10 Talkbacks for this article
1. Israel: a banana republic?
Jon   (07.31.11)
2. 1 Jon Milk and honey land. With Tora.
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (07.31.11)
3. There is plenty of money for war,
Rich ,   Toronto, Canada   (07.31.11)
but no money for health care or hospitals in Israel. It's a disgrace!
4. #2 - Ora
Yahav ,   Haifa   (07.31.11)
The milk and honey here cost a lot more than elsewhere! And Torah does not feel a stomach!
5. Spoilt brats
David ,   New York   (07.31.11)
Israelis are behaving like spoilt brats. Inflation is a phenomenon everywhere in the world as are high house prices. Israelis should also understand they have unprecedented defence issues. Further an overly generous welfare and land policy towards arabs makes high taxes and prices inevitable
6. how all Docs with stout built keep pace with medicine advanc
observer ,   Egypt   (07.31.11)
7. #5 You don't know what spoiled is
Korem ,   New York, USA   (07.31.11)
Are you crazy? Doctors training for 7 years and then working 36 hour or more shifts, 80-100 hours a the US for the hard work they at least get paid, but in Israel they get a salary of 36000 USD. That's not even enough to support a family with the current housing prices! I'd like to see you work like them for just one week and get barely 1/2 shekels and see how YOU would react to people calling you spoiled for complaining!
8. Housing and living costs are high because taxes are high
Alexander ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (07.31.11)
And taxes are high because of social welfare - especeially the one being paid to Arabs. So, get people to work, limit the social welfare and that way limit the living and housing costs.
9. to nr. 4.
cosmopolitist ,   our world/planet   (07.31.11)
this is a very good talkback, at my opinion. this is finance and economy in the core. my sympathy for the jewish people in their just fight in order to improve their standard of living for the entire people/population.
10. new wilderness
asian eagle ,   mindanao, phil   (08.01.11)
the present events are quite familiar.... when moses led the israelites out of the land of egypt, there was much discontent among the people and they rebelled against moses... not even and thanking on what God had provided them on their long journey... i see these present protestors are no different, and let them be warned of the wrath of God.... pls take heed....
