Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 10 comments
One might think that a majority of some 80% non-Orthodox Jews may have an easy time in keeping the Orthodox minority in its place. The fault lies with our politicians who, for the sake of forming coalitions to get into or stay in power, sell us the majority out to the small Orthodox parties who demand to be officially recognized as the only sanctioned form of Judaism in the Jewish state, while milking the national treasury for every shekel they get a hold of for their yeshivas and other institutions. Of course, most of them don't work and thus don't contribute to the available revenues in the treasury, so we the non-Orthodox majority subsidize the minority, often at the expense of much needed social programs for the entire society. TIME IS LONG OVERDUE TO BREAK THE ORTHODOX MONOPOLY!
