  6. Ms. Daphni Leef from Kfar Shmaryahu leads the social revolution in Israel. Such a funny joke. A poor girl wants to have a cheap apartment in Tel-Aviv. So cute, so cute. And her desire to to bring down the government has nothing to do with her active participation in left radical movements - nothing whatsoever. No politics involved.
