JERUSALEM: As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu outlined emergency housing reforms in a televised address, many of the protesters who had prompted the measures by camping out in Israeli cities twirled their hands in derision.

Whats going on really? Does anyone got more info on this?
No one expects the kind of upheaval that has rocked the Arab world as citizens rise against authoritarian rulers, and few see a serious challenge to Israel’s conservative ruling coalition.

But the urgency of Netanyahu’s response on Tuesday suggested worry at the top as middle-class Israelis, burdened by high taxes and wearing military conscription, mobilise over a range of grievances they blame on the government.

William James once spoke about the "moral equivalent of war", which essentially means, the moral impetus that galvanizes and unifies a people towards a particular goal. Gay rights, Womans lib, Anti-War being an example of this.

In certan situations when another group poses a threat, in this particular case, the Orthodox Jews & Settlers, pretty much the only way for the leftists to oppose such a threat is to create a moral equivalent of war (to galvanize the masses) - but, they must know that no moral equivalent of war will ever match the numinosity of the religious expectation that has seized the hearts of many Israelis. For instance, the international director of the Temple Institute Chaim Richman has called for a "peoples coalition for the rebuilding of the holy temple". What social idea can match the intensity of this ancient concept? Nothing!! It is pathetic watching the leftists squirm about searching for something to distract the secular/leftist Israeli.

On the other hand, housing prices are a problem in Israel. Is it as big a deal as they are making of it? Not at all. Infact, Israel currently has its lowest unemployment rate in its 63 year history at 6.2 %. So, while it is reasonable and fair for Israelis to be complaining about the high housing prices, the leftist intellectuals and media are making a bigger issue of it than it actually is. This is a means to neutralize the growing religious sentiment in Israel, which seems a few years away from reaching critical mass.

Additionally, These leftist intellectuals (and for the ignoramuses amongst the Israel bashers here. HaAretz is a FAR left wing newspaper. Hebrew University is a FAR FAR left wing university which has always opposed Secular zionism and ESPECIALLY religious zionism. It calls for the same things the UN calls for. A one world government that transcends religion (ie one world religion) language, nationality etc) are claiming the government is subsidizing Settler activities (which is a gross exagerration. At the very most, the government offers settlers reduced fares for transportation between Israel proper and the west bank, and this is HARDLY a strain on Israels economy.)....
