They include high food and energy prices, low wages and eroding social benefits, onerous taxes on working households, weak labor rights, education and healthcare deficiencies, as well as other ways neoliberal harshness harms most Israelis.

Netanyahu turned a blind eye. Wealth transfers from Israeli workers to privileged elites and corporate favorites is policy. In early May, public anger again erupted. Expect another long, hot summer.

Perhaps he plans more war to shift public attention. He threatened Iran for months. At issue isn't its nuclear program. It's unchallenged regional hegemony. 

The alleged Iranian threat is baseless. It's program is peaceful, not belligerent. It conforms to Nuclear Non-Proliferation (NPT) provisions. Nothing proves otherwise. It's well known but not acknowledged. 

Israel's a nuclear outlaw. It spurned NPT. It prohibits IAEA inspections. It threatens the region menacingly. Neighbors know the threat. Iran hasn't attacked another country in over 200 years. 

War is official Israeli policy. So is state terror. Fear is stoked to enlist popular support.

Most Israelis oppose attacking Iran without US support. Given administration and congressional hawkishness, expect it after November elections. 

Israel's Likud/Kadima unity government increased chances for what will inflame the entire region and threaten general war beyond it.
