Civil empowerment in Israel?

Where is the Israeli Ralph Nader?

After Yom Kippur War in 1973, there were civil protest movements, which eventually caused Golda Meir to resign from her post as the Israeli Prime Minister. However, there were no organizations which lasted for long time and which addressed a spectrum of issues, like Nader’s creations.

The longest surviving organization of protesting citizens, “Peace Now”, dealt with Mideast political issues, rather than with consumer or civil issues.

I am deaf since birth. I played with big computers which eat punched cards and spew out printouts since age 12. Ever since they became available, I work and play with desktop size computers which eat keyboard keypresses and spew out display pixels. Among other things, I developed software which helped the deaf in Israel use the telephone network, by means of home computers equipped with modems. Several years later, I developed Hebrew localizations for some cellular phones, which helped the deaf in Israel utilize the cellular phone networks. I am interested in entrepreneurship, Science Fiction and making the world more accessible to people with disabilities.
