President Shimon Peres said he is "very proud" of the social protests taking place during the last month in Israel, saying that he cannot remember a time when people from so many sectors of society got behind the same cause.

The protests, he said, are completely justified. "The most interesting thing is that nobody organized this, it was completely spontaneous and the they don't want to be organized."
