Israel Has No 'City Square' in Which to Protest

There are plenty of reason to take to the streets but you won't see Tahrir or maidan happening here in Israel.

The word maidan, “city square,” made a long journey from the Arab Middle East via the Turkish-Persian route to the heart of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Indeed, Cairo's Maidan Tahrir, Liberty Square, is now a sort of synonym for Maidan Nezalezhnosti – Independence Square, where the new Ukrainian revolution erupted.
