Why do Israeli's seem so obsessed with "leftists" . It seems a bit peculiar that they see the world in such hard ideological terms. I'm sort of an American centrist somewhere between a conservative democrat and a liberal (if there are any left) republican. I have problems with some Israeli policies and trends, but not as a left or right thing but just from basic values of human rights, democracy, and freedom. which I as a Jew, apparently unlike many Israelis, see as not incompatible with my Judaism. . It seems many Israeli's are very primitive in their conception of Judaism and challenged by having to integrate their religious beliefs and practices with modernity and values that we might say came out of the Western enlightenment, but many of which the West to some extent got from Judaism in the first place. Ironically Zionist Israel seems closer to the Shtetl and European Ghetto than America.
