      Netanyahu: Keep Economy While Finding Solutions

      Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu spoke to the Finance Committee about the on-going protests against the rising cost of living. He stated, "Israelis are finding it difficult to make ends meet and the gaps in society grow. On one hand, the intention is to reduce disparities, especially the middle class, and on the other hand, keep the economy and the financial strength of Israel. You can not break the frame. You should address the issues and yet keep our economy. You can save the economy, while finding solutions. If we keep the economy, and keep our country then we can solve problems and prevent adversity."
