It started out about housing prices and alot of people had sympathy over that so Bibi agreed to do something about it. Then they started making all kinds of other demands some reasonable others not so reasonable so Bibi decided to set up Trajtenberg that idea pleased the protestors then when the report came in despite the fact it supported some of their demands and then even though it involved spending lot of money Bibi accepted it in full. Daphne Leef and the students rejected it claiming it didn't go far enough for their liking and wanted more protests although last time only a a handful of hardliners turned out. Now Leef us unhappy about electric prices etc ( prices have gone up because of Egypt turning off the gas ) so she wants more protests. The problem with the hardliners and Leef especially is they think because of the turnout last time round they are in charge and if they order Bibi to do something he is obligated to do it. A housing protest has turned into a free for all. we do not want a revolution which is change everything because we expect something for nothing. Some of the original demands were reasonable and Trajtenberg supported that and went further in some cases but just because some people DEMAND does not entitle them to changes. Revolutions rarely address the problems Bibi handled it right with a committee which took into account politics, demands and economics and came up with a compromise based on whats economically practical and whats politically reasonable, thats the responsible and democratic way of doing things going out into the streets and protesting might be much more romantic but at the end of the day all you have is a rabble who don't understand about reality or money... this is why we have elected governments and we don't allow protestors to decide how to run the country.
