    I was astounded to read in Haaretz on 13 January that several Israeli food products are often 100% more expensive in supermarkets in Israel than their counterparts in Britain and the US. This is absolutely scandalous. Similarly hotel prices in Israel far exceed the equivalent overseas. What about the soaring prices of apartments? Why is the public so apathetic and accepting of these grave social injustices? The answer lies in your editorial in the same Haaretz issue by Aner Shalev. For the past eight years, not only was the late prime minister Ariel Sharon in coma; so is the rest of the country. Wake up citizens of Israel, wake up to these intolerable social conditions. Where are the protests, the threats of boycotts? The answer is nowhere. The people of Israel are still in coma.
