Thank you Anselm! Israel has allowed the Haredim special favour since its founding: no tax, no military service, no public transport on weekends, public roads closed to other citizens, secular women forced to conform to Haredi dress codes in public areas, the appropriation of publicly owned buses and imposition of sexist rules therein - not to mention illegal settlements, the elevation of Rabin's killer to hero status and the deliberate misdirection of soldiers on active service. No wonder they only get more aggressive each year! This all goes back to Israel's failure in 1948 to clearly declare itself a secular state in which religion is a private matter (while noting the country's role as a safe haven for Jews). Time to correct this - otherwise the Jewish Taliban will do for Israel what their Muslim counterpart did for Afghanistan.
