    I understand that the rabbis think they are above the common law as they publish laws themselves at least to their followers. A country cannot have two sections, one religious and another secular. There is only one law that of the country and if religious people don't want to lilve according to this law they must be punished. What people do in their home is their own business but education, military service should be one and only one law and everyone should have to follow it. The trouble is that our government, that means we the oridinary people pay out of our own purse,to allow parts of the country to be education differently, not to serve in the army and to influence the way we live and that is intollerable. The problem is that our government allowed all this to happen and that is why we are in the position we are in today, debasing women, defacing mosques, destroying Arab properties without having to pay the price. It is not the televiision or journalists who caused this but our elected government during the last 20 years.
