50% intermarriage & divorce in double figures. So why must ISRAEL change? Meir I'll do a deal with you & it's an offer you shouldn't refuse. I won't interfere in your problem in the GALUT and you don't stick your nose in ours. You live in Canada, educate your youth with PRIDE in being Jewish, Be truthful with them on Zionism, use law abiding proud ISRAELIS as the example, don't try to make hero's of troublemakers marching to Homesh & other places in Jordan, STOP cramming religion down their throats thereby frightening them away & into the arms of non Jews. We in ISRAEL are no less Jewish than you in the Galut. Much as I hate using the term, perhaps MORE so as we live it every single day. When we travel on a bus, speak Ivrit & not ivriSSS, pay with Shekalim, watch TV, read a newspaper other than Ha'Aretz b'Anglit!!! Israel the JEWISH STATE. warts & all I LIVE & LOVE IT! Think about it Meir & others.
