"And when I say react, the wise will understand my hint," he warned.
Eini said that he would wait for the publication of the recommendations later this week, as "there are a lot of leaks from the committee, but I don't rely on them because leaks are naturally [the work] of one interest or another."
"They say it is the protest of the middle class, but it's also of the
lower class," he continued. "The recommendations will not provide an
answer to the protest" if they don't deal with housing, the lower class
and pensioners.The 14-member Trajtenberg Committee is set to present its
recommendations to the government later this week on how to lessen
the financial burden of Israeli citizens.
