The death of Moshe Silman, who set himself on fire eight days ago, which was followed by several other threats to carry out similar deeds, and another self-immolation Sunday, have caused leaders of the leftist "social justice" protests to ask their followers to calm down.
"I am full of respect and appreciation to all of the women and men who have to deal daily with the Repossession Office, National Insurance, Income Tax and the extraordinary difficulties that the state piles onto them, and they continue despite that difficulty and do not quit. That is courage," wrote protest leader Daphni Leef on her Facebook page Sunday.
"A single-parent mother [leftist Newspeak for divorced and unwed mothers ed.] who works from morning to evening so that her children can have a warm meal and school supplies is a heroine! An 80 year old woman who still works and does not quit is a heroine! The residents of the [lower end] neighborhoods who fight the corrupt establishment for years and cry out over public housing, who go to the Knesset and promote this important agenda, are heroes!"
"Don't give up," she pleaded with her followers, assuring them Israeli society had "awoken" and that change was on the way....

If they would begin to embrace a little less nuttier philosophy, maybe their party members would be less likely to get so, er, burned up about the issues.
But it does seem they have a dilemma. Should they call their strugglers heroes and heroines? Or should they throw pity parties in view of all? Decisions, decisions!
Attention leftist social justice protesters - this sounds very effective, you’d really be making a statement!
To all the leftists of the world: Please do! Please! You need a bic?
The problem with self immolation is that you won’t be there to get your accolades on the leftist cocktail party circuit.
In Isreal, the government owns all the land. People can only get a 99 year lease. So, you pay your whole life, and you and your family own nothing.
Socialism: still not working after all these years.
Maybe they can call them ‘victims’ and talk about what a ‘tragedy’ it is. Then they can demand social justice legislation to stop them from self-immolation. Pass Idiotic Socialist Law No. 55, before someone else dies! Just guessing, based on history of nutty gun law campaigns in the US.
I thought the left believed in protests as freedom of speech?
But seriously folks, isn’t this evidence these folks are not just incorrect but in fact mentally ill?
Get real "Light up" a moslem instead.
You could even do it en masse to Jim Morrison’s Come on Baby Light My Fire.
Silman killed himself because he was mentally ill. Everyone in Israel knows this by now. He tried before in 2005, when none of these supposed grievances against Netanyahu & Co. existed. He was a druggie and petty thief as well. Daphne Leef is a despicable Marxist dyke who s gleefully ignoring all the above facts in order to use Silman’s death for her own political gain.
There was some idjit a couple years back who actually applied for a demo license to self-immolate on the sidewalk.
Dunno what happened to him.
