    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the case of Moshe Silman, who set himself on fire during Saturday night's social justice protest, a "great personal tragedy."

    Netanyahu said during a Likud ministers meeting on Sunday that he had asked Welfare Minister Moshe Kahlon and Housing and Construction Minister Ariel Atias to look into Silman's case.

    Silman, who suffered burns on over 90% of his body, was transferred overnight to the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, where doctors are fighting for his life.

    Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar said Silman's act of self-immolation should "remind us all of the daily hardships – as a society and as individuals – and that we must try to help as much as possible."

    Opposition head Shelly Yachimovich said the "brutal toughening of criteria for public housing and the lack of a public safety net have brought many like Moshe to a dead end and desperation."

    Gee, according to Israel's "Brand Israel" propaganda campaign, Israel's economy is doing great.
