It's very clear what negative spiritual and cultural curses both camps (secular and Haredi) have have brought to the Jewish nation. The secular have brought us doubt, fear, spiritual confusion, and they justify it by their sacrifice for the land of Israel. The Haredim by showing only repulsion to their secular brothers have alienated them and disgraced Judaism by refusing to contribute to the security of the Jewish people, and they justify it by remaining true in their eyes to Jewish historical truth. Both have to do repentance, for their intolerable faults, for there to be any unity.
