They're fighting for cottage [cheese] and we're fighting for our homes

Israelis across the board seem to have found a cause to unite them - cottage cheese.
  A grass root movement protesting the steep rise in prices of cottage cheese caught everyone's attention and has already been discussed at the government level.
Why were we able to successfully take action on this issue, and not on so many critical issues?  Is it because of the wide consensus behind the issue of rising food prices?  According to an article I just read there is also a growing consensus among adult Israelis against returning Yehuda and Shomron and against the uprooting of more Israelis from their homes.
So how do we successfully campaign? Will the government be able to do what it wants regardless of what the majority of citizens wants?  How do we put an end to the destruction of Jewish homes?
