Social justice protest leader Itzik Alrov on Wednesday welcomed the retirement of Bank of Israel Gov. Stanley Fischer, saying he was "primarily responsible for the real estate bubble" in Israel.

In response to Fischer's retirement, Alrov said his achievements only "look good on paper," citing expanding social gaps and price hikes during his tenure as examples of failures during his leadership.
