Faking the poverty figures

Report by National Insurance Institute claims a quarter of Israelis live below the poverty line. Poverty is a relative, arbitrarily defined measure. Israeli socialists keep raising the poverty line income, assuring that enough population remains below it. The Torah allocates orphans and widows a right to glean and rabbis added 10% charity. Israel allows capable people off work and provides them with benefits which would make middle-class Israelis of fifty years ago jealous.
Israel is the only free market country to possess a Social Welfare ministry, a socialist outfit.
