Israeli protests continue to gain momentum

Some Arab Israelis have joined the chorus complaining about the country's 'corrosive social inequality'.

    Demonstrations over the rising cost of living in Israel are showing no sign of running out of steam.

    Tens of thousands of Israelis returned to the streets on Saturday to bolster a protest movement that is gaining increasing support across the country.

    Its social justice message is finding support with some Arab Israelis, whose backing is crucial if the movement is to shake off its urban middle class tag.
