1. Don't look at what he didn't...
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (02.25.15)
Look at what he did. We owe Bibi ,that Israel is in a far better economical position than Europe and America. Considering the number and power of our foes,Israel is still a relatively safe country thanks G-D.
2. Housing crisis
Avi schryber ,   Givat zeev   (02.25.15)
There are so many reasons for a change of leadership in Israel! Housing is a fundamental need for every resident ! People cannot afford to buy apartments and so spend thousands on rent ! The public housing sector is contracting and it is almost impossible to rent with Prazot and amidar ! People are living in basements converted storerooms even under the stairs in buildings ! How do I know ? I'm a social worker who works disadvantaged people ! So it's time for a change ! This government is destroying the fabric of the community!
3. If this is not blatantly political, then what is?

4. ... and they'll still vote Nethanyahu...
Brian ,   London   (02.25.15)
... is there any way that the Israeli nation will recognise that Nethanyahu is driving them straight in to a brick wall?? Has he tapped in so deeply to their deepest fears that they are unable to see anything else? Very very sad... He has failed on security (big time), failed on diplomacy (massive time) and failed on the economy (humungous time). He is also a rotten role model for society.
5. Things will not get any better.
Indi ,   London, UK   (02.25.15)
Get out of Israel if you can.
6. Cut welfare too - this might reverse the demographic bomb?
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (02.25.15)
It could become too expensive to stay in Israel - if you are on welfare - or worse - not on it.
7. Annex West Bank NOW and BUILD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10. To Brian @ No.4
Jennie ,   Israel/US   (02.26.15)
How nice of you to opine from the land of our "staunch supporter and friendliest ally" (wink...wink..) : the British Empire ...Why do you think Netanyahu is serving his 4TH TERM as the HEAD of the sovereign State of Israel, elected in 3 consecutive terms in the free and democratic elections.. !! ? ? And there is no way, our Nation will ever stop electing the very best candidates for the PM position.. Your post from London is the best endorsement for Bibi ...
11. And maybe there was a war that took all his concentration !
barbara ,   Haifa   (02.26.15)
Third world wages and first world (and then some ) housing prices ,and a Prime Minister who could care less,
13. To build involves expenditures
Adler J   (02.26.15)
that apparently the Israeli government according to Lapid, do not haves the money, thats why he thought keren kayemeth hayesod should be nationalize so the government can use their treasure to make affordable housing. -There are amazing prefabricated houses for the Mediterranean weather, and less expensive. Some are made in Turkey, Germany and Australia. Netanyahu know pretty well how Aliyah from France always increase house prices. Shalom
