Israelis to Protest Today
The last few weeks have seen a series of peaceful street demonstrations across Israel. This evening in Israel, thousands will be protesting against the high cost of housing. Despite a growing economy, affordable housing and the high cost of living is a significant problem in Israel, which could ultimately bring down the Netanyahu government. I hope to provide a link to live video - the demonstrations will begin at 9:00 pm in Israel (1:00 pm Chicago time). In case, I'm out riding - the weather is pretty spectacular here - go to YNet's Hebrew or English site. They should have a link. And the protesters have lined up some pretty good musical acts. So at the very least, if you are a fan of Israel music, it may be worth checking out.
