“Last Saturday [13 Aug 2011], hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of a Middle Eastern city.
“Demanding change, they were fed up with the ruling elite and said their government was no longer listening to its people.
“But this was not Egypt, Tunisia or Libya. This was Israel.
“If the Israeli government had hoped the street protests, which began three weeks ago, would lose momentum and fade away, it has not happened.
“An estimated 300,000 people from different backgrounds joined the latest marches across the country.
“Just as their counterparts did five months ago in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, Israeli demonstrators have taken over the heart of Tel Aviv.”
