In the movie "Chariots of Fire" about two English atheletes runneing in the Olympics against each other, one Jewish the other a Protestant minister, the answer by the minister as to why such competition exists, the minister answers "God is not in the de4mocracy business." I thought of this statement when I read Mr. Strenger who makes a fair point about those in Israel who have not read Herzl. Herzl, Marx or whomever be the reigning intellectual of the day does not have the authority to decide Israel's direction. That is the core dilemma and there is nothing that can be done about it.
