Over 300,000 protesters in Israel demanding social justice

Israeli Jerusalem Post quoted Channel 2 News as saying that over 280,000 people turned out for the demonstration in Tel Aviv, and over 300,000 people were believed to be protesting throughout Israel chanting “The nation demands social justice!”

This is the third consecutive Saturday as part of massive demonstrations over the high cost of living in Israel .

The Israeli Student Union announced that more than 50 buses have transported students from academic institutions across the country to Tel Aviv so they could attend the massive march and rally.

Head of the Student Union Itsik Shmueli, speaking at the Tel Aviv rally, said “Israeli students have been trying to bring about change for over three weeks now. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis have been in the streets with us, telling one another that we love the state with all our hearts. Maybe the state is ready to give up on us, but we are not ready to give up on it, on the dream to have homes, to raise children in them.

“We, the students, the youth, are here today to proclaim: We have the power to change,” Shmueli said.

He added, “We are not talking about a change in leadership. We don’t need to change the nationally elected parliamentary coalition. We, the youth, are demanding a change in the cruel economic system. We demand a humane economy rather than a predatory one. We require an economy that recognizes distinct economic hardships and is not only interested in numbers.

“We need more of a balance between a free economy and a personalized one,” Shmueli told crowds in front of Tel Aviv’s government complex. “We need to make a concerted effort to reduce socioeconomic gaps, and to do a better job addressing the basic needs of citizens.”

Social justice rallies were held across northern Israel on Saturday night as well.

    they can protest all they like peacefuly or not but at the end of the day these pple are living on a land they have no right to….

    all their govts since zionist state have been created have taken the diceptive and then blatently violant process…

    their “peaceful” state i can digest when they are not so ‘peaceful’ all the time!

    i do not want their example of “peaceful” process.

    • 5thDrawer

      I disagree with you completely that they have no right to the land.

      • antar2011

        the way palestine was given to the zionist who live all the way in europe does not mean they have actually a right to the land. and of cours you of all pple should not buy the “promised land” pathetic excuse.

        • You don;t have to buy the “promised land” story though it is mentioned in 5th sura of Qur’an if I am not mistaken. They don;t need to have a religious argument. They have 4,000 years of history with their land and according to international law since the 1920’s it is theirs too.

          By the way there never was a country called palistine with a palestinian king, language or currency.
          “Article 24 of the 1964 PLO charter says the following: “This Organization does not exercise any territorial sovereignty over the

          West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, on the Gaza Strip or in

          the Himmah Area. Its activities will be on the national popular level in

          the liberational, organizational, political and financial fields.”AND”There
          is no such country [as Palestine]! ‘Palestine’ is a term the Zionists
          invented! There is no Palestine in the Bible. Our country was for
          centuries part of Syria.”

          – Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi, a local Arab leader, to the Peel Commission, 1937″AND”Zuhair Mushin, the PLO military commander and member of the PLO Executive Committee, says,“There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and
          Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political
          reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity… yes, the
          existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical

          purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the

          continuing battle against Israel”.(Dutch daily Trouw, March 1977)Now, start being honest people.  We cannnot manage relations with neighbors in the region through dishonesty…”kazav”,” kazav”.

          • antar2011

            the jews and the arabs lived peacefully along side each other for donkeys years, each had their own piece of land and were coexisting peacefully beside each other.

            it was only when the zionist after ww1 who lived all the way in europe with european lifestyle, anscestries and roots decided to impose the tanakh’s will on everyone and claimed palestine as their god given holy promised land and to hell to the poeple who already living there because you know, they are arabs they don’t matter.
            who do zionist think they are to impose their will on pple living in palestine who’s fault is to welcome them in to share the lands they live in? the unthankful thugs… the jews, muslims and christians lived in peace because Islam recognises other groups and religions can inhabit any land but they must not rob it though or exclude the indigenous owners.

            the Americans have no right now to move back to Britain even if they wanted to, neither do Australians except by abiding by British legislation. There are claims in Australia that aboriginals should have some form of ownership or perhaps oversight on much of their ancestral land such as the city of Perth.

            but bare in mind that these people were there less than a few generations ago. This is very recent history which directly impacts on today. Still, it is not like Australian govt will give them Perth outright cos of their claims, good as they may.

            In Palestine, the Jews have no such claim except those who already lived there. If Indonesians migrated en masse to central Australia and then declared a state there plus in other well populated indonesian areas such as Glen Iris to Dandenong for instance, that wouldn’t be ok, even if they said and proved that 2000 years ago they used to live here but were kicked out.

            Now, you have Palestinian arabs exiled from their land and many can still remember it first hand. They don’t have another home and have a direct physical as well as spiritual connection to their homes (which is more than the Euro Jews had). justice requires that they return home and live in peace.

            And if Jews lived there already, how could they ‘get it back’? that’s like saying the Jews own the land and no one else? how about the majority of arabs who lived there for generations upon generations? Does that then mean that Jews (and Israel, require all of eretz israel judeah sumariah etc as Jewish land to the exclusion, or at least subjugation, of others? because if the zionists think Jews have ownership of the land God ‘promised’ them for all time, then that means all of it right?. so what’s with the two state thingy?

            it seems like the zionist agenda is not going anywhere?… the way it is, is that its all or nothing if God has given it to the jews for ever. so the zionists must claim it all. if they are happy with just some of it being Jewish, then it always was. the 10-15% Jews that lived there prior to that practiced and owned their land so it could be said the Jews had their land. the rest is just robbery with a ‘history argument’stuck on to it.

            yes the ‘promied land” had been mentioned in the Quran, but you did not state why has the Allah mentioned it in the Quran and what was the lesson for banni israel…if you are going to refer to the Quran then refer everything on that topic not just pick and choose what you want to support you flaud argument.

            so let me get this straiht, you are telling me that because there was no political borders, the majority arabs who lived in the land around beit al maqdes or al quds has no claim to land and so the zionist who came all the way from europe to initially live besides their fellow “brothers” of arab jews and their ‘cousins’in muslim and christian arabs can decide this is the land that was mentioned in the tanakh and this is our own regardless who lived there?…you agree with me this is nonsensical.

            and the only ones who have been dishonest are the euro-jews/zionist who imposed something that has nothing to do with the poeple living in palestine earlier last century with the help of world powers.

        • 5thDrawer

          Antar – IF something was promised by a god then one might conclude it would simply ‘be’. Like the planet itself. So I am not talking from a point of ancient scripture.
          BUT they HAVE the right. They WON it. They may have been ‘given’ some space initially, but they had to fight to keep it. All countries on this planet exist in name because of war. And as many have noted, ‘Possession is 9 points of the law’.

          Dragging up the past again, I Recommend that you read at least the verified Summaries in Wikipedia:
          ‘1947-48 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine’
          and
          ‘Lausanne Conference 1949’ – which concluded, ‘Ultimately all the proposals made by Israel were rejected by the Arab’s countries, and the conference failed.’

          I agree they all lived as peacefully together (as possible humans can) for a long time. The problem I see is that during a World War someone decided to make an ‘official spot’ for Jews (which some want now for ‘the others’ by the way) and a bunch of huge kingdoms didn’t like the idea. There is Arab unwillingness to accept a Jewish ‘national presence’ in the Middle East. Was then, is now. When it wasn’t official, no-one cared.
           To the ‘controlling people’ of that time, the territory of palestine seemed a logical place to make a small spot for Jews. When they moved some in, the neighbours began to bitch.
          They started a ‘civil war’. (Something like Lebanon’s, many different factions involved.)
          Most ‘refugees’ left willingly at that time … what ‘thinking’ person likes to be living in the middle of a war, after all? Some were also ‘expelled’ later – nothing new in that either in the history of man. Yet it wasn’t a complete expulsion.

          Then there was another war when UN made it official. And again they won. What else can I say? (20 years of ‘peace’)
          Israel didn’t have Gaza or Golan until they were attacked AGAIN in 1967 – and again they WON. To the winner go the spoils, as we say. If one is going to make a war, one should also consider what could happen if one loses.

          If some human ideology (belief) prevents negotiation and any way to settle disputes, then you can’t blame the one who constantly needs to defend, and does it successfully.

          • antar2011

            the past will always follow the zionist until they ive back the land they stole…once justice is served then there should be a settlement of some sort because at the end of the day the euro-jews have lived there now for more then 60 years. but to keep it as it is..the zionist taking more and more land, killing innosents, trangressing all sorts of human rights, then it won’t go away….the past will be on their back…don’t be frustrated man this is reality…

            it does nto matter what the UN at that time said or did, it was not a just action because they should have known that these poeple’s numbers would grow and that they would need more land but they were happy to get them off their back because of a racist factor too.

            there is a very good reason why the arabs who helped welcomed the jews on their land escaping oppression in europe to refuse every UN resolution….ba3den the zionist state has its fair share of refusing UN resolution itself….

            your last statement shows your true colours… zionists like you use this excuse of defense to kill, oppress, emprison all they like innosent pple who have nothing to do with their leaders….all they want is to have their land back…

            to reason this as self defense goes against the very thing you believe in…respect for difference….

            i feel disgusted.

          It seems to me the ‘racisim’ factor is a HUGE thing. Everyone wants to know their blood-lines – and then argues about that too. But I already talked about that. I’m disgusted by the fact no-one wants to actually talk peace – between ALL the tribes.

          Oh .. and to hear ‘quotes’ that always say ‘The only good Jew is a Dead Jew’ is really disgustingly racist.

        To ANTAR. No we didn’t live peacefully nor coexist. We were taxed extra and extorted and driven from agriculture and were attacked by mobs when they felt like it. Also, a Muslim could go into a Jew’s house, steal what he wanted, rape his wife and the Jew couldn’t appear in court against him.

        • 5thDrawer

          Okay guys. Contemplate this … Clash  of the ‘gods’.
            Seems to me that about the time the Egyptian sun god Ra was in decline, humans there had to come up with another one.
          Around that time, the Greeks were thinking about that whole rotating sky thing – which kind of blows the chariot of fire too.
          History: Astrolabe.
          “The origins of the astrolabe were in classical Greece. Apollonius (ca. 225 BC), the great codifier of conic sections.”
          “The most influential individual on the theory of the astrolabe projection was Hipparchus who was born in Nicaea in Asia Minor (now Iznik in Turkey) about 180 BC but studied and worked on the island of Rhodes.”
          “The astrolabe was introduced to the Islamic world in the eighth and ninth centuries through translations of Greek texts. The astrolabe was fully developed during the early centuries of Islam.”
          (See Wikipedia for complete known history of astrolabe)

          So … from at least 225BC to the 14th century, humans had to adjust theories on gods to fit with the developing scientific evidence. It is certain that thinking people were doing it before, and had to expand on the science after.
            What happened in the ‘middle east’ was the One God theory developed – and two tribes decided to fight over Him.  (I capitalize out of respect.  😉
           Basically, this is racism.
          Let’s say … 3000 years of racism. On both sides, I am sure. Only problem, one side’s version of the same God added some extra nasty points of how a human should live a life … with punishment meted out more by man instead of the god if one didn’t adhere to the man-made ‘rules’.
          These became two of the biggest ‘beliefs’ by humans on the planet. (Although, NOT exclusive.) And the good (humane) points of each are driven down through history by their various translations.
            Can humans learn to concentrate on the good?
          Maybe in another 3000 years ….

          If some human ideology (belief) prevents negotiation and any way to settle disputes, then you can’t blame the one who constantly needs to defend, and does it successfully.

            the past will always follow the zionist until they ive back the land they stole…once justice is served then there should be a settlement of some sort because at the end of the day the euro-jews have lived there now for more then 60 years. but to keep it as it is..the zionist taking more and more land, killing innosents, trangressing all sorts of human rights, then it won’t go away….the past will be on their back…don’t be frustrated man this is reality…

            it does nto matter what the UN at that time said or did, it was not a just action because they should have known that these poeple’s numbers would grow and that they would need more land but they were happy to get them off their back because of a racist factor too.

            there is a very good reason why the arabs who helped welcomed the jews on their land escaping oppression in europe to refuse every UN resolution….ba3den the zionist state has its fair share of refusing UN resolution itself….

            your last statement shows your true colours… zionists like you use this excuse of defense to kill, oppress, emprison all they like innosent pple who have nothing to do with their leaders….all they want is to have their land back…

            to reason this as self defense goes against the very thing you believe in…respect for difference….

            i feel disgusted.

          Antar … I am hardly a zionist … I am only stating obvious results in the history of mankind … to the victor go the spoils.
          It seems to me the ‘racisim’ factor is a HUGE thing. Everyone wants to know their blood-lines – and then argues about that too. But I already talked about that. I’m disgusted by the fact no-one wants to actually talk peace – between ALL the tribes.

            israel the last state who wants peace…if anything your frustration should go to the zionist state.

        •  We have had a continuous presence here for thousands of years and are the indigenous people. The land was not given to us, we fought for it back over a very long period.

            the arab jews yes but not the euro jews who had their anscestories in europe and know nothing abou tth eland of palestine, arab land or jerusalem itself except from their tanakh….

            you are an idiot to think that pple believe your f***story….if it was believable your terrorist satet would not have fought hard and divided, pppreseed, terrorised and destroyes pple families and homes to claim what is not rightfully its own.

            f*** u who do you think you are that God Loves you and no body else…you f***, you will burn in Hellfire and i, with many many victims of your racism and theft, would enjoy seeing you suffer.

            you do not deserve my respect in replyinh so i will ignore you from now….

            f**** u

      • To ANTAR. No we didn’t live peacefully nor coexist. We were taxed extra and extorted and driven from agriculture and were attacked by mobs when they felt like it. Also, a Muslim could go into a Jew’s house, steal what he wanted, rape his wife and the Jew couldn’t appear in court against him.

          Okay guys. Contemplate this … Clash  of the ‘gods’.
            Seems to me that about the time the Egyptian sun god Ra was in decline, humans there had to come up with another one.
          Around that time, the Greeks were thinking about that whole rotating sky thing – which kind of blows the chariot of fire too.
          History: Astrolabe.
          “The origins of the astrolabe were in classical Greece. Apollonius (ca. 225 BC), the great codifier of conic sections.”
          “The most influential individual on the theory of the astrolabe projection was Hipparchus who was born in Nicaea in Asia Minor (now Iznik in Turkey) about 180 BC but studied and worked on the island of Rhodes.”
          “The astrolabe was introduced to the Islamic world in the eighth and ninth centuries through translations of Greek texts. The astrolabe was fully developed during the early centuries of Islam.”
          (See Wikipedia for complete known history of astrolabe)

          So … from at least 225BC to the 14th century, humans had to adjust theories on gods to fit with the developing scientific evidence. It is certain that thinking people were doing it before, and had to expand on the science after.
            What happened in the ‘middle east’ was the One God theory developed – and two tribes decided to fight over Him.  (I capitalize out of respect.  😉
           Basically, this is racism.
          Let’s say … 3000 years of racism. On both sides, I am sure. Only problem, one side’s version of the same God added some extra nasty points of how a human should live a life … with punishment meted out more by man instead of the god if one didn’t adhere to the man-made ‘rules’.
          These became two of the biggest ‘beliefs’ by humans on the planet. (Although, NOT exclusive.) And the good (humane) points of each are driven down through history by their various translations.
            Can humans learn to concentrate on the good?
          Maybe in another 3000 years ….

    SOCIAL INJUSTICE – in Tripoli LEBANON. Far worse than these Israelis experience …. arrests and long detention without charges.

    ““The vast majority of those detained have spent a period of time that is longer than the time they would have spent had they been charged and sent to prison, keeping in mind that the accusations range from selling mobile phone cards to accidental contact with someone.”The activist said families were also feeling the strain of not being with their loved ones.“There are social implications to these detentions. There are children who were only months old when their fathers were detained and now they are aged between four and five years and don’t even know what their fathers’ faces look like,” Mohammad said.“There are also the hard economic circumstances of the families as a result of the detentions,” he added.Mohammad said the protesters hoped there could be a resolution to the problem under the government of Prime Minister Najib Mikati, “and he is the city’s son … we wish him well, for he is a man of justice.”

    Well, except for that last line, I agree. What the hell is going on ?? Justice delayed is justice denied. And here there is none!

    We can note one aberration of ‘modern’ thinking …
    “Israeli students have been trying to bring about change for over three weeks now.”
      Today’s twittering youth think all they want to happen in their lives should happen as fast as their spatulate thumbs can fly.

    •  I tis a problem with modern man-  everyone wants “instant gratification”.
