perhaps you missed the point - what is important is not the diversity of the economy, but rather the diversity of the Israeli population - one that must be protected through human and social rights. This is not about a grass-roots movement, but rather a demand that the institutional setting reflects and responds to the reality on the ground - a ground that Bibi and his mob don't tread, and a ground that cannot be 'outgrown' as it is the very ideological foundation of the State. As a technological superpower and a self-professed democracy, Israel also has the power to redefine the rules of the game towards a Social Democracy - to enforce its ideals of citizenship and to redistribute equitably. The PM's ideas are to enforce the stronghold of the plutarchy, constructed over the years as national finances disappear into the private pockets of warlords and crooks.
