    1. I know Tel Aviv rent is ridiculous, but what’s the use in throwing garbage at police officers? This seems a bit much.

      I’m in California in the USA a long way from where the video was filmed. I applaud your peaceful protests of rent prices. Our economy is causing serious financial problems for a majority of my fellow citizens. Our government has been taken over by big corporate money which is funneled to PACs ( political action committees )to buy hard hitting television ads to elect corporate choices. Our form of government is more of an Oligarchy with the face of a Democracy.
      The root of you problem and similiar problems world wide is poverty controlled by money. I predict that my country will be a 3rd world country within 5 to 10 years.Being a country of immigrants made my countrey great but we do not come together as Americans to address the problems we all face. We have become a country of splinter groups defined by rece,religon,politics and social status. You Isreales speak with one voice. Don’t give up and at least you have a chance to prevail.
      One thing for sure, follow the trail money leaves and unmask the who,what,when,where and why your leaders do what they do.
      good luck,
      just me, fred
