    The people of Israel are not asking for the kind of social welfare that does indeed cripple nations via unsustainable social programs. All WE are asking for is a true, free and open market, allowing foreign companies to enter the Israeli consumer goods market, which will allow for true competition in the market and in turn will make prices of said consumer goods reflect their true cost in reality. Furthermore, a more active oversight mechanism that ensures that the cartel families in Israel do not continue to abuse the system with prices fixing and other corrupt acts. The enemies of the people are indeed the cartels and social elites, as they are given a free hand to figuratively "rape" the masses, thanks to favorable legislation and policies introduced by their puppet politicians. I for one am glad that the people have awoken from their indifference and are rising up against this abuse.

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
