    These demonstrations may just expose alot more of the rot that exists at the core than anyone had anticipated... which may lead it to expand its objectives to much much more than just housing. Meanwhile, following these headlines and stories, don't we get the striking feeling that this movement is following a very similar path to those of the so called "Arab spring"? Expanding instead of ebbing to the government's response. Anyone wondering if this isn't 'the big one', where years of silent Israeli frustration explodes to bring down the monster that has Israel firmly in its grip? Never know...lol...could be the whole structure of the Israeli government is balanced precariously at the edge these days...with profound changes looming on the not too distant horizon! I wonder who the IDF's going to side with...considering how well represented the settlers are within its ranks; the people or the government? A split perhaps? This might well be the beginning of a rather nasty episode in Israeli history!
