Birdi ,   Israel   (12.15.18)
Do you know how much child allowance monthly payments are? A pitiful amount. The money being spent on a private plane for Bibi is a shameful when so many Israeli children & elderly folk are forced to miss meals, lack medicine & live in cold homes.
2. Fake News/statistics if there ever were any! By now every
thinking citizen should be aware of the Usual Suspects: NGO-disruptive behavior. All with one purpose only: cause dissent among Israelis....
We’ve never had it so good and we know it!
Yes there are poor in Israel and no matter how many : that’s a shame.
But implying we’re living in Warsaw ghetto is just too plain dumb!

5. That can't be right
Empress Trudy ,   Raleigh   (12.16.18)
One out of 9 Israelis which would have to be half of all children, living in poverty? Lemme guess if you dig into that they're adding every person in Gaza and every Arab in Judea and Samaria.
6. You see 'NGO' attached to anything: you know it's poison!
7. Congratulations to Welfare Minister Haim Katz
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem   (12.16.18)

8. Centre-left better at social issues.Is there anyone to lead
Sam ,   Montreal   (12.16.18)
9. The poor
Yaakov ,   Beer Sheva   (12.16.18)
There should be no hungry in this country. But we have many that are hungry, cold, sick and nothing the government is about to fix.
It is a shame.
10. As long as it aint Iran ,it don't matter !
11. wow that much poverty
dorian s fund ,   tel aviv   (12.16.18)
If I am not mistaken the total Israeli population is around 8 million people and you are trying to tell me that 1.2 million people are living in poverty and 1 million children are missing meals and going hungry. That means 12% of the population is poor and hungry. How is this possible. Do you could the ultra orthodox and the Hasidim in your counts. Lets remove them.

How can that many children go hungry. Why do we not have school meals to make sure every child is fed in school, at least two meals a day.

Stop having babies.. The government promotes having jewish babies but evidently as long as they can be counted in the population no one cares about caring for them and feeding them.. Let's give tax credit to have babies and then let them starve.

I also do not understand the comments about seniors not getting proper health care. I find that the health care in Israel is great for everyone and they have all the care they need.

12. Buy more weapons, kill more people, good for the economy .

13. 5 billions Shekels go to the Illegal settlements every year
Yossi Khen   (12.16.18)
5 billions Shekels go to the Illegal settlements every year no wonder that no money left for the rest of the people in Israel.
14. Arabs and the illegal African on the bench
Lee ,   LA   (12.17.18)
Take the Arabs, illegals and some of the Haredi out and the numbers go down dramatically.
