They have demanded the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, decent housing for all "We want social justice," has been one of the slogans chanted by hundreds of demonstrators have marched Sunday through the streets of Jerusalem.

So there you have wanted to move outraged to convey a message to Netanyahu. "Here we are, your government has to give us a solution now," said Arelina, a professor at a community center, while the deafening sound of whistles and bongos only communication allowed less than five feet, the dreaded troops Yamam (units National Police Special) by observing a few meters from the demonstrators.

The collected so outraged by Netanyahu launched his glove for a week at the beginning of the demonstrations in Tel Aviv, where Prime Minister encouraged them to move to Jerusalem to make their voices heard, and hours before the Cabinet vote on the two measures promised to resolve the crisis to end the monopoly of the state agency that manages more than 90% of the land in Israel and remove the bureaucracy of the local and district committees, responsible for issuing building permits, which often take between one and two years.

Moreover, Netanyahu has said Sunday in a statement issued after the weekly meeting of his government tax incentives to builders who build faster and empty homeowners who want to rent or sell. "The land of Israel must be for the Israelis," said the prime minister in the same text, ensuring that he already knew the problem for years.
