Well said. I've freakin had it with the orthodox rabbis at home and in Israel. I'm 30-something, born, raised and have a career in N America, have cousins in Herziliyya and Holon, consider myself a Zionist, have thought about aliya more than once, and for now, with this, no more. Really. You've lost me, Israel, after 20 years of thinking about aliya against the wishes of my parents, Bravo, Likud, Shas, and Lieberman. I hope more N American Jews decide to wait to immigrate, so you can stew with the crazies until you figure it out. I hope you don't weaken Israel to the point of breaking it before you do.
