Zionism was a secular national movement par exellance. That the moderate relgious parties- Ha'mizrahi and Ha'poel Ha'mizrahi latched on to the Zionist parties (left and right)was a political move if not an ideological one. It cost the secular socialist parties their soul and ultimately their standing and power. A sea change has occured as the religious parties have made political strides, enlarged their power base, especially in the military which in Israel determines almost everything, and voila- Israel will march inexorably towards turning into a non democratic religious state. The result- refer to the history of the Hasmonean state.
