A second disabled Israeli war veteran has died of his wounds, 10 days after setting himself on fire near Tel Aviv, hospital officials say.

All is not well in the Jewish state it seems.

Wheelchair user Akiva Mafi doused his body in petrol at a bus stop in protest over welfare cuts and living costs.

The 45-year-old is the second victim to have died from self-immolation in recent weeks in Israel.

Moshe Silman set himself alight during a mass demonstration on 14 July against the country's spiralling living costs.

He was the first Israeli to take such an extreme step to protest social injustice and financial hardship.

A spokesperson for Tel HaShomer hospital said Mr Mafi had died of severe injuries sustained after he set himself on fire on 22 July.

Passers-by had managed to put out the flames but Mr Mafi suffered burns to 80% of his body.

It seems much like everywhere else, the people of Israel are tired of being treated like chattle by the elite Scum Bags who own their economy.

It's funny apparently Israel has some very real fiscal issues it needs to deal with, yet it is wanting to start conflicts with other nations. Don't they know wars cost money?

What say you ATS? Are these protests the beginning of the Jewish people removing their Tyranical government?

Nobody likes an oppressive government that feeds the hands of their Globalist Friends instead of the people.

Jewish folk are no different than you and I in their quest for peace and stable living. Apparently Netenyahu isn't providing that right now.

You need subterfuge, you need another Country, intervening with hidden troops, you need a false flag.

At least by ATS's definition.

After the "Bouazizi" incident in Tunisia, it seems it is gaining popularity, and not only in Muslim Countries.


And these are just the ones I remember.

Wouldn't it be poetic if Israel was the country that started the world wide revolution movement?

Now that would be a beautiful day in the world's history.
