From the BBC:
Representatives of Israel’s 250,000 Holocaust survivors are to demand more state support in a protest outside Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s house.
A government offer of a monthly stipend of $20 (£10) was rejected as too little by survivor groups, and they vowed to go ahead with the Jerusalem action.
Many elderly survivors say they struggle to pay for medical treatment and, in some cases, food.
Mr Olmert called for a “fair and balanced” solution as his cabinet met.
He pointed out that his government was the first to take up the issue of providing for Holocaust survivors’ families with special aid.
If Mr Olmert’s claim on the Israeli governments before him is true, it does not reflect well on them.
