Hitler discovers Israel housing prices – Downfall.wmv
This reflects the desperate situation young people in Israel face today when trying to purchase a home in a humorous way.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Housing anger boils over
Sunday 24 July 2011
Thousands of people marched in central Tel Aviv on Saturday to protest against rising housing costs.
Army Radio estimated that over 15,000 people took to the streets. Israeli citizens have also set up tent camps in a handful of cities throughout the country over the past two weeks in protest at the soaring cost of living.
“We are fighting for our homes!” protesters chanted, saying that they cannot afford to buy or rent flats.
Israel has one of the highest poverty rates and income gaps in the developed world and prices for homes, food and fuel have risen in recent months.
A 1,000-square-foot flat can easily fetch £370,000 in big cities like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and £125,000 to £185,000 in second-tier areas.
The average Israeli salary is about £1,500 per month. Many important jobs, such as teaching and social work, typically pay less than £1,250 a month.

The chairman of Israel’s Histadrut trade union Ofer Eini warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today that his union would join mass protests over housing costs unless the government invited it to talks about the crisis: here. And here.
