But Israel presents an interesting case. here it was not a lunatic divinely appointed judaic fringe that took over the government from a democratic one duly elected, standing on a groundwork of well established democratic principles. In Israel, it was the very democratic government that opened the door wide to those who now mock and scorn it and its institutions. It was the secular, democratic government that placed these rabbis where they are today, established the hesder yeshivot that bred them, sponsored( and continues to do so) the ilk of Hebron and hundreds of oather colonies throughout the WB. It is like a trainer believing that he can tame a tiger, that a wild animal can be domesticated. So, in the case of Israel, the fanatic fundamentalists are joined at the hip with the secularists and it seems that to excise one from the other will result in the death of the host body, so best to just ignore, as Burg points out. It may be too late for surgery.
