Just accept that the Orthodox are the real Jews. The very existence of Israel in a constant form of grave offense to Orthodoxy. I do not believe for one minute that secular politicians have never made offensive comments about Orthodox Jews. That is a lie! It is little wonder that there is a secular majority nowadays: As we see it, the secular Zionists stirred up anti-Semitism which led to the Holocaust which did away with 6,000,000 of Europe’s Jews, 80% of whom were Orthodox. It also made many surviving Jews leave Orthodoxy. Then if that was not enough, the Zionist’s in Israel did all they could to recondition the refugee Jews and those who arrived on Aliya operations to stripe away their traditional Judaism in favour of a godless Hebrew social nationalism. Ovadia Yosef did a lot to bring these hundreds of thousands of Sephardi Jews back to their rightful religious heritage. No wonder you liberals despised him! You cannot expect respect from the Haredim after what you have done to them. Shame on you! Shame on Haartez! Long may the Haredim continue to control and protect Judaism in Israel in the form it had been for centuries – long before the rise of the “empty” secular Western liberals. No to unholy secular control in the Holy Land.
