Summary During the summer of 2011, a social and economic revolution began in Israel. The events were catalyzed by rising costs of food, rent, and health care without a similar rise in income. The protests were predominantly attended and organized by people between the ages of twenty and forty. For this thesis, the author gleaned from interviews with over a dozen young Israelis the following opinions regarding the zeitgeist of the movement: First, violence is necessary to create meaningful change. Second, many young adults consider emigration from Israel to another country a valid option in seeking a better life. Third, those who choose to stay in Israel and attend school will seek education in conflict zones due to lower costs of living and tuition. These sentiments diverge greatly from those of previous generations.
