What is the significance of the fact that the trouble began with Lavan's sons?
Oznayim la'Torah: Nothing has changed, just like then, so too now 1 - It alwaybegins with the youth, the students, who start with the demnstrations, claiming that we took everything that belonged to their parents, completely forgetting that it is often thanks to our hard work that they got to where they are in the first place, and it is not long before the older generation joins forces with them - no matter how little they had before we came along and, with the blessing of Hashem, improved the standard of living, and, how, not long before they had themselves admitted that it was we who brought prosperity to their land.
'Ma'aseh Avos Si'man le'Banim'.
Having said "Lakach Yakov eis Kol asher le'Avinu", what did Lavan's sons mean they added "u'me'asher le'Avinu Asah eis Kol ha'Kavod ha'Zeh"?

למה העושר נקרא כבוד?
מהר"ל (נתיבות עולם, נתיב הנדיבות, פ"א עמ' רמג, ד"ה מדת): אם העשיר שומר את העושר בביתו [ולא משתמש בו] אין הבדל בינו לבין העני, ולכן מעלת העשיר נראית במה שהוא מוציא מעושרו ומוותר לאחרים, וזהו הכבוד שבעושר.
