    There are good points & less good points in Gideon Levi's article,but he lost any worth to give his opinions when he said that the Kibbutz Movement has given more to the State andSociety than the religious Zionist movement, of which I am not a member. How many litres of water can Gideon Levi hold in his hands?How do you decide that a long ago dead socialist movement gave more?Drugs, intermarriage to non Jewish volunteers and moving outside the country?The physical building of Israel,yes, moral principals (for2 generations only) the moral standard of our army,yes!But it being ursurped by the religious. How did he measure the moral & spiritual worth of the religious Zionists?(Did G-D tell him what the Gross National Product of all the Mitzvot were worth)?Being Chasid,in Lebanon 1982 right outside Beirut my unit of 75 were 71 Kibbutznikim and 4 religious.The night before going into Beirut so many flocked to this representative of belief to find answers.Editorials should be backed by facts
