    Tycoons are not hated worldwide, in countries like the US they are respected for making it to the top. Mitt Romney was is hundreds of millions and he nearly won the election, if he had been in Israel nobody would have been interested in his policy all that would happen is he would be condemned for his wealth. Tycoons in Israel are hated not because of anything they have done wrong as individuals but because people are jealous of the fact that one man can spend more in a day without even noticing than most people earn in a year, we think its not fair so they are convenient scapegoats. The social protests created the image of the evil oppressive tycoons who get rich at our expense and the mainstream left picked up on that and expanded it. We should respect the rich because we are not better then them just because they are rich and we are poor. Let them enjoy their wealth and don't criticise how they spend it just because we don't have it. Remember unlike everybody else the rich can afford to leave the country along with every penny they own then the top earners won't be paying any taxes and so the rest of us will have it even harder so don't persecute these people drive them out. Lets be like in America where we get on with our lives let them get on with their lives and end this hatred of the rich that the left has created.
