jewish land', bla, bla, bla' War language is far stronger then language of social justice. So don't be surprised that the Bibi government will us any stupid excuse for starting a war. Until now, Bibi will have to do with the UN declaration of Palestinian independence as a scapegoat, but maybe Hezbollah or Hamas will help him out soon. (No wonder that Abbas is hammering so strongly on making the September declaration a NON violent thing. He knows that Bibi is all to happy to start an Intifadah) I hope I'm wrong, though....
