In the News (From themarker.com): “An Israeli start-up trendIT, which developed the technology that provides real-time demographic data…, believes that not less than 280 thousand people came to the demonstration in Tel Aviv [last Saturday].”
- Among them, 70% belong to the 40% of the wealthiest Israelis.
- 25% of the participants have income higher than 80% of the population.
- Only 8% represented 40% of the low income class.
- Almost 60% of the protesters were residents of the central part of the country: Tel Aviv (39% of protesters), Gush Dan, and Ha Sharon region (the most affluent areas of the country).
My Comment: Right was “the Egyptian paper Al Youm al Sabeh [which] headlined its report ‘the plague of Arab revolutions reaches Israel.'” (Source: Haaretz.com)
