    First time round it started over housing which was reasonable and people had sympathy for it but then we got more and more people coming out all of them with their own demands some were reasonable and others were either unreasonable or not practical. Bibi listened to the protestors and he set up Trajtenberg who reported back supporting some demands and disagreeing with others and Bibi agreed to implement the report in full so he has done his part. Now we got Leef and her palls out on the streets again and like last time she does not officially represent anybody but herself and all these things she is protesting over are issues that concern her personally like the fact the electric prices of gone up and and as usual its the government at fault, she doesn't take into account that thanks to the arab spring Egypt has switched off the gas and the power companies are having to use more expensive fuels... simple economics which sadly she doesn't have much of a grasp of. Leef needs to get into her head these protests have served their purpose and its time to let the ELECTED government sort out the problems not this rabble and especially not the unelected Leef. I have lost all sympathy with this lot who seem to be out protesting for the sake of protesting now.
