Arab Revolution spreds to ...Israel..?

Following the electrifying presence of more than a quarter of a million protesters in Tel-Aviv, 700,000 more are tipped to join them.

Demanding social justice, lower living costs and government reform, hundreds of thousands of Israelis have poured into the capital in scenes reminiscent of the revolts in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya.

Next month, one million protesters will flood 50 cities in Israel. Next month also marks the declaration of Palestinian Statehood at the UN in New York.

We know that the Israeli government is certainly preparing for that. But are they prepared for their own people to rise up against them?

Time will tell how those events will unfold, but what matters now is why the media is failing to give the same kind of coverage to the revolts in Israel as they did to those in the Arab world earlier this year.
