The article discusses the nature of the social protest in Israel. He begins with the protest leaders themselves and how they are seeking to include more people from the population from the middle and lower classes, the religious and the secular, and the Jews and Arabs. The author compares this sentiment that seeks to include everybody to that of a stork, a bird standing on one leg only, the socio-economic, while hiding the other leg in its feathers, the issues on the occupation and settlements.
